Simulate GPS location

GPS Geolocation testing enables you to simulate the location of the device to specific GPS coordinates in order to test location-based scenarios for your app.

In order to specify the GPS coordinates, you need to set the gpsLocation parameter in the REST API request to start Espresso test execution. You will be required to pass the latitude and longitude of the desired location.

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/v2/build
Parameter Description Value
gpsLocation Simulate the location of the device to a specific GPS location. Latitude followed by longitude
Acceptable range for latitude is -90 to +90 and for longitude is -180 to +180.
Example: 40.730610,-73.935242

Example:

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" \
-X POST "https://api-cloud.browserstack.com/app-automate/espresso/v2/build" \
-d '{"gpsLocation": "40.730610,-73.935242", "devices": ["Samsung Galaxy S8-7.0"], "app": "bs://f7c874f21852ba57957a3fdc33f47514288c4ba4", "testSuite": "bs://e994db8333e32a5863938666c3c3491e778352ff"}' \
