The product on which we are working have to support multiple devices and browser. BrowserStack provides a wide range of devices and browser will almost all versions. We are using BrowserStack for Local testing, Manual testing as well as to run our automation script on daily basis. We need to test out code locally before deploying it on any environment, so Local testing came in handy for this.
  • Local testing
  • Multi device and browser support
  • Automation execution on multiple devices
  • Actual device experience
  • Internationalization and localization testing support can be improved
  • Support to copy any text and content from device.
  • Advanced developer tool to help debugging any issue
  • For multi-device and multi-browser testing it is best available platform. It provide actual device experience instead of browser simulation that increase confidence of product quality.
  • Automation report has video recording that actually helped us to find out issue in application/script easily.
  • It lacks in Multi-culture testing as there is restriction to change device region and timezone

My job as a quality assurance engineer requires me to run functional tests on different electronic devices and operating systems. With BrowserStack, I get access to all devices I need without purchasing a physical one. It makes work less stressful and supports my automated test scripts. I can also run tests on different versions of windows and mac operating systems without having to install them on a real device. This is very convenient for my work
  • Easy access to different mobile and laptop devices
  • Supports automated test scripts
  • Supports testing on different browsers and operating systems
  • Sometimes there is a lag in device response time, which should be improved.
  • Connecting to the device in the cloud sometimes takes a little bit of time
BrowserStack is very helpful when I test software on different devices. I do not need to carry several physical devices to work. I can access everything on BrowserStack. However, testing software on BrowserStack devices is sometimes not convenient as there is a delay in response time. For example, I can scroll on an iPhone, and the scroll happens after two or three seconds. I think the team should work on this to improve it

Helps in multibrowser automation execution. The main problem is to have a infrastructure that can run several automation test cases at the same time, in different browsers and versions
  • load balancer
  • parallel execution
  • integration
  • set parameters easier to set up
  • documentation
  • seminars
It is really good to run several test cases concurrently, without having to think about the infrastructure. Sometimes you implement other technologies, as Selenium grid, but it is buggy and difficult to debug. It is easier to implement with BrowserStack

As a Test automation lead, we were looking for a tool for a rapid test automation development for Mobile test cases which support our automation framework and should be less maintainable in terms of environment creation so we don't need to worry about drivers and inspectors for our locator strategies. Also, BS helped us in quick development of test scenarios and its execution withing a short duration for mobile test automation creation. For me and my team, we do have conversations with BS team for any queries/suggestions/pocs and i appreciate their help providing us quick solutions for our problems.
  • Support/Helpdesk team is really helpful
  • Precise documentation
  • Availability of latest devices and platform
  • Daily summary reports for our test project execution
  • Documentation to be updated with latest versions of tools
  • Support engineers for languages other than JAVA, Python (specifically ruby)
  • Enterprise features to be available for usage - (IP / Location set for mobile)
As a test automation lead/framework dev,
I would highly recommend BS to team members, as it helped us rapidly build test scenarios for 500+ scenarios.
Its support team is doing well and are available via chat or email
It also has new devices/os platforms available on daily basis.

At Nozzha Academy we need to make sure our website is working properly across different browsers and devices. Using BrowserStack helps us to identify issues early (especially in the Safari browser) and helps us fix them with ease using local testing (which is a great feature from BrowserStack that speeds up the development).
  • Identify if css styles working properly on Safari
  • Helps fixing and debugging issues fast using local-testing (which is a great feature that other providers in this industry don't provide)
  • Make sure some scripts are working fine with different browsers
  • Add Firefox for iOS devices (as Safari and Chrome isn't always enough, I know some issues that happens on Firefox only and not happen on Safari iOS) but I couldn't identify them earlier because there isn't Firefox support for iOS from BrowserStack.
  • Make DOM manipulating for mobiles using the DevTools working properly (as sometimes whenever I edit some DOM it breaks all the DOM instead of just editing a specific part)
  • Make changing location available for Solo plan (as sometimes I want to test network latency for example) but I couldn't because Geolocation isn't part of Solo plan (and the Team plan is too expansive for me)
What makes BrowserStack number one when compared to other platforms is Real Devices instead of virtual ones and these devices are very fast (besides local testing which makes debugging issues for different devices easier and faster)

It is commonly used by my company to ensure that websites and applications are compatible and functioning properly across different browsers and devices. this ensures that our website and apps are accessible to the widest possible audience, by allowing developers to test on a variety of different browsers and devices. This helps us to identify and fix compatibility issues.
  • Cross-browser testing
  • Real-time debugging
  • Screenshot and video recording
  • Integration with popular dev tools such as Selenium
  • User interface is difficult for navigating
  • It has limited support for the old operating systems
  • Limited support for mobile and desktop apps
  • It is quite expensive
The cross-browser testing and also remote testing ability is something that help me to test my web applications and really made my life easier!
Something which was a disappointment for me was the limited support for both old browsers and OS versions! Also something that made me to give 7 out of 10 is the price and cos! As a solo user is a bit high!

We have multiple websites in different languages, and we need to test both functionality and translations across sites for all browsers and platforms/devices. We use BrowserStack to ensure that everything works as expected and that the customer experience is maintained. BrowserStack is also used to fault find as it allows us to emulate user platforms and test.
  • Emulates Browsers / OS.
  • Localises Browser.
  • Increase the timeout periods.
  • Allow multiple browsers to be open at one time in a session.
  • Provide an option to have pre-set configurations.
Once you are up and running in a session that is configured as required it is easy to test as if in a native browser, it would be useful to be able to have multiple browsers open in one session to avoid having to reload within the same OS emulation.

We are using BrowserStack for testing mobile devices without needing to have real mobile devices.
BrowserStack helps with a large pool of real / virtual mobile devices, and also computer OS'es, making it easier to test at the distance of a click.
The application it's easy to use, and it also have multiple features and plans for Automation Testing, which is a big plus.
It has an easy to get starting tutorial, and it can be accessible for everyone in need.
  • Test on multiple real mobile devices
  • Have access at different OS versions (both mobile and computers)
  • Integrate BrowserStack with QA Automation
  • I haven't found an option to have a set of bookmarks deployed on each device when using the device, would be helpful to have this feature
  • I haven't found an option / configuration to set a preferred resolution size to be used all the times when using a specific device
BrowserStack is well suited for both following scenarios:
  • Test a web application, BrowserStack giving the option to use real mobile devices, and also real computer browsers, the user not needing to have at hand real devices, and relying on the large pool provided by BrowserStack at the distance of a click.
  • Test mobile applications and install them on real mobile devices, being able to catch bugs easier and testing the application on a large pool of devices, which would be almost impossible to have that many devices at hand to test. Also, the Automation plans are a big plus, being able to test web-applications / native applications on multiple devices.

BrowserStack is our tool of choice for all our compatibility testing. Our team uses it as part of our verification process and has even recommended its use to our clients for continuity. We do our mobile application testing on App live and our web application testing on Live. The devices and OS are always up to date, and feature use/access is fairly straightforward. Looking forward to exploring this tool further as we evolve our test process and use different parameters. We recently added a beta feature to one of our accounts after a representative's recommendation and are happy to say it was easy to implement and allowed us to successfully continue our testing with little delay. Their customer service is relatively timely, often engaging in issue-resolving dialogue within hours of initial contact. I hope to see more integrations with their products and other distribution software; we recently switched to Bitrise, which is not directly unavailable via App Live (it is available on their automated tools), like App Center. Overall our test team is satisfied with the products we've chosen, and this tool has become integrated into our test process. Special thanks to the representatives for answering our inquiries and offering straightforward solutions!
  • Quick and effective responses.
  • Current device and OS updates.
  • Diverse Browsers, OS's and devices.
  • Integration of Bitrise with App live.
Any device or browser compatibility testing.

I don't have positive reviews of BrowserStack. I have used testing for real browser dependencies for WebKit, Feels hard to see responsiveness on multiple devices quickly on my current plan, need to wait a lot for starting and boot up device actual devices and browsers, as well as to its there is a delay for input. The team has pointed BrowserStack is extremely priced, especially for solo users or small organizations. Additionally, a few users have mentioned that the platform occasionally has errors or problems.
  • Have Many real devices, but not all!
  • Give accurate result how site will look on real device.
  • Delay for inputs like clicking and all stuff.
  • Add some more devices like I was searching for mi 11 lite but cant find.
  • Should be able to see responsiveness in parallel at least 3-4 devices to save time.
It is well suited for specific device testing needs. But you can't test it like on every device. It will consume a lot of time just to open the device. Also, it just opens one device at a time. We need to add more devices. Need to give some custom Plans with the little less pricing current one is not very good for solo or startups.

I have been using BrowserStack for the past couple of months for both mobile and web testing. It has been a life changer because it has helped me expedite my cross-browser testing needs. I have used most of the mobile settings within the application and it's awesome. It really helps me with the device and cross-browser testing coverage. The automation support on multiple simultaneous runs is very good and easy to use. I highly recommend any software team adopt this software for testing.
  • Provide a wide array of mobile testing.
  • Provide a array of cross browser testing.
  • Easy to learn and use.
  • needs better image quality on videos played through Browserstack.
  • Inspection mode for spying metadata.
  • Sometimes a bit slow.
Software teams should use BrowserStack to emulate different browsers for testing. I develop apps for the web, and It is very useful. For example, I know when an app works on one operating system or another and locates problems between multiple different systems. A lot of teams have a lot of compatibility problems, I suggest getting BrowserStack a try to simplify testing.

Working in web can be hard due to the sheer amount of devices out there - all with their own features, quirks and specifications. BrowserStack aims to bridge the gap between developers and the ever growing world of smartphones, tablets and desktop devices. A big challenge we find is that, for example, iOS testing can only be done on a Mac - with BrowserStack, a Windows-based developer finally has the tools to test their sites and apps all within a website.
  • Device testing
  • App testing
  • Automated testing
  • Cheaper pricing compared to competitors
  • Offering more in-depth trials
  • Offering a much wider array of older devices.
Developers are fussy, like, really fussy at times. A development team with everyone on the same tool-set is hard to find unless enforced. Some prefer macOS, Ubuntu, Windows etc. and BrowserStack bridges that gap where a developer cannot test on iOS devices or even Android devices. It provides full tools and dev tools.

BrowserStack is a comprehensive test automation tool that allows users to easily test their websites and mobile applications across a wide range of browsers and devices. The platform provides a robust and user-friendly interface that makes it easy for developers to create and execute automated tests for their projects.One of the key features of BrowserStack is its ability to test on a wide variety of mobile devices and operating systems, including iOS and Android. This has been extremely helpful for our team, as it has allowed us to quickly and easily identify and fix issues that may only occur on specific devices.In addition to mobile testing, BrowserStack also offers testing on various browsers and operating systems, making it a versatile tool for any development team. The platform also allows users to run parallel tests, which greatly speeds up the testing process.Overall, we have found BrowserStack to be a valuable tool for our team's mobile test automation efforts. The platform's wide range of devices and browsers, along with its user-friendly interface, make it easy for us to quickly identify and fix issues in our mobile applications.
  • Mobile test automation
  • User management
  • Technical help
  • Response time
Based on my experience, BrowserStack is well-suited for the following scenarios:Cross-browser and cross-device testing: The platform supports a wide range of browsers and devices, making it an ideal tool for testing websites and mobile applications on different environments.Parallel testing: BrowserStack allows users to run multiple tests simultaneously, which can greatly speed up the testing process and save time.Mobile testing: The platform provides a wide range of mobile devices and operating systems, making it easy for developers to test and debug mobile applications.Testing in real-world conditions: BrowserStack allows developers to test their applications in real-world conditions, by simulating different network speeds, geolocation, and more.In terms of scenarios where BrowserStack may be less appropriate, I would say that:Performance testing: While BrowserStack allows developers to test their applications in real-world conditions, it is not specifically designed for performance testing.Complex testing scenarios: For complex testing scenarios, such as load testing or security testing, specialized tools may be more appropriate.Large scale testing: If you need to test a large number of test cases in a short time, you may require specialized testing tools that can handle large scale testing, such as test automation frameworks.Overall, BrowserStack is a powerful tool that can help developers test their applications across a wide range of browsers and devices. However, it may not be the best choice for some specific testing scenarios.

I am using BrowserStack to test my open-source software on devices I do not own. This helps me to address compatibility issues and maintain the expected level of quality over a broad range of operating systems and vendors.
  • Speedy and competent support
  • Have a broad range of devices to test on
  • Good integration of reporting tools
  • Audio is sometimes missing
  • An online non-device keyboard would be helpful to test specific key combinations
It's a great tool to test a website or web app in various environments you can not provide on-premises. It's quite expensive though. Note, however, that they have a free plan for open-source developers.

I use it to emulate different browsers for my work, I develop apps for the web, and It is very useful. For example, I can know when an app works on one operating system or another and locate problems between multiple different systems. My website was having a lot of compatibility problems before getting BrowserStack and it has helped me since.
  • Emulation of different browsers on different systems.
  • Not much lag when just using browser.
  • Quality of service.
  • More app support.
  • Better image quality on videos played through the browserstack browser.
  • File transfer support to the guest os and back.
Browserstack is useful for a developer who develops multi-platform programs and does not have test rigs for operating systems like windows, mac os, and Linux. It is not appropriate for testing high-intensity applications like testing video games or cloud streaming services from the web browser. Otherwise, it is very useful.

Having multiple test devices to run our automated tests for our main mobile app product. Using the cloud devices to create automation scripts using Python and Javascript Appium frameworks. It helps us execute tests more efficiently and have a plethora of mobile devices available for test execution. Reduces the cost of maintaining and purchasing devices that we need to run the automation tests, also the cloud solutions provided by their product, so we can run tests, upload builds, and use test media files.
  • Cloud devices
  • Cloud services
  • Marketing and sales support
  • Documentation and technical support
  • Scope of technologies in the documentation
  • Technical specialist on follow-up calls/emails
  • GitHub Actions integration
From introduction to procurement they've been very helpful and patient, we were still looking through other tools but they kept the channel open and were attentive to our request. PoC for the product took long, and there wasn't any problem as long as we can determine that they were the right tool for the problems that we were experiencing. It could have been nice to have a technical support personnel from the beginning, but I think this can still be improved on. Documentations are still lacking of some existing tools that are compatible with them, but have no actual documentation on their site. I think demand is the issue, but I still hope they can accommodate it.

BrowserStack is also well suited for mobile application testing. It allows users to select from a wide range of mobile devices and operating systems and launch a virtual machine with the desired configuration. This makes it easy to test mobile applications on multiple devices and operating systems, ensuring that they are compatible with all of them and that they look and function correctly on each. However, there are some scenarios where BrowserStack is less appropriate. One such scenario is performance testing, as BrowserStack does not provide any tools or features for this. Performance testing involves testing a website or web application to ensure that it performs well under a variety of conditions, such as high traffic and slow internet connections. For this, users would need to use a different tool or platform.

I use BrowserStack as my daily Testing device, when a functionality has to be tested on a different screen size, platform, OS version BrowserStack provides an easy access to over 3000+ devices and the great thing is that the latest devices are available in the BrowserStack data centre and there is about 19 data centres, so the latency is very minimal. One of the cool feature is the image injection mechanism which helps in simulating the scanning mechanism. Also i use the BrowserStack to do the Test Automation, but when it comes to Android and iOS native Test Automation, BrowserStack does not support CI support. So one has to create a custom script to build jobs in the pipeline, but it has good support for integrating Selenium/Appium based Test automation framework. The documentation they provide is very helpful.
  • Image Injection mechanism
  • Great documentation and support
  • Biometric support
  • Various device vendor from Android like Huawei, Redmi, OnePlus, Oppo
  • Same device model available in various OS version
  • Accessibility support in Android
  • TestFlight support to download apps
  • Support for Native framework like Espresso and XcuiTest
  • Adding Foldable devices
  • Accessibility support for iOS devices
  • Allowing parallel device testing with same session
BrowserStack is well suited for the Test suite written using Selenium/Appium/RobotFramework and greater CI support. Also very much helpful for testing scanning of invoices feature as it supports Image injection mechanism. Also provides support to upload document.Also localhost support is a nice feature. Bit of challenging when using native framework as Android using Espresso framework does not provide multi gradle support meaning if your project repo has more than 1 gradle file then the test run cannot be triggered locally, So everytime the test suite and App has to be uploaded manually which is time consuming. And there is no support at all to trigger Xcuitest bases test run locally.

We use BrowserStack to test our web applications across multiple devices and multiple operating systems. Whether this be for local development or production systems.

It's tricky to test a variety of devices as you need to purchase many devices and maintain them, this in itself is a full time job. BrowserStack allows us to do this seamlessly from our own desktops and give us confidence in our products.
  • Test multiple devices
  • Test multiple operating systems
  • Test local applications
  • Mobile touch support
  • Improved element inspector
  • Pricing per user
It's great for simulating tests on local developments across your local web applications on your own device. As you have the ability to share your local environment with their simulated devices.

I find that it's not so great at emulating touch events on some devices. It can sometimes offer inaccurate behaviours, that would not be seen on the real device as a result of the emulation.

Testing various, but actually mainly one web application, checking for inconsistent rendering, interactive issues/bugs, and responsive UI design problems such as layout, colors, contrast, fonts, position, sizing/spacing, and graphics, etc. The products we produce are health orientated so accessibility, useability, presentation, reliability, and performance all contribute success in terms of sales, maintainability and customer retention.
  • Quick launch
  • Large catalogue of devices
  • Inspector
  • Code Inspector for all devices
  • Code inspector and be slow, unresponsive
  • Priority of most used devices / browsers based on stats
Suited to anyone creating web applications or websites. It's important to view content on a variety of screen sizes, scrolling, content proportions, display of data in tables, buttons/links are clickable, when to show/hide content. Not appropriate to check on every single device/browser, especially the older ones. It's up to Developers/Designers to discern what issues are worth solving and investing time in.

test new versions of software on different devices test new versions of software on different browsers and browser versions automate browser tests test on the latest and older devices and operating systems
  • automate simple browser tests
  • able to test on the latest devices on the market
  • able to record tests
  • able to remember past devices used
  • test multiple devices side by side for a more easier testing experience
  • get devices used more in the east and far east
Browserstack is well equipped with the devices and operating systems available to the user. Browstertack only lacks the use of a real life device in you hands, but its next best thing for a tester.
