Its features include:

Prerequisites

The Android device requires at least API 21 (Android 5.0).

Audio forwarding is supported for API >= 30 (Android 11+).

Make sure you enabled USB debugging on your device(s).

On some devices, you also need to enable an additional option USB debugging (Security Settings) (this is an item different from USB debugging)
to control it using a keyboard and mouse. Rebooting the device is necessary once
this option is set.

Note that USB debugging is not required to run scrcpy in OTG
mode
