Quickly identify and inspect chrome problems on mobile devices

I post this as a giveaway to help testers and developers quickly identify (possible) problems on websites when using mobile devices. I noticed there is no general awareness how to quickly check and verify console errors in mobile devices on IOS or Android when using a chrome browser.

Open a new tab on your mobile device in chrome and type in address bar:

chrome://inspect

You will now see the following screen:

Now you can open a new tab with your web application or website you want to verify. Notice all javascript logging is displayed on the chrome inspect tab.

This way you can verify quickly if there are any console errors or identify possible problems with your web application on mobile devices.

Happy testing!

  1. Hi Joost,

    On my Android (v10.0.0) phone got the following:

    This site can’t be reachedThe webpage at chrome://inspect/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
    ERR_INVALID_URL

    Do I have to set some Dev mode to enable this feature?
