Frequently Asked Questions

Why is testing your website and app on Google Pixel devices critical?

In 2018, Google entered the top five premium smartphone brands in Western Europe. Additionally, Google Pixel was the fastest-growing major smartphone brand in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2018. In 2019, Google outsold OnePlus with 7.2 million Pixel smartphones shipped.

As these numbers depict, Google Pixel devices are gaining ground in the mobile device market. Consequently, it is safe to assume that a fair number of people accessing any website or app will be doing so via a Google Pixel device.

In order to ensure that a software product can reach the broadest possible number of users, it should be optimized for perfect functionality on as many devices as possible. With Google Pixel’s rising star in the device market, software must be optimized for compatibility for Google Pixel devices. This makes testing your website and app on Google Pixel devices critical. 

What is the Google Pixel emulator?

A Google Pixel emulator simulates the functions of a Google Pixel device on the developer or tester’s computer. This enables them to test an application on multiple Google Pixel devices without accessing each physical device. 

Why do developers opt for Google Pixel emulators?

Using Google Pixel emulators is an easy, quick, and relatively inexpensive way to run rudimentary tests on Google Pixel devices. It is also convenient because they can accomplish all their functions on their computer without having to arrange for the usage of real Google Pixel devices.

What are the disadvantages of using a Google Pixel Emulator?

Google Pixel emulators absolutely do not replicate real Google Pixel devices in their entirety. Features like low battery, unstable network, incoming calls cannot be reliably replicated on a Pixel emulator. Furthermore, most emulators take significant time and money to set up.

Furthermore, every new Google Pixel device released into the market will not necessarily have a corresponding emulator. An emulator for the latest device may take months to be created and become available. So anyone looking to test their software on the latest Google Pixel device will either have to wait that long to run tests, or run tests on emulators for older Pixel devices.

None of those options are viable in the current digital market. Testing on Pixel emulators leads to the release of bug-ridden sites and apps because emulator tests do nothing to provide real user conditions. Therefore, any results from emulator tests are, at best, inaccurate and unreliable.

Why should one opt for BrowserStack’s real device cloud for Google Pixel testing?

As mentioned earlier, emulators are not adequate to run accurate Google Pixel tests. They provide unreliable tests and cause delays because tests will have to be run on real Pixel devices anyway.

So, instead of looking for “pixel 3 emulator” or “google pixel 3 emulator” online, testers and QAs can simply use BrowserStack which provides a real device cloud for testing purposes. This means that testers can access real Google Pixel devices on the cloud for manual testing and automation testing.

QAs can test websites manually or automate them via Selenium or Cypress. They can also conduct mobile app testing and automated app testing on real Google Pixel phones via Appium and Espresso. The BrowserStack cloud also provides integration with numerous CI/CD, project management, app distribution, build, and deployment tools. All of this accelerates and simplifies testing to provide accurate results in shortened timelines.

Testers can just sign up on BrowserStack, choose the Google Pixel devices they require, and start running testing for free.
