Today we've added Android to our Selenium grid, which means you can now use our grid for mobile testing as well. We've hooked up an Android Ice Cream Sandwich emulator to the grid, which speaks Webdriver protocol.


You can now test how your website behaves and how a page looks like on an Android cellphone by using webdriver. An example in ruby code:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require "rubygems"
gem "selenium-client"
gem "selenium-webdriver"
require "selenium-webdriver"
require "selenium/client"

caps = Selenium::WebDriver::Remote::Capabilities.android
driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for(
  :remote,
  :url => "http://api_key:api_secret@hub.testingbot.com:4444/wd/hub",
  :desired_capabilities => caps)
driver.navigate.to "http://www.google.com"
element = driver.find_element(:name, 'q')
element.send_keys "Hello WebDriver!"
element.submit
puts driver.title
driver.quit

Starting from today this functionality is available to all our customers. Let us know what you think. Enjoy!
