Inspect Element on Android!
Its not immediately apparent that you can use an Android VM as a remote device for Chrome Inspect Element, but you can. It took a little digging but here’s the steps that it took to enable .
To enable inspect element, you’ll need to install a recent version of Android, 4.4 (one that comes preinstalled with Chrome and not browser).
- Go to Settings -> About Phone and scroll down.
- Locate the Build Number and Tap it 7 times
- Go back to Settings
- Go to Developer Options and check USB Debugging
- Now on your host computer, go to Chrome and in the URL bar type
- Locate your connected Android VM. Congrats, now you have Inspect Element, just like iOS (>better late than never right?)

You’ll need to create an account to download GenyMotion, but the hassle is worth it.
