Geolocation testing

App Live enables you to test your app for location based scenarios by simulating GPS or IP location based location changes on remote BrowserStack devices.

Test your app using different locations

All BrowserStack remote devices have GPS enabled, and you can simulate GPS location to test your app in different locations.

To test your app by simulating GPS based location changes:

  1. Log in to the App Live dashboard.
  2. Upload or install your app, and select the device from the device listing, to launch your test session.
  3. On the App Live vertical toolbar, click Change Location.
  4. On the Change Location prompt, click the Device GPS tab, enter the address or specify the latitude and longitude of the location you want, and click Yes to confirm the location. Set location using GPS

You see a message on the dashboard that the selected location is simulated on the remote device.

To test your app by simulating IP based location changes:

  1. Log in to the App Live dashboard.
  2. Upload or install your app, and select the device from the device listing, to launch your test session.
  3. On the App Live vertical toolbar, click Change Location.
  4. On the Change Location prompt, click the IP Location tab, select the country/state, and click Yes to confirm the IP location. Set location using GPS

You see a message on the dashboard that the selected IP location is simulated on the device.

Important: If you have enabled local testing for your App Live test session, changing IP location disables local testing. To enable local testing, set the IP location to None.
