With various combinations of devices and OS variants, Android presents extraordinary difficulties as far as application testing goes. It is no longer conceivable to test an application on a single device and Android version, and expect that it will keep running with unwavering quality on all other potential hardware and OS blends. Firebase Test Lab makes a huge step towards tending to this issue by giving a testing platform that permits applications to be tested using a large number of device setups.

Firebase Test Lab helps developers to test the application with a wide range of cloud-based device infrastructure. Be it Android or iOS, you can test your application...
