Supported devices

Suitest is a ubiquitous test automation tool that works with many types of devices and platforms. After configuring a device in your Suitest account you will be able to do many interesting things that probably not have been possible before. For instance, you will be able to:

  • Control and execute commands on multiple devices at once.
  • Schedule a particular action on a group of devices.
  • Control local and remote devices with equal ease.
  • Test and debug apps on local and remote devices.

You can also benefit from Suitest public device lab and use Suitest-managed devices for live testing, test authoring and automated test executions.

Supported device types

The current support is as follows:

  • Android TV based devices. This includes any device running Android TV 5.0 or later, such as the Amazon Fire TV and many other TVs, set-top boxes and consoles.
  • Apple TV 4th and 5th generation devices
  • Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari browsers
  • Apple TV Simulator

Supported device platforms

Suitest can be used for app testing on well-known platforms as well as proprietary environments, like TV or set-top box interfaces and internal software.

Currently supported well-known platforms:

  • Android TV 5.0 and later
