Introducing Android Beta!

  • Android support is now available as Beta for all customers. If you would like to opt in to the Android Beta, please contact us so that this can be added to your account
  • Android appears as a second tab in each of the following screens
    • Builds
    • Step Groups
    • Scenarios
    • Test Plans
  • In order to use Android, you will need to ensure you switch to the Android tab in the appropriate screen before beginning. Otherwise uploading builds, creating tests and creating test plans follows the same pattern as iOS.
  • Android test results are displayed alongside iOS test results in the Test Results page
  • As Android is still in Beta, there are some functions missing from Android that are available in iOS including:
    • Assertion in Android is ML Assertion only
    • Test Cancellation
    • Set Deeplink

Introducing Machine Learning Tap (ML Tap) Beta!

  • ML Tap is now available as Beta!
  • ML Tap uses Machine Learning to analyze a screenshot to determine the element that was tapped during recording, and makes it easy to correct the tapped element in the scenario editor
  • ML Tap offers performance improvements over the Page Source based tap
  • In order to learn more about ML Tap, please see HERE

💎 Improvements

  • Sorting has now been implemented in the Test Results table both when showing by Test Plan and by Scenario
  • The input speed of “Input Text” steps can now be adjusted from the Scenario Editor to help improve consistency when executing these steps.
    • This functionality is best used when an Input Text step sometimes returns characters in the wrong order
  • The status returned by the Test Results API for a test plan is now “Failed” if any of the test cases in the test plan failed.

🐞 Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the screenshot resolution was different between recording and execution sometimes causing unexpected failures
  • Fixed an issue where HTML would sometimes be shown as part of the step name when editing scenarios
  • Fixed an issue where Replay did not correctly respect “When this step fails” settings
  • Fixed an issue where the ML Assertion window was too big and could be difficult to close
  • Fixed various issues affecting Android emulator stability
  • Fixed an issue where the Environment Variables were sometimes not all displayed during recording
  • Improved ML Tap consistency when tapping on Text
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause unexpected test failures after an ML Assertion step was deleted
