Identify Current Browser Instance in App Automate

At runtime, how do I identify the browser instance for which the session is running?

You can now fetch the platform details at the run-time for the current test session. You need to call getCurrentPlatform function, which will return the browser details as declared in the yml file in a readable format. You can then manipulate the returned data object to perform specific browser manipulations.
