We haven't gotten to that part yet, I think our developers are not yet using the cloud device services, it's more on our regression and validation testing side of things. So I would say the real benefits are being reaped by the QA team, not so much the devs. There are rare instances where …

  • 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

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

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.

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)

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BrowserStack addresses is the need to ensure that websites and apps work properly on a variety of different devices and browsers. With the increasing number of devices and browsers in use today, it can be difficult and time-consuming for developers to test their projects on every possible combination. BrowserStack allows developers to automate this process and quickly identify and fix any compatibility issues.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
