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 …

We use BrowserStack to do web interface testing, microsite UI testing, etc. At the time of the deliverable of the project, we need time for doing testing on the user interface so that it should look the same on all different devices and browsers. I have done testing for real browser dependencies, but its a bit hard to see the result for all kinds of devices. Some devices are not available here and some device takes a long time to share the result.

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.

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

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.

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).

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

We use BrowserStack for testing our lane of apps on multiple platforms, such as desktops and cell phones. We can implement the same automation to check different behaviors in each phone to assist the QA team in catching BUGS and reassuring the quality of our product.

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.

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.

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.

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.
