Introducing New App Automation Features – Available Now

LambdaTest App Automation has just shipped new features that make it easier than ever to build, test, and deploy quality mobile apps. 🚀 

Take a look 👇 

📌 New Lambda Hook to help you differentiate between multiple test cases within a single Appium session. This feature aims to improve debugging capabilities, making it easier to identify which test cases may be causing errors or taking longer to execute.

📌 See highlighted elements in both live and saved videos when using the findElement method for Appium testing. This can help you to easily identify which elements your script is interacting with during test execution and to review saved videos to understand how your tests performed and interacted with the elements.

To use this feature, your organization must have instrumentation enabled. You also need to add the instrumented: true capability to your test script.

📌 Live video support for web automation on real devices that provides real-time video feedback as your web automation scripts execute on real Android and iOS devices. This can help you to identify issues more easily, improve the quality of your testing, and validate the user experience directly.
