BrowserStack Acquires Percy to Add Visual Testing to Their Platform

This acquisition enables developers and QA teams to run visual and functional tests on a single platform.

SAN FRANCISCO — July 9, 2020 — BrowserStack, the world’s leading web and mobile app testing platform, today announced the acquisition of Percy, the leading visual testing and review platform. With this acquisition, developers and quality assurance (QA) teams can run everything from visual tests to manual and automated functional tests on BrowserStack’s infrastructure and ship high-quality software at speed.

Today, agile teams deploy code to production hundreds of times a day. Maintaining this release velocity without introducing visual bugs is close to impossible. Percy helps teams automate visual testing by capturing screenshots and comparing them against the baseline, and highlighting visual changes. With increased visual coverage, teams can deploy code changes with confidence with every commit.

“This acquisition moves us closer to our vision of becoming the testing infrastructure of the internet,” said Ritesh Arora, co-founder and CEO of BrowserStack. “As we expand the capabilities of our platform, developers can rely on BrowserStack for all their testing needs and focus on doing what they do best—creating amazing experiences.”

Developers can start using Percy right away in their BrowserStack account.

“We’re thrilled to be part of BrowserStack and bring Percy’s visual testing experience to a whole new group of customers,” said Mike Fotinakis, co-founder and CEO of Percy. “We have a rich history working with amazing teams at Google, Basecamp, Canva and Shopify, among others, helping them gain confidence to build visually stunning applications. Becoming part of BrowserStack gives visual testing across the industry a major boost, and we’re excited for all the new opportunities this will unlock.”
