The testing community has experienced an entire bunch of nuances by integration of AI and automation. There has been plenty of ups and downs, advancements and upliftments, challenges and issues, but the past year was remarkable and upcoming year is going to be record-breaking. The emerging trend in mobile app testing is automated testing tools and adoption of DevOps with the emerging challenges that include curtailed time for app development leading to curtailed time for app testing. No matter how many challenges comes the way, mobile app development companies are never going to stop testing. This is a step of app development that has to be followed always and forever. Have a look at the new trends emerging in the testing sector.
Details of Mobile App Testing
1) Increase in DevOps
The basic concept of DevOps lies around cutting the time in between the process of development to operation without sacrificing even a bit in the quality. Well, testing has been here for years but the trend has to reach the sky heights but the rigorous need has been aroused since past 5 years. This is going to hype even more in the future You are going to witness more organizations integrating DevOps. It focuses more on automation and hence more tools will be entering the market in support of automated testing.
2) Using Manual and Automated Testing Side by Side
I agree with the fact that majority of the organizations are diverging their ways towards automated testing but this won’t refrain the fact either that manual testing has equal significance as well. Manual testing is time-consuming but accurate and automated testing is speedy and easy going. Smart organizations are those who make the most out of the both.
3) Scanty Delivery
Everyone is in hurry and time is something everyone is always running short of. This emerges the need for prompt mobile app development, This will force the developers to develop hastily and testers to test the apps tastily. More and more RMAD tools are emerging in the market to deploy apps promptly. This will be like adding fuel to the fire and making the need of DevOps even more and integration of automated testing more prominent.
4) API and Services Test
The core focus of the test automation is the user interface. A bulk of API and services testing is undertaken by the developers and that too manually. If this manual testing is replaced by the automated one, the pace will lit up like the light for UI and automated testing. Well, the developers who are well versed with the testing since years and are fairly in the know of best tools for service and API testing will rule the market. They will be able to cope with the faster deployment of upsurged app quality.
5) Choosing the Right Type of Testing
There has been a wide array of testing types. Undertaking testing with each one of them would be highly time-consuming. This leads you to choose the type that is more prevalent in the market. Currently, functional testing and rigorous testing are the types which are undertaken by a wide range of the testing community.
