Specify devices

You can run your Espresso automation tests on a wide range of Android devices on BrowserStack. These are not simulators or emulators but physical devices hosted in our data centers.

While executing your Espresso tests, you can specify a list of Android devices to run your tests on. In order to do so, you need to pass the devices parameter in the REST API request to start your test execution. You can set its value as shown in the table below.

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/v2/build
Parameter Description Values
devices Specify one or more devices to run tests on. This is required. List of device and OS versions to test on. Each value in the list follows this format : <devicename>-<os version>. Use the device selector below to see the value for your desired devices.
Select device
This device is not available in the free plan. Please upgrade to paid plan.

Look for the icon to select a real device.

 

You can easily execute your Espresso tests on multiple devices as shown in an example cURL request below :

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" \
-X POST "https://api-cloud.browserstack.com/app-automate/espresso/v2/build" \
-d '{"devices": ["Samsung Galaxy S8-7.0", "Google Pixel 2-9.0", "Samsung Galaxy Note 10-9.0"], "app": "bs://f7c874f21852ba57957a3fdc33f47514288c4ba4", "testSuite": "bs://e994db8333e32a5863938666c3c3491e778352ff"}' \
