Howdy, Testers! Welcome to the LambdaTest product update. It’s no secret that we love creating enticing products! We love what we do because of our power users and their valuable feedback. So, as the year comes to a close, we wanted to share the latest updates and features that went live last month.

The month of November was quite productive for us. We have launched the Screen reader feature on macOS for accessibility testing in real-time, new browsers for real-time testing and automation, the latest integrations with bug tracking tools, and new learning hubs. We also had other major releases like Windows 11 (Beta) and Android 12 (Beta) for cross browser testing, new Android emulators, and much more.

Let’s dive in and unbox all these cool new features.

Screen Reader Feature For Accessibility Testing

Accessibility testing has evolved as a critical component of manual website testing. For real-time testing of websites and web apps, it is crucial that the tester not only depends on visual input but also uses a Screen reader for audio navigation.

With LambdaTest real-time testing, you can now use the Screen feature for performing accessibility testing of websites and web apps on macOS Monterey, macOS Big Sur, and macOS Catalina.

Real-Time Testing On Chrome 96 Beta & 95

You can perform live-interactive testing of websites and web apps on Chrome 96 Beta and Chrome 95. With LambdaTest you can test on real Chrome browsers to check the website’s features and functionalities in real user conditions.

Real-Time Testing On Chrome

Here is a quick video tutorial on the real-time browser testing.

Latest Browsers In Automation

Expedite automation testing process by testing your websites and web apps on the new browser versions. We have added the latest browser versions for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera.

Here is the list of new browsers for test automation.

  1. Chrome 97 Beta (For Windows), 96
  2. Firefox 95 Beta
  3. Edge 96, 95
  4. Opera 81, 80

Let’s check the cross-browser compatibility between Chrome 97, Firefox 95, Edge 96, and Opera 81.


Newest Integration With Bug Tracking Tools

We are now LIVE with two new integrations with bug-tracking tools that are PagerDuty and Bugsnag.

Integration With Bug Tracking Tools

1. PagerDuty Integration: PagerDuty is a bug monitoring platform that notifies clients of interruptions and failures using machine learning and automation. These faults are found in real-time, alerting the appropriate people to address any issues as soon as possible,

To get started, refer to the PagerDuty Integration documentation.

2. Bugsnag Integration: Bugsnag is a bug-tracking tool that enables your developers to detect, prioritize, and reproduce issues quickly. Individual crashes are segregated by root issues and presented as discrete errors in Bugsnag for easier prioritization.

To integrate LambdaTest with Bugsnag, refer to the Bugsnag Integration documentation.

New Learning Hubs: Selenium Cucumber & Selenium JavaScript

The path to a successful website and web page testing is steep and twisty. It is challenging to be a QA professional when the possibilities with Selenium automation testing are constantly increasing. To help you out there, we have launched two new learning hubs: Selenium Cucumber and Selenium JavaScript.

These learning hubs will help you gain foundational knowledge of Selenium Cucumber and Selenium JavaScript to expedite your test automation learnings.

Learning Hubs

Cross Browser Testing On Windows 11

Microsoft has recently released Windows 11 as a free upgrade for Windows 10 users. Windows 11 comes with various improvements, including an attractive modern design, enhanced security, and new techniques to search and download programs.

Are your websites and web apps ready for Windows 11?

We are pleased to announce that you can now perform cross browser compatibility testing of your websites and web apps on Windows 11. Currently, we have rolled out Windows 11 in the Beta phase.

Android 12 Support In Real-Time Testing

After nearly eight months of developer previews and betas, Android 12 is now a fully finished OS. Android 12 is one of Google’s most audacious initiatives in years, with a slew of new capabilities and a major design overhaul.

To make your web apps and mobile apps render correctly on different mobile devices running Android 12, we have added Android 12 support on the LambdaTest cloud.

With this feature, you can now perform live mobile browser testing of websites and web apps on the latest Android 12.

Real-Time Testing

Well, that’s not all, you can also test mobile applications manually on Android 12.

Currently, we’ve rolled out Android 12 on some selected Android emulators. However, we will be rolling out for the remaining emulators soon.

To make your mobile testing more productive, we’ve also added new Android emulators to test on One Plus 9, 9 Pro, Nord, Oppo Reno 6 Pro, and test on Redmi 11 Pro, 11 for browser testing and live native app testing.

Here’s a quick rundown of LambdaTest’s mobile app testing features:

All In All!

That brings us to the end of our product update. We hope the new cool additions will jazz up your testing workflow and make it more productive. We are consistently trying to expand and improve our platform to meet all of your testing needs. Do give these new features a spin and share feedback on the LambdaTest Community.
