Smart Crop for Visual Regression Testing using Appium

With SmartUI's new real-device mobile notification status bar crop feature, you can take your Appium visual regression testing workflows to the next level. 

By using Smart Crop, you can crop out the status bar from screenshots and focus solely on the core UI elements during visual comparisons.

SmartUI leverages machine learning algorithms to detect and crop the status bar from screenshots accurately. This allows you to concentrate solely on the important UI elements by excluding them from visual comparisons.

Run your Selenium tests using SmartWait Functionality

Hey folks 👋 

LambdaTest Automation now supports the SmartWait feature to increase the efficiency and accuracy of your automated test execution. 🕛 

With SmartWait, you can reduce the amount of code dedicated to explicit/implicit waits in your Selenium test suite, making it easier to read and maintain.

SmartWait runs a series of actionability checks on a webpage element before any action is executed on it. It uses an intelligent algorithm that holds off on performing an action until all relevant checks have been successfully passed. SmartWait returns the relevant Selenium error message if the checks are not passed within a stipulated timeframe.

📕 To get started with SmartWait on LambdaTest, check out our documentation SmartWait functionality for Selenium testing.

Organize your tests using Build Inactivity Time

Hey folks 😀 

LambdaTest's Automation now supports Build Inactivity Time, also known as Build Splitting logic, which allows you to track your progress by identifying tests run at specific intervals. 

The Build Splitting logic lets you specify a time interval, after which the system will mark the build as complete after waiting for the specified period of time. As a result, if you run new builds after this time period, they will be created as new builds.

 📕  For more details, visit the documentation - Setting Up the Build Inactivity Time

Here are some additional enhancements to LambdaTest Automation 👇 

  • The Live Interaction feature is now supported on macOS - Monterey and Ventura.
  • Newly added Lambda Hooks to interpret test results: skipped, ignored, unknown, and, error.
