In Test Studio R3 2015, native Android support comes to Test Studio.

The wait is over for those who develop and test Android applications. The R3 release of Test Studio will support testing native Android applications.

Testing Android devices is a very involved process, due to the prevalent fragmentation issue and the manufacturer-specific Android setups being put on so many devices. There is a need for a testing solution that creates a more stable, polished app that will be robust enough to perform reliably across these Android variants.

Here are a few highlights from this latest release:

Test Studio Mobile:

  • Automated testing for native Android applications. Create and run automated tests on real devices and emulators without writing a single line of code. Create tests once and execute them on multiple devices.


  • Test lists: Create iOS and Android test lists, execute against connected devices in parallel.


  • Connect your devices via USB or WiFi: We’ve added the ability to connect your iOS and Android devices directly via USB connection.

  • With R3’s added USB support, Continuous Integration with Windows, MAC & Linux is supported.


  • Drill-down results for Mobile Test Lists: We’ve added new UI that allows you to drill in to the test list, test and test step level. 


We made several improvements to Test Studio Web & Desktop solution as well. Please see the highlights below:

  • Intellimap is now available in Visual Studio plugin.
