Frequently Asked Questions
Can Selenium be used for Android Testing?
Selenium can be used for automated testing of websites on a wide range of Android devices. Android Testing with Selenium is absolutely mandatory for Android developers and QAs because every website must be able to function perfectly on all Android devices.
It is important to test websites on real browsers running on real Android devices. This is the only way to ensure that the website functions perfectly, regardless of which device a user is using to access it.
Can I test an Android app as well as a website on an Android device?
It is possible to test Android apps, as well as test websites on Android devices. However, different tools are required for testing apps and websites. In order to test websites, use automated Selenium testing on real Android devices.
To test Android apps, use automated app testing with Appium. As with Selenium testing, BrowserStack offers the infrastructure for cloud-based manual and automated app testing on real Android and iOS devices.
