August was a super-exciting month for the entire team at LambdaTest. We successfully hosted our first ever online summit – Testµ Conference 2022 and commemorating LambdaTest’s fifth anniversary.

Hold on a second! August is more than just that, though! We release numerous features in automation testing, app test automation, HyperExecute, smart visual regression testing, and much more.

Here is a monthly summary of what’s new at LambdaTest in August.

Introducing HyperExecute at the Microsoft Azure Marketplace!

Our blazing fast test orchestration cloud – HyperExecute supports all programming languages and popular test automation frameworks. To perform end-to-end automation tests as quickly as possible, testers and developers can use our HyperExecute. It is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Now that the productive and dependable Azure platform is available, testers and developers can deploy and manage their cloud apps. Customers may now benefit from the streamlined deployment and maintenance of the reliable and effective Azure cloud platform.

We are one step closer to helping the QA & developer communities ship code at lightning speed.

The advancement of automation is fascinating. Updates to browsers and new features for creating desired capabilities are all included in the most current edition.

Below is a list of the new automation testing features.
