Create automated tests on MoQuality and run on Genymotion Cloud Android Virtual Devices

Today MoQuality and Genymotion are excited to announce our partnership to launch the integration of the two mobile app test-automation platforms. This partnership solves some key challenges with test automation.

Many app testers are not comfortable with scripting automated tests and find it challenging to setup a robust and reliable test infrastructure. A second challenge is the fragmentation of mobile devices in the market. It is becoming increasingly difficult to test on such a vast number of devices. Now, our users can easily create automated tests using MoQuality’s test authoring and Robo Testing tools and run them instantly on Genymotion’s cloud-based virtual devices.

What is Genymotion?

Genymotion offers Cloud-based Android device emulators available on a private cloud, on AWS, GCP or Alibaba Cloud (PaaS). Using Genymotion Cloud users can run Appium, Espresso, Robotium tests in parallel on Android running directly as a virtual machine through a web browser. It provides Android device access without the complexity of managing the test infrastructure. Genymotion has pre-configured templates representing thousands of devices on the private cloud service.

Why use MoQuality and Genymotion together?

This integration makes it easy to get started with test-automation for anyone who is new to Appium and other mobile test frameworks. It adds the capability for users to test their apps on various combinations of older devices and OS versions also which are unavailable in the market now but still are being used by many end-customers.

Users can now use MoQuality’s test-authoring tools to create tests without writing any scripts, but also generate, edit and run Appium scripts on the fly. With the integration, it is now possible to directly run these tests on 200+ cloud-based virtual devices instantly. Test runs can be triggered directly from MoQuality or from your favorite CI tool. The MoQuality platform builds and maintains the required test infrastructure and dependencies including managing the devices and running the tests in parallel. The test run errors, device logs, UI issues, performance insights are aggregated, and instantly available in one comprehensive dashboard, which can be shared with the team to recreate and resolve the issues.
