Article Summary

Espresso is a testing framework for Android which automatically synchronizes your test actions with the UI of your app. The platform allows you to write concise and reliable Android UI tests. It also lets the test wait until all the background activities have finished.

After the test cases are run you can see the detailed reports. Once automation ends, the device under test will be released automatically so that you or other users can use it later.

There are two ways you can execute espresso test cases.

  1. Using the pCloudy UI Dashboard
