Hey Folks 👋🏻, Quite a few exciting updates are coming this month, from brand-new features to managing more complex workflows.
July was a fruitful month for us. We went live with the LT Debug Chrome extension to enable developers and testers to debug their web pages quickly and easily. Additionally, we launched a new browser – Brave, to perform browser compatibility testing of websites and web apps. XCUITest framework support has been added for app test automation.
And that’s not all…
Here is a monthly overview of everything that happened at LambdaTest during July. 📆

Latest features in Automation Testing
Automation is exciting, and it’s only getting better. The latest release has some additions around capabilities, the latest browsers, and the all-new desired capability generator.
The following is a list of the new automation testing features 👇
- To set the browser option for your Playwright, Puppeteer, and Taiko tests, we have added a new capability, browserOptions. This allows you to set browser options for the test via the browserOptions capability.
- You can now group your Cypress builds (executed on LambdaTest) on ReportPortal using CI_BUILD_ID.
- To make Desired Capability Generator more user-friendly, we have received countless valuable suggestions from our customers. We are pleased to announce that we have incorporated those suggestions and revamped our Automation Capability Generator to make it more efficient and user-friendly.
Test on Latest Browsers
You can now automate your web testing with the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Edge browsers. Shown below is the list of newly added browser versions
- Chrome 104 Beta [Windows only], 103
- Firefox 103 Beta, 102
- Edge 103 Beta
Let’s compare the cross browser compatibility of the latest versions between Chrome 104, Firefox 103, and Edge 103. 🌐
New Capabilities in Visual Regression Testing
With LambdaTest’s SmartUI, you can compare screenshots of your application’s web pages from two different browsers and detect any visual deviations. It enables you to run automation scripts on an online browser farm of 3000+ desktop and mobile environments, thereby expanding your browser coverage.
In Visual Regression testing, we have two new capabilities that let you name Screenshots and compare builds based on their names.
- Show Screenshot Name
- Compare Builds By Names
In addition, we also added support for comparing your Visual Regression test results with dynamic content on your website by hiding the DOM elements.
Test your iOS Apps with the XCUITest framework
After adding support for Espresso for mobile automation testing, we are now live with the XCUITest for XCUITest App testing. You can now say goodbye to the expensive Apple device lab and start testing your iOS applications on LambdaTest Real device cloud. 📱
XCUITest automation on LambdaTest comes with the following features:
- XCUITest app testing on real iOS devices.
- Faster test execution with Parallel testing.
- Test your iOS apps using Swift and Objective-C languages.
- Integrate your XCUITest automation scripts with the best CI/CD tools like Bitrise CI.
- Chrome 104 Beta, 103, 102
- Firefox 102 Beta, 101
- Edge 104 Beta, 103, 102
Currently, we have rolled out the XCUITest framework in the Beta phase. Head over to our official documentation to get started with XCUI Testing.

Copy your App ID in Manual App Testing [Real Devices]
While testing applications manually on real devices, you can now copy the App ID of your uploaded mobile applications.
Android App Testing using Android Debug Bridge (adb)
Android Debug Bridge (adb) allows you to communicate with a device via the command line. You can use the adb command to perform various device actions, such as installing and debugging apps, and it provides access to a Unix shell to run commands.
We are pleased to announce that the Android Debug Bridge (adb) is now available on the LambdaTest platform for real-time Android app testing(on Android Emulators). You can now debug and fix errors in Android applications on the go.
Cross Browser Testing using Brave Browser
Now you can perform online cross browser testing on Brave Browsers to make sure your websites and web apps are compatible with all versions of Brave Browser. Real-time browser testing is supported on Brave 1.32 to 1.40 and all future versions.
Test on Brave browsers for free!
We have also added new browser versions for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge for real-time browser testing.
Debug your website on the go with LT Debug
For web developers and testers, debugging would no longer be a challenge. With LT Debug, your work will be more accessible, fun, and flexible. LT Debug offers more than nine unique debugging features that web developers and testers can leverage in their daily debugging process.
