No. You don't need to install any software or extension or plugin or setting configurations of any type. Just need to login to LambdaTest.com, open the virtual machine through launcher, and start testing. That's the beauty of cloud. It gets you started super quick.
There are 2000+ browsers, browser versions, operating systems, devices, and resolutions to choose from. To find out about the complete list of available browsers, checkout this page here.
All desktop session right now are running on real browsers real operating system and are powered by real machines. Mobile browsers right now are running on emulators. We are working right now to bring real mobile devices as well.
Microsoft Windows Desktop Editions licences does not support remote access to users. So we use Windows Server editions and implement Desktop experience in it. It has exactly the same experience as Windows desktop editions and they are running Internet Explorers made for desktop editions.
Whenever a new stable browser version is released we usually implement it in our platform within a week. We also test them ourselves first before providing it to customers to make sure that testing experience is optimum for all users.
Here are the operating systems and browsers running on 32 Bit Operating systems.
All our virtual machines comes with pre-installed latest versions of Adobe Flash, Adobe Shockwave, Adobe Reader, JAVA Runtime Environment, Microsoft Silverlight, and Quicktime.
You would have full access to all keyboard shortcuts. For people using same operating systems on both their local computer and virtual machine won't have any problems. However people who are using Mac machines to access Windows VM or Windows machine to access Mac VM, would have to careful about OS specific shortcuts. For example when working on Mac OS, use Control Key instead of command key for copy pasting.
Yes you can. You would have full access to download and upload functionalities. You can access Downloads folder through File-> Open file, or Control+O shortcut. Be advised however, each downloaded file will be automatically erased on shutting down the sessions.
You would have full access to all browsers settings. Be advised however, if you need very specific browser settings, you would have to re-configure browser settings on starting each new session.
For Chrome and Firefox browsers, you should be able to access audio streaming and therefore should be able to hear sounds properly. For mobile emulators, Internet Explorer, and Safari, we currently dont have support to provide you access to Audio. It's because of the inherent technology involved in these browsers. We are working on a workaround though so let's see.
In the free plan you can run only one session at a time. Paid plan users can run multiple sessions depending upon their plan. Click here to checkout multiple session plans and their pricing.
The number of sessions is limited by number of sessions running by a organisation, not by user. Therefore it is entirely possible that you reach out of session limit even if only one or two users are using LambdaTest tool. Co-ordinate with your teammates in this case. If you are sure there is session issue from our end, you can raise a ticket at our support portal here. Don't worry, we have a very fast turnaround time.
By default, if you leave the Lamdatest Live session idle for 5 minutes, the app will prompt a reminder. If no action is taken then LambdaTest would close the live session. You can change this setting from Live settings options. Checkout this link to understand more about it.
Switching tab won't stop or pause the Live session. If left idle for 5 minutes or more, Lambdates will prompt a reminder and if unanswered will close the session.
The moment you close the session, LambdaTest automatically sanitize the whole virtual machine. What that means is that we delete all historical data, downloads, installed extensions, saved passwords, etc. We reset the browsers to factory settings. This automatically logs you out of all pages and auto deletes all data that you may have saved. You would still have access to screenshots and issues you may have generated during the session.
Right now yes. Every time you close a session we would reset all settings. We are working on a way to help you change and save a set of customized default browser settings. If your need is critical and changing browser settings in each new session takes a lot of your time, send us a message from here. We will try to find a solution for you.
There maybe a number of reasons why this happened which include
LambdaTest test system allows only a limited number of concurrent running sessions per organisation. This limit is defined by the plan that you have subscribed. If you need more concurrent sessions, you can change your plan here, or contact one of our sales executive by leaving a message here.
It's simple. In real time browser, on left side you will find multiple action buttons in the controller. One of them will be a screenshot button with camera icon. Just click that and in no time your screenshot will be recorded. Once recorded, an image editor will pop up where you can edit the screenshot, mark it as a bug and comment about the details. Lastly, you can find them anytime in test logs section of the menu.
By going to the issue tracker, you can add your teammates as watchers for the particular issue and you can also assign them the issue by marking them as 'assignee'. Incase the team-mate is not added yet, you will also find an option in the tracker to invite them.

Certain websites block the script which we use for the Device Sync feature to work. It doesn't let the WebSocket connection stay. Generally, the e-commerce and social media websites block this script to prevent data scraping and crawling bots. Whenever you test the particular website, you will get a warning message. You are requested to disable the Device Sync for that particular website.
Device Sync works with loading a script on the website, which creates a WebSocket connection. You need to wait for the web page to load completely before the Device Sync can be used. For certain websites that have a different scroll behavior for the images and pages, the Scroll Sync might behave in this way.
The audit report can be generated only for the public URLs. We currently use the Google LightHouse API to fetch the performance data which limits the audit for private or locally hosted web pages.
Yes, the audit reports are shareable. You can either generate a non-expiring shareable link or share the report with your team over email. Currently, we don’t provide a feature to export the Audit report as a PDF or doc.
You can try clearing the cache using the 'Clear Website Cache' option under 'Advanced settings'. If the issue persists, this might be due to the web view. Currently, LT Browser uses web view to render the website. Therefore, the content renders accordingly. So in certain edge cases for some configurations, you may notice that the website behavior is slightly different from that on the real device.
The website might have certain OS-level configuration requirements that don’t get replicated on LT Browser. For such scenarios, we suggest you use the real-time testing feature of LambdaTest.
This can be due to the cache of the website. You can clear the cache using the 'Clear Website Cache' option under 'Advanced settings'.
You can try clearing the cache using the 'Clear Website Cache' option under 'Advanced settings'. The webpage then opens with cache cleared and the tests can be performed once the page loads completely.
This issue can be solved with the widget and pop-up toggle from the 'Advanced Settings'. When the toggle is off, the links will open in New Tab. Otherwise, the links would not open in the new tab. Also, you can open the links in New Tab by using the shortcut 'Ctrl+click' even while the toggle is off.
