List all installed packages using android adb command

If we want to identify all the installed packages on an android device / mobile, we need to use below command,

 $ adb shell 
 $ cmd package list packages 

In the older versions of android, you can also try using

 $ pm list packages 

For “cmd package” command following more options are available,

  list packages [-f] [-d] [-e] [-s] [-3] [-i] [-l] [-u] [-U] [--uid UID] [--user USER_ID] [FILTER]
    Prints all packages; optionally only those whose name contains
    the text in FILTER.
      -f: see their associated file
      -d: filter to only show disabled packages
      -e: filter to only show enabled packages
      -s: filter to only show system packages
      -3: filter to only show third party packages
      -i: see the installer for the packages
      -l: ignored (used for compatibility with older releases)
      -U: also show the package UID
      -u: also include uninstalled packages
      --uid UID: filter to only show packages with the given UID
      --user USER_ID: only list packages belonging to the given user
