Testing mobile apps, games and devices
Everyone today has multiple devices with different operating systems. This complicates your product’s development if you want to reach as many customers as possible. Now is the time to tackle mobile device fragmentation. Whether iOS, Android, native, or hybrid, you need to test the UX and QA of your mobile apps and games with real users.
How can Testbirds help you optimize your mobile apps, games and devices?
Developing the next Candy Crush, Instagram, or Uber? You can test your mobile app or game with real users on their various devices and optimize your mobile app or game iteratively during the entire development process.
Testing your Android app with our global community of real users early on will ensure a smoother closed testing phase on Google Play Console later in your development process, leading to a more seamless launch on the Play store.
What makes a mobile app or game successful?
Mobile apps and games must make a solid impression when it comes to their functionality and usability. Unfortunately, extensive usability testing is often overlooked. This can lead to apps that don’t satisfy the needs of their target group or that cannot fulfill their purpose. This is a prime reason that the majority of apps are never used more than once.
In response to this challenge, Google has implemented new requirements, mandating that mobile apps undergo closed testing with a minimum of 20 testers for a continuous period of at least 14 days. This prerequisite must be fulfilled before the apps can be launched on the Google Play app store.
If you want to make sure that your mobile apps and games are a perfect fit for your audience – test them before they go to market with the help of our Crowd.
Providing a high product quality with functional testing
It’s important to ensure that apps work on all relevant devices and operating systems and that they perform as they should. For example, Android OS version 12 was released in early 2021, version 11 in late 2020, and version 10 in 2019.
Not everyone replaces their devices each year or updates their OS, which makes at least three versions you have to consider during development and testing – including the many updates for each. Then consider the multiple combinations of devices running each different OS! An error may occur on the latest smartphone for version 11 but not 12.
Few companies have access to the hundreds of different combinations of operating systems, browsers, software, and devices that would enable them to test for such issues. The solution is simple – tackle device and OS diversity using our crowdtesters and the million-plus different devices they use.
For developers aiming to launch on the Google Play store, it’s crucial to test your Android app with real users early in the development process. Optimizing your mobile app at this stage sets the foundation for a streamlined closed testing phase on Google Play Console.
