Dear Sauce user,

As we continue our mission to provide our users with the best coverage for testing applications, we are happy to announce that Sauce Labs now supports Chrome 74. 

Our Platform Configurator has also been updated to reflect this newest version.

Happy Testing,

Announcing End of Life for Edge 13 

Dear Sauce user,

In our continuing efforts to provide the best performing, most up-to-date platform for our users, Sauce Labs will discontinue support for Edge 13 across all Windows Operating Systems on May 5, 2019. We made this decision due to reduced market share of these versions, along with diminished usage by our customers. After May 5,2019,  please switch to Edge 14.

We strongly recommend that customers update their tests to the current supported versions and devices. Our Platform Configurator always has the most up-to-date list of supported browsers and operating systems.

Please contact support@saucelabs.com if you have any questions or need additional information.

Happy Testing

Samantha 

Product Manager

In our continuing efforts to provide the best performing, most up-to-date platform for our users, Sauce Labs will discontinue support for the following operating systems and Appium versions on Sauce Real Device Cloud:


Appium Versions

  • 1.6.5
  • 1.7.1
  • 1.7.2-cd-2.37

Android Devices

  • Android 4.X 


We made this decision due to reduced market share of these versions, along with diminished usage by our customers. We strongly recommend customers to periodically update their tests to run on the latest iOS and Appium versions and the most widely used Android versions. 


Happy Testing!

We're excited to announce a new Getting Started page within the Sauce Labs application to help you learn to write and run Selenium automated tests. Under Getting Started, you can go through four instructional modules to help you:

  • Run a simple Selenium test against our new demo web application
  • Use environment variables and run a Selenium test against your own web site
  • Run tests on different browsers and use our Platform Configurator to automatically generate desired capabilities
  • Incorporate best practices into your Selenium tests

The Getting Started page is currently available to free trial users and self-serve users (aka credit card subscribers) in our US data center. We are working on updates to make it available to customers in our EU data center and then to our contract customers. 




Happy Testing!
