Cypress Testing On Latest OS, New Devices, Browsers In Automation, And Much More!

Happy April to our beloved users. Despite the lingering summer heat, our incredible team of developers continues to grind. Throughout this month, we released several new features in automation testing, manual app testing, and app test automation on real devices, rolled out new devices, browsers, integrations, and much more.

Without further ado, let’s skim the major highlights of the last month!

Run Cypress test Automation on the latest OS

Recently, we released macOS Monterey and Windows 11 for Selenium automation testing. We are happy to announce that Cypress testing now supports these two operating systems as well. To get started, please refer to the Cypress testing documentation.

You can also refer to the below Cypress tutorial.

Please visit our LambdaTest YouTube channel for more videos on mobile app testing tutorials, responsive testing, mobile testing, and Cypress testing.

New Android devices & browsers in Automation

There has been a recent improvement in automation. However, when it comes to mobile testing, we’ve put a lot of effort into making automation testing work well. Here’s what we’ve got for you:

  1. Perform Android automation testing on new emulators –
    • OnePlus 9, 8, 7, 6
    • Vivo Z1 Pro
    • Vivo Y15
    • HUAWEI Mate 40, 8
    • HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro
    • Nokia G10, G50
    • Nokia 9 PureView
    • Xiaomi 8
    • Oppo A7, A9, A72, A91
  2. Conduct automated browser testing of websites and web applications on the newly added browser versions.
    • Chrome 100 Beta, 99 98
    • Firefox 99 Beta, 98, 97
    • Edge 99 Beta, 98
    • Opera 84, 83

Let’s analyze the browser compatibility of the above browsers between Chrome 100 Beta, Firefox 99 Beta, and Edge 99 Beta.

You can generate Selenium capabilities from the LambdaTest Desired Capability Generator.

Screenshot testing on macOS Monterey

Now take cross browser screenshots on macOS Monterey to quickly identify cross browser compatibility bugs. You can generate automated screenshots across the latest and old Mac Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera browsers running on macOS Monterey.

Check out some more additions to Screenshot testing –

  1. We’ve also added the latest browsers in Screenshot to test on macOS Big Sur.
    • Chrome 98, 97, 96, 95
