We are excited to announce the launch of new features and integrations for TestGrid. These new features make it easier and more efficient for you to test your software applications and allow you to maintain tests more easily regardless of their complexity or platform.
Here are the highlights of the New feature release :
- Screen recording for Manual Tests: Record and review manual testing sessions for quality assurance and training purposes.
- Virtual USB connect: Connect your dedicated cloud devices to local machines for testing and development.
- Local Test Execution and reports: Run your local code/script on our platform and get detailed execution reports.
- Load/performance testing: Simulate real-world user traffic to test the performance of websites and applications under load.
- AI Test Case Generation: Generate test cases automatically from user stories, requirements, and other artifacts.
- Integration with Jira, Teams: Integrate with Jira, Teams, and other popular tools to streamline workflows and improve collaboration.
Manual Testing Session Screen Recording
Manual Testing Session Screen Recording is a new feature that allows you to easily record your manual testing sessions. This means that you can capture video of your entire testing session, including all of your interactions with the website or app under test.
Here are a few example use cases for Manual Testing Session Recording:
- If you are working on a complex test case, you can use Manual Testing Session Recording to document your steps and findings.
- If you need to share your testing process with other team members, you can use Session Recordings to provide them with a clear and concise overview of your steps. This can help to improve communication and collaboration within your team.
- If a test fails, you can use Manual Testing Session Recordings to review your steps and identify the issue. This can help you to quickly debug the test and get it passing again.
- It can be used to onboard new team members on your testing process. By sharing recordings of your testing sessions, you can quickly and easily show new team members how to test specific features and functionality.
Virtual USB Connect
Virtual USB connect is the newest addition to TestGrid 360 degree test offerings. It allows you to connect your dedicated devices on cloud directly to your local machine through Virtual USB (Simulate USB Connection to Machine)..
With this functionality you can easily interact with a device in the TestGrid’s Real Device Cloud via an integrated development environment like Android Studio, Xcode.
Use Cases for Virtual USB Connect
- Virtual USB Connect can be used to debug Android applications on TestGrid devices using Android Studio.
- It can be used to debug iOS applications on TestGrid devices using Xcode. This allows you to set breakpoints, step through code line by line, and inspect variables.
Device Cloud Enhanced UI
The new user interface for the Device Cloud is a significant improvement over the previous UI. It is more modern, intuitive, and efficient, and it includes a number of new features that will make it easier to browse and manage devices.
With the new interface, you can easily filter and sort devices by device type, operating system, and other criteria, making it easier to browse and manage your devices.
Local Execution Dashboard and Reports for Mobile with Steps
This new feature allows you to run your local code/script on our platform and get detailed execution reports with steps and log files. This is a powerful new tool that can help you to improve the quality and efficiency of your testing process.
- Get a real-time overview of the progress of your local test executions, including the number of tests passed, failed, and in progress.
- Easily share your TestGrid reports with other team members for collaboration and review.
TestGrid’s newly launched load/performance testing features offer a comprehensive solution for testing the performance of your applications under load. This is important because it allows teams to test their applications performance under the same conditions that they will experience in production.
- Test the performance of your API under load to ensure that it can handle a high volume of requests.
- Test a mobile app’s ability to handle a high volume of users logging in at the same time.
AI Test Case Generation
TestGrid’s AI-Powered Test Case Generation is a new feature that uses artificial intelligence to generate comprehensive and effective test cases for your software application. TestGrid uses generative AI to train a model to generate test cases. The model is trained on a dataset of existing test cases and their associated user stories and requirements. The model then learns to generate new test cases that are relevant to the user stories and requirements.
Simply provide TestGrid with a simple test scenario explained in English and generate an automated script respectively which empowers all stakeholders to test their native or web app effortlessly.
Here is an example of how AI-Powered Test Case Generation could be used to generate test cases .

The new TestGrid integrations allow you to connect TestGrid with your favorite project management, continuous integration, and test automation tools. You can go to our documentation section for instructions on how to integrate TestGrid with these tools.
TestGrid now integrates with Jira
Jira is a widely-used project management and issue tracking software developed by Atlassian. Companies rely on Jira to track backlogs and defects in order to ensure that things get done as planned. As a result, testers and developers have to use JIra to collaborate when bugs are discovered and resolved.
TestGrid now integrates with Jira, allowing testers to submit defects directly from TestGrid to Jira. This integration can help to reduce the time it takes to fix bugs and improve the overall quality of the software, as developers can now view the details of the defects and the steps to reproduce them directly in Jira.
See document for more information.
Integrations with Project Management Tools
TestGrid now integrates with popular project management and collaboration tools such as Slack and Teams. This integration allows you to manage your test cases and defects in one place, and to receive notifications about test results and other events in your project management tool.
When a new test case or defect is created in TestGrid, the integration can automatically create a new issue in your project management tool. This ensures that all test-related issues are tracked in one place.
Integrations with Devops Tools
TestGrid integrates with popular continuous integration tools such as CircleCI, Azure Pipelines, Travis CI, and Bitrise. This integration allows you to centralize your test results and reporting in a single location, regardless of which CI/CD tool you are using.
TestGrid’s integration with DevOps tools can be used to automate your testing workflows. For example, you can configure TestGrid to automatically trigger tests when new code is committed to your repository or when a new build is deployed. This makes it easier to track your progress over time and identify any potential problems.
Check out the docs section for more information.
Integrations with Test Automation Tools/Frameworks
TestGrid integrates with popular test automation tools/frameworks such as Selenium IDE, Katalon Studio, and Ranorex. This feature allows you to run test cases written on any of these tools on TestGrid’s mobile devices.
