      This blog is the fourth in a series of posts about Remote Test Lab (RTL). In previous blogs, we covered what is Remote Test Lab, its new features, and Auto Repeat. In this blog, we show you how to connect RTL to Android Studio and how to deploy and debug your app on the remote device. In an upcoming blog, we are going to take a deep dive into some additional features of Remote Test Lab.
      Remote Test Lab allows you to run and debug your application on real devices remotely. In this blog, we will connect a Remote Test Lab device with a local development machine’s ADB (Android Debug Bridge) using Remote Debug Bridge.
      The Remote Debug Bridge tool enables you to run and debug your app to check compatibility with the latest Samsung mobile devices, which solves the problem of not having your own physical devices.
      Connect your Remote Test Lab device to Android Studio
      To get started, launch a Remote Test Lab client, then go to Remote Test Lab and reserve one of the available mobile devices.
      The operating system version, device location, and desired time can be selected on the Remote Test Lab page. A JNLP file is downloaded to your computer when you click the Start button. If you run this file, the Remote Test Lab client is launched and a live image of the device is shown in the client.
      Step 1. When the live image is shown, right-click on the device's screen and select ‘Test > Remote Debug Bridge.’

      Step 2. In the pop-up window, view the required command and port number to connect your Android Studio to the Remote Test Lab device.

      Step 3. Open a Command Prompt window and run the ADB command with the given port number. In this example, the command is:
      adb connect localhost:50964

      Note: You must accept the RSA key prompt by allowing USB debugging when you run the ADB connect command for the first time on a Remote Test Lab device.
      Deploy and debug apps from Android Studio
      Step 1. The device is now ready to deploy your app from Android Studio. Build and run your app from Android Studio. In the following screenshot, an app is being deployed on a Remote Test Lab device from Android Studio.

      Step 2. The app is deployed and launched successfully on the Remote Test Lab device

      Step 3. Debug your app from Android Studio just like on a real device.

      In conclusion, Remote Test Lab offers a convenient and effective way to check the compatibility of your app and use debug facilities. Finally, our developer forum is an excellent way to stay up-to-date on all things related to the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem.

      Debugging mobile devices can be a real pain compared to debugging desktop browsers. When you want to start testing on many devices this process can get even more infuriating, including juggling USB-C Cables, Micro USB and Lightning Cables, and, ensuring your testing devices are charged and updated. If you want to get serious about mobile testing you need to set up a full device lab which requires a significant amount of investment. Once you have set up a wide range of testing devices, next you need to set up your browsers to test on. So which browsers do you pick to test?

      With over half a billion active users as of March 2021, Samsung Internet is a browser to be reckoned with. And yet, testing on Samsung Internet is not as mainstream as, say, Chrome or Safari. Our latest partnership with BrowserStack is all set to change this. All you have to do is sign up and start testing.

      Mobile Browser Market Share in Europe — March 2021
      Real devices make all the difference
      Samsung Internet is the default browser for Samsung devices but can be used on all Android devices. It is a fork of Chrome maintained by Samsung that allows us to add enhancements to meet the need of Samsung's power users. Though we try to maintain as much compatibility with mainline Chromium, there may be some unexpected issues. This makes it incredibly important to test and debug on Samsung Internet in addition to other popular mobile browsers on real devices for real-world results. Samsung Internet can be debugged through ADB (Android Device Bridge) and chrome://inspect just like mobile Chrome. But there is a more convenient route to debugging on Samsung Internet than plugging a device into your computer, which is to test and debug on real devices instantly with BrowserStack.
      BrowserStack is the world's leading testing platform that provides instant access to 2,000+ real mobile devices and browsers and is used by over 2 million developers worldwide. Samsung Internet and BrowserStack's exclusive partnership gets you six months of unlimited free testing on Samsung devices, giving you the perfect environment to test Samsung Internet.
      Testing on Samsung Internet with BrowserStack
      BrowserStack allows you to test on Samsung Internet on real devices. You need to sign up to start debugging on real devices streamed to your browser.
      First sign up here, for the exclusive free trial, giving you six months' free access to test on Samsung Internet on BrowserStack's real device cloud.

      This blog is the third in a series of posts about Remote Test Lab. In previous blogs, we covered what is Remote Test Lab and its new features. Next, we are going to take a deep dive into some useful features of Remote Test Lab.
      The Remote Test Lab service lets you install and test your applications on real devices. In this blog, we are going to install an application and test it on Remote Test Lab devices with Auto Repeat. Auto Repeat is a tool that lets you create a test scenario automatically, repeat the same test several times, and reuse the test later.
      Information: The Auto Repeat feature is supported on a Java-based client only.
      Install your application
      To get started, launch a Remote Test Lab client, then go to Remote Test Lab and reserve one of the available mobile devices.
      You can install your application on the remote device by dragging and dropping the application package from your computer into the Remote Test Lab client. Through the client, you can watch how the application behaves on the device.


      You can also install applications by going to Management > Application Manager or selecting Test > Install Application in the device context menu.
      Install your application in any of the ways described above.
      Record and play events
      Recording and playing back events is one of the ways to test your applications automatically. When you record events for repeated testing, we recommend that you start and finish recording at the same screen on the Remote Test Lab client.
      The following figure shows the most commonly used buttons in the Auto-Repeat window.

      ① The Add button lets you add more actions manually.
      ② The Record button starts recording actions on your device screen.
      ③ The Play button starts playing a test.
      ④ The Stop button stops playing a test.
      To start recording a test scenario, proceed as follows:
      Click Test > Auto Repeat in the context menu on the Remote Test Lab client. In the Auto Repeat window, click the Record button.
      Once the Record button is clicked, all events on the RTL client are recorded. The recorded events are added to the Event List in the Auto Repeat window. Click the Stop button when you want to stop recording.
      The number of events and how long the test took to run appear under the Event List. To run the test repeatedly, enter a number into the Test Repeat field in the Test Option section. Click the Play button.
      Monitor the progress of your test in the Auto Repeat window. You can check the completion progress as well as which step is currently running. Click File > Save.
      An xml file is saved to your computer. You can reuse the xml file to test your application on other devices with the same resolution. The following video shows each step of recording events and playing back the test procedure.


      Create test sequences manually
      You can also create a test scenario by adding events manually. This method can be more complicated but it lets you insert a wide variety of events to your scenario.
      To add an event to your test scenario, proceed as follows:
      Click the add button in the Auto Repeat window.
      Select a desired event.
      The selected event is added to the Event List section.
      Fill in the related information in the Event Properties section.
      Every event has its own properties. Properties you do not need to fill in are marked with N/A in the Event List section. If a mandatory property is missing, the test isn't performed.
      Click the Play button.
      The following video shows each step of adding events manually.


      You can create complete test scenarios by recording events or manually add more events to make the test scenarios more sophisticated.
