Testing on cloud devices

Developers and QA teams can test their applications on a wide range of devices and platforms without using physical devices via cloud device testing, a modern approach to mobile application testing.

A cloud-based infrastructure hosts several emulators or real devices remotely. Here is a list of the most popular cloud device testing for mobile apps:

  • Sauce Labs
  • BrowserStack
  • AWS Device Farm
  • Firebase Test Lab
  • LambdaTest
