Command line tool scrcpy is probably the most powerful screen recorder for anyone who needs to record their screen in places with restricted screenshots and screencasts, like banking apps, password managers, and co. But on the Android 12 previews, the tool just straight out refused to work. Luckily, the developers found the reason and could work around it in the latest update of scrcpy, v1.18, but you might not like the implications: You'll no longer be able to see blocked apps using the tool.

If you've ever used the Android Debug Bridge (ADB), you know that it's such a hassle to set up (if you don't happen to be a developer who installed Android Studio already anyway). But with new web tools like the WebUSB API, there's no longer a need to rely on local software to fulfill the most basic ADB needs. That's where WebADB comes in, a free and open-source web service spotted by XDA Developers that allows you to debug Android devices from any supported browser.
