Visual UI Testing for Android Apps with Espresso and Studio App Center

John Powell

This is a guest post from Daniel Puterman, engineering lead at Applitools.

Suppose you’ve built a new Android app and want to build some visual test automation scripts to ensure that it appears correctly on the devices it might run on. Not all the Android devices out there — just the top 20 for now. Suppose further that your app isn’t all that complex; just ten screens, with an average of ten visual elements each. And you won’t check every last attribute of those visual elements, just five: x, y position, height, width, and text.

Simple, right?

Unfortunately, no.
