Parallel testing

Test on multiple device-browser combinations simultaneously

Testing across multiple device-browser combinations sequentially could be cumbersome, repetitive, and time-consuming. To improve productivity, you can use the parallel testing feature of Live to run multiple test sessions of your websites or web apps simultaneously on different device-browser combinations.

Parallel testing is available under Team and Enterprise plans only. Also, parallel testing runs only on Google Chrome or Firefox browsers (this is the browser that you are using to access the Live session).

Parallel testing in action

Key benefits

  • Optimize testing time and increase browser-device coverage: You can test your website on two different device-browser combinations at the same time. This helps reduce the testing time and ensures that most of your end user’s environments are covered.
  • Test and compare against different configurations: You can configure different settings such as different locations or network conditions on both devices. You can then test and compare your website behavior against different configurations side-by-side.

Types of parallel testing

There are two types of parallel testing:

  • Single tab: You can test on up to two real devices simultaneously in a single browser tab.
  • Multiple tabs: You can test on up to two real devices simultaneously in two separate browser tabs.
