What’s new in v3.3.0

Accessibility testing

Mobitru Android devices support Screen readers (TalkBack, Voice Assistant, etc.). After enabling the feature in the device settings, gestures change to the accessibility mode: swipes to the right and left change a focus and a double tap activates an action of an element. You can find 1-finger and 2-finger gestures in the Accessibility menu item. Moreover, you can hear what the system pronounces for a focused UI elements.

Filter by location for automation tests

We added a possibility to filter devices by location via the Mobitru API. You can define from what data center to use devices – CIS or EU.

An example of the request: …/automation/api/device/ios?dc=EU.

Booking API

A new parameter is obligatory for scheduling a booking via the Mobitru API: offset. The parameter represents your time zone information in minutes. An example for UTC+3 is “offset”: -180.

Local tunneling for dedicated Android devices

Resolution fix for Samsung devices

On Samsung devices, where users can choose Screen resolution between HD+, FHD+ and WQHD+, the Screen zoom value is adjusted to the WQHD+ during the reset. Now the values are correct, and UI elements do not look gigantic. Examples of the devices where you could face the issue: Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy S10+, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Resolution and viewport fix for iPhone devices

iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 12 mini had incorrect resolution and viewport values. Now the models have the values they should:

  • Resolution: 2340×1080
  • Viewport: 812×375

Log fix for automation

If you run multiple automation tests, the log information is now fully displayed, although it used to be partially cut.

Lock screen fix

Some devices (Xiaomi Redmi 5, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1) remained locked when you started a session on them. You could unlock the screen manually, but it blocked automation tests. Now the action happens right after the session start.
