I executed cmd adb devices from terminal but instead of getting list of connected devices, I observed below error:

List of devices attached adb server version (32) doesn't match this client (36); killing... * daemon started successfully * How can I get a list of connected devices?

Faced this issue - adb server doesn't match this client on Mac:

I have tried different solution, But below works for me -
Uninstall "Vysor" plugin if you have installed for Chrome
Under Home folder > find .Android folder and move to trash
Goto, Android sdk > delete/move to trash platform-tools folder
Again install/download from Android SDK Manager

  • Open terminal -
  • adb kill-server
  • adb start-server

Check adb devices, It will work and display you all connected devices. Hope it helps !
