With Sauce Labs you can run live tests of your web apps using native browsers for Android and iOS on both virtual and real mobile devices. 

Real Devices

Testing Websites or Applications on localhost or an Internal Network

Sometimes apps are designed to run on internal networks, or on networks that can be accessed only from specific IP addresses. In this case, you can add an exception for TestObject to your network's whitelist for the IP range 185.94.24.0/22 for the European data center, or the IP range 162.222.72.0/21 and 66.85.48.0/21 for the US data center.

  1. Log in to Sauce Labs and select Live Testing from the options in the left-hand navigation. 
  2. Click Web Browser.
  3. Select Real Devices.
  4. Use the filter options or Search field to find the type of real device you want to use in your test, and select it.  
    You can find previous devices you've used in your tests under Recent. You can also save devices for later use by selecting Save this Configuration

  5. For Test URL, enter the URL of the website you want to test in the browser.

  6. If you are using Sauce Connect Proxy to access the web app you want to test, enter the ID of the tunnel to use.

Running Tests in Parallel

You can run multiple live test sessions at the same time, with the number of tests limited by the concurrency allowance associated with your account. If you want to start additional sessions, click the + icon next to the tab containing the URL of your current test session. Follow the steps to set up the session, and then you can switch back and forth between the sessions by clicking on the URL tabs.
