How To Connect to Real Device for Mobile Automation


I’m new to mobile automation and I would like to know how to connect to a real device. I saw something in the forum but it did not teach the exact steps. also for example I want to automate something in google chrome how would I add the app?

If you have a step by step procedure that will be much appreciated.

FYI. I have already installed Android Studio and Appium. I was able to connect but only to emulator. what I need is to connect to real device and real app.
