Test Studio


What's Coming in 2022?

The Telerik Test Studio Team is excited to announce the new features and improvements that we plan to deliver over the next few releases.

We want to thank you for the continuous support and encourage you to share your thoughts, plans, and ideas for what you would like to see developed for Test Studio in our dedicated feedback portal.

The items below are what we feel comfortable announcing, but there is more on our radar. Check back periodically for updates.

Test Studio

Extensionless Recording and Execution in Chrome

New feature R1 2022

Due to various security restrictions, some companies see difficulties using extensions for automated tests recording and execution. Test Studio will provide a way to craft your test automation without bothering with extensions. All you'll need is Google Chrome. Skipping the extension would also increase the speed of tests and bring in a few more benefits.

This feature has already been released in R1 2022 and will be improved and optimized during the whole 2022.

Desktop Testing

New feature R2 2022
Support for Windows desktop applications (e.g. Windows Forms, etc.):
  • Test Recorder
  • Element Repository
  • Coded steps
  • Test lists
  • Scheduling and CI/CD support

Improved Support for Telerik and Kendo UI Controls


Test Studio natively supports Telerik and Kendo UI controls providing an extended set of actions, and verifications for seamless test automation. Planned Improvements:

  • Update the translators to support the latest component changes.
  • Introduce translator versioning unlocking backward compatibility.
  • Add new translators according to customer usage and requests.

The translator versioning mechanism has already been released with R1 2022 SP1. Any translator issues caused by Telerik and Kendo UI component releases will be addressed asap.

UI and UX Improvements


Various Test Studio IDE user interface improvements have been scheduled for 2022. Some of them are:

  • Redesigned Welcome View
  • Updated and consistent icons in the product
  • Improved guidelines in the empty test area.
  • Improved test naming mechanism when creating new tests.
