Quick tip for installing android apk files – On Developer options, enable adb debugging over network. You wouldn’t need to be rooted.
Use the following simple commands for adb install over WiFi or through an USB connection. WiFi just needs to be on the same network and doesn’t have to be over a Hot Spot between your phone and system.
sudo adb devices
sudo adb connect 192.168.1.107
sudo adb install -r <path to the apk on your PC>
Using -r in the install command will over write any previous installation of the same apk.
