How can I make my android smartphone visible for virtual machine? I am using Linux as my host machine.

First enable USB 2.0 for virtual machine.
Go to Settings for the VM, Go to USB. Click USB+ icon and select device from List.

Then install VirtualBox Extension Packs.
Download latest one from http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/ and double click on it to install.

Last step is to add your user to vboxusers group:

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

Reboot your computer and that’s all.

Run your virtual machine and pass-through USB drive to VirtualBox guest OS, go to Devices->USB and click on USB device to share.
