I just tested scrcpy which works really well for seeing and controlling an android device from my computer.
It would be awesome if KDE connect could reuse the code/ideas to have the same feature but without the need to activate adb and to plug in USB.
I also opened a ticket on their side: https://github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy/issues/13

If there was an easy way to achieve scrcpy's functionality without requiring adb I'm sure its developers would have found it, so I don't see us implementing that.
Another possible option could be MiraCast, but as far as I know there are no good Linux implementations and I'm definitly not going to do that myself

I may be mistaking but from what I understood scrcpy is using adb to push an application on the phone, which serves as a screensharing server. I thought it was possible to use KDE connect as the screensharing server instead and use its communication canal instead of the usb.
But I may have misunderstood how scrcpy uses adb.

It says in https://github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy/issues/13:

So it seems that `adb` has a second use, here.
