This update is primarily focused on the addition of iOS 14.5 for live-interactive testing, latest browsers, advanced features in LT Browser, newly launched certifications, and enhancements along with new functionalities that we have across different LambdaTest products.

Let’s check out the latest features and enhancements!

Addition Of ‘Test Preferences’ in Real Time Testing

Earlier, users had to repeatedly set test preferences like Geolocation, Time Zone, Keyboard, and iOS DevTools inside the VM for every test session. In our latest release, we have added a ‘Test Preferences’ section for Real Time Testing to avoid the pain points of reselecting the test preferences for each test session.

To select the chosen Test Preferences as the default one, you need to visit your LambdaTest Profile and navigate to the Preferences tab. You can now set the test preferences like Geolocation, Time Zone, Keyboard & iOS DevTools as per your requirements.

Test Preferences

Not only this, but you can also perform Localization Testing by setting the same configuration.

Perform Web Testing On The Latest Browsers!

Elevate your web testing experience and test your websites and web apps on newly added browsers. We have added new browsers in Real Time Testing, Screenshot Testing, and Automation Testing.

Here’s a list of all the browsers and browser versions we have added to our platform in August.

You can generate the Selenium automation capabilities for the new browser versions from the LambdaTest Desired Capability Generator.

New Desired Capability In Automation And Enhancements

Data security is of prime importance as far as cloud testing is concerned. To ensure a secure automation testing experience, we have added two Selenium capabilities to hide Command logs and Selenium/Appium logs.

  1. To hide Command logs, you will need to pass the commandLog capability.

  2. To hide Selenium and Appium logs, you will need to pass the systemLog capability.

  3. We have also added a LT:options capability to support W3C guidelines.

In addition, we have fixed some user interface and performance-related issues, improved Cypress UI logs, and reduced the machine allocation load time by 70%.

New Advanced Features In LT Browser

Your favorite mobile-friendly checker tool – LT Browser, is now equipped with a new bunch of features and enhancements.

Here are the newly added features and enhancements in the LT Browser.

  1. Select the location for media file downloads: You can select the location to save your media files. Just click on the Download button, select the desired location, and download the media files.
  2. Download Media Files On Cloud Or Local System: You can download the media files on the cloud (not available for freemium users after 14 days) or to your local system (available for both premium and freemium users).
  3. Media Pagination: Earlier, the LT Browser Media tab showed only ten screenshots and fifty videos. There was no option to view additional images and videos. We’ve added a Load More button that allows you to view more media files to address this issue.
  4. Autofill Feature In The URL Search Bar: You will get relevant suggestions while entering your search query with the autofill feature.
  5. Mark And Share Bug Report: You can now mark and share bug reports that contain one or more errors. You will need an email account to share the error reports with your colleagues.
