I feel that the automated screenshot testing takes a little longer on MacOS sometimes. Though the stability is good, cloud platforms are a bit slower. The platform provides good emulators and simulators but in the future, there will be a need for testing on real devices. This would be a good addition to future rollouts. Though the dashboard is clean, there is room for test analytics to get a qualitative glance at results. Some suggestions on testing will definitely help a newbie working with the platform.

Though the platform does well in almost every aspect for us, there are a couple of things they can do to give it an absolute edge. * Dashboard Analytics: It would be much easier for us to read the test if they provided dashboard analytics. Though I haven't seen it in this category, I feel this feature can take the platform to another level. * Real Devices: LambdaTest has almost all of the emulators and they are good for the most part, but I can see as we grow that we will need real devices. I hope they catch up with that as well.

LambdaTest needs to have native application testing, which would be a great help to my team. We have requested this feature from the support team but it's yet to be implemented. We would also like to see more devices for screenshot testing.

If possible to simulate the finger pinch, it would make it more realistic. We had some speed issues while taking the screenshots, for which I got in touch with the support team. I think that this will be looked upon now.

Mobile application testing will be an added benefit for us if LambdaTest implements this really soon. I would also like to test on real devices, and we have communicated the same to their support team.

Their smart testing module needs improvement. We also hope they could come up with some API for automated visual regression testing. One more thing is that it would be good to see if Lambdatest can get real devices to test for mobile automation. I think these features and improvements will be a robust fix to the product.

You cannot perform native-app testing, as they offer simulation for web testing only. However, from what I have heard, they are promising to go live with it shortly.

Responsive testing UI is a bit cluttered, whereas the LT browser is much better to use. We had a few slugs in the early stage of implementation while running parallel tests; however, the support team was helpful in resolving it.

Analytics could be better because as of now, it gives basic information on test status and build status. It would be better if I could analyze groups of tests that are taking a long time to complete, to pin-point use cases which could lead to slowness in the user journey. It would be nice to have an API for visual regression testing.

I think Lambdatest is a valuable tool for our team and things that have room for improvement would be mobile app testing, as it can be an important addition to the tool. It would be a good package for Lambdatest!

The analytics over the automation dashboard can be more intuitive. The good part is that we have relayed some of our suggestions to the support and as per their support team, those suggestions are to be considered as a part of their upcoming sprint, so we look forward to seeing them onboard soon.

For us, Cypress! It looks like the support for Cypress is not there. The tech support guys say it would be there in a few months, but let's see. Mobile application testing would be helpful for us. We have been asking the support team for this feature but it's yet to be implemented. We would also like to see more devices for screenshot testing. There is a latency in a single test when compared to a local machine. Maybe because of the cloud? So, you have to run in parallel to cut down on testing times.

I did face some minor issues, but after talking with their customer support, they took it as a priority and got it resolved. So I am happy and want to see more features they could add in future.

We were in the middle of launching a new website and being new to all of these things, I called a friend to ask if there is any step I need to do before making it live. He suggested that I should make my website responsive, and after I understood what he meant, I started to look for tools that can help me with testing my website for responsiveness. After a brief Google search, I landed on LambdaTest and the best part was that they also offered a Freemium plan that includes a good amount of minutes for responsivity testing. I selected the combination that we thought our users will mostly use and ran the tests. To our surprise, our website indeed was not responsive. I took screenshots and showed it to my developer and asked it to be fixed for a seamless experience. I am really glad that there are tools like LambdaTest that help freelancers like me to make sure everything is okay before finally making a website live.

Using LambdaTest automation has allowed us to run all of our functionality tests suits across multiple browsers and OS. It has helped us identify UI misalignment specific to browsers or functionality failure due to incompatibility with a particular browser. The good part is that you can automate screenshots and get insights into where and which browser your website’s UI is going off. Then, we can use the live feature to identify and debug the compatibility issue. We strongly believe customer experience is the key and that could impede your product growth. With LambdaTest, we could see improvements in identifying errors before our customer does.
