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.

Sharding for Espresso Testing
LambdaTest App Automation now supports running Espresso tests via HyperExecute on real devices. Using this feature, you can speed up your testing cycles by splitting the Espresso test cases into shards and running them in parallel to save time while running other Espresso tests.
For more details, please refer to our support document - Sharding for Espresso.
Background Services in HyperExecute
Background Services in HyperExecute serve as a functionality primarily employed for running extended-duration Application Servers. Triggering these background services can be achieved through background or backgroundDirectives attributе within thе HyperExecute YAML configuration filе.
Refer to our getting started guide - Background Services in HyperExecute.
SmartUI Testing for PDF Files
We now support visual regression testing of PDF files that intelligently analyzes the visual content and structure of a PDF document and perform tests to ensure its correctness, readability, and layout consistency.
To begin PDF testing, check out the documentation - SmartUI Testing for PDF Files.

Real Time Browser Testing
📌 You can now perform real time testing on macOS Sonoma exclusively on the LambdaTest platform and ensure a quality web experience with this cutting-edge macOS update. Test your websites and web applications right away across various real browsers running real macOS Sonoma.
📌 Now test your mobile web & native apps on Android 14 (Beta) on real Android devices and ensure your mobile applications are fully optimized and ready to excel on Android 14.
📌 For App Automation, we have made a few enhancements in the network logs functionality to provide you with better visibility and control. Some enhancements include advanced search and filter operations on the network logs, improved usability, and download network logs in
📌 LambdaTest has now integrated with Airbrake, a bug-monitoring and tracking tool that lets you effortlessly track and monitor bugs while performing cross browser testing directly from the LambdaTest platform to your Airbrake instance, eliminating the need for manual maintenance of tasks and issues.
To use this integration, check out the documentation - Airbrake Integration with LambdaTest
Google Lighthouse Report for Playwright Testing 💈
You can now view the Lighthouse Performance Metrics while running Playwright tests on the LambdaTest cloud. By generating the Lighthouse report, you can view the following performance metrics:
Currently, LambdaTest supports Lighthouse Audits on Chrome, Edge, and Chromium browsers.
Refer to documentation: View Lighthouse Performance Metrics for Playwright.
Identify and Highlight CDP Errors in Command Logs ❄
Now you can identify failed command logs at a glance on the LambdaTest Automation Dashboard, allowing you to highlight error command logs instantly. For Playwright, Puppeteer, Taiko, and K6 tests, you can view both the passed and failed status of command logs. This feature makes troubleshooting and debugging easier, as you are able to pinpoint the specific command that caused the error.
Introducing Max Duration for Test Session Timeout 🔴
For Cypress tests, you can specify a maximum time limit for the test to execute before it is automatically stopped, thus freeing up resources for other tests to execute. Please refer to the documentation Max Duration for Test Session Timeout.
Support for Regular Expression in Playwright Android Testing 🎭
There may be instances in which the selected device is unavailable when conducting tests on LambdaTest. As a result, Regular Expression (REGEX) comes in handy by expanding the search criteria in order to find alternative devices for testing.
We have now enabled the support for Regular Expression to fetch device names that are available for Playwright testing on Android devices.
For more details, check the documentation Capabilities for Playwright Android Testing.
Disable Screenshot Block for Android Testing 📱
LambdaTеst now provides Disable Screenshot Block feature (in Beta) for real Android devices, providing a valuablе solution for mobile app tеsting when dealing with applications that imposе rеstrictions on taking scrееnshots.
With this feature, you can disablе thе scrееnshot block for Android dеvicеs and perform tеsting without еncountеring any disruptions likе black scrееns or missеd scrееnshots duе to thе app's inhеrеnt propеrtiеs.
Disable Screenshot Block is supported in Real Time App Testing and App Automation.
Refer to the documentation Disable Screenshot Block for Android.
