Record your App Live test session

App Live enables you to record videos of your test session on remote BrowserStack devices, for different use cases such as documenting the procedure to reproduce a bug, demonstrating that a feature is working properly after bug fixing, creating demo videos, etc.

Record your session

Prerequisite:
If you are using a Mac system to record your App Live test session, you must enable screen recording access for your browser, as defined in Apple documentation.

Note: You can record a video of the test session for up to 20 minutes.

To record your session:

  1. Log in to the App Live dashboard.
  2. Upload or install your app and select your device from the device listing, to launch your test session.
  3. On the App Live horizontal toolbar, click Record Session. Click Record Session
  4. Select any of the following and click Share to start recording your session:
    • Entire Screen, to record the contents of the screen.
    • Window, to record the contents of a window.
    • Browser, to record the contents of your browser. Choose what to share prompt
  5. On the App Live horizontal toolbar, click End Recording to stop recording.
  6. Click Download on the prompt to download the video of your session recording. The video is downloaded in the .mp4 format to your browser.
Note: If you discard the video, you cannot retrieve it later, as your video is permanently deleted and is not saved on any BrowserStack device or server.
