Applitools announced on 29th June 2021, the most breakthrough advancement in automated testing for native mobile apps in over a decade at the Future of Testing: Mobile event. Applitools showed off their Ultrafast Test Cloud for Native Mobile Test Automation, which uses its Visual AI-powered Ultrafast Test Cloud technology to conduct functional and visual tests quicker, more reliably, and securely.
Test Cloud for Native Mobile Test Automation
The new service enables teams to run automated tests on native mobile apps on a single device before instantaneously rendering them across any combination of mobile devices and tablets. Applitools initially debuted this unique technique last year, and the addition of native mobile app support provides improved reliability and stability that only Applitools Visual AI can provide.
“This is the first meaningful evolution of how to test native mobile apps for the software industry in a long time,” said Gil Sever, CEO, and co-founder of Applitools. “People are increasingly going to mobile for everything. One major area of improvement needed in delivering better mobile apps faster is centered around QA and testing. We’re building upon the success of Visual AI and the Ultrafast Test Cloud to make the delivery and execution of tests for native mobile apps more consistent and faster than ever and at a fraction of the cost.”
Features of Ultrafast Test Cloud:
- Fast, Reliable, and Secure – Users may conduct functional and visual tests locally using Ultrafast Test Cloud, and all screens are rendered instantly across all browsers, devices, and viewports. All of this is accomplished with unrivaled security, stability, and speed, and with no setup required.
- Supports Multiple Browsers – Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Internet Explorer are all supported by Ultrafast Grid. Safari for iOS provides advanced mobile web functionality for simulation on a variety of Apple devices. Chrome emulation is used to emulate Android devices.
- Testing Faster and with more Accuracy – Users’ Visual AI-powered automated tests will run 30-50 times faster and with 99.9999 percent accuracy with Applitools’ Ultrafast Test Cloud.
- No Inbound Connections are required – Because the Ultrafast Test Cloud does not require a reverse proxy or an IPSec VPN, it eliminates the danger of external factors that typical cross-browser testing solutions rely on.
“Mobile is becoming not only the new digital hub but also the bridge to the physical world,” said Thomas Husson, Vice President, and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. “That’s why mobile will affect more than just your digital operations — it will transform your entire business.”
