Is there a way to debug a real remote device like https://crossbrowsertesting.com/real-devices? I want to debug some native device features, is it possible with one of those or logging is my only option there?  

Hi Roman,

If you open the Debugger tab in Service Studio for a mobile app, you can choose whether you want to debug it using a Google Chrome emulator or directly on your mobile device (Android or iOS). 

Check this documentation page on how to do it and set up everything you need.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more help. 


Best regards,

André

Hi, you can't debug native plugins in the emulator. I'm wondering if there's any alternative for a real device debugging if you don't have the right device handy.

Hi,

You can debug a real device. Please have a look at this video:
https://www.outsystems.com/learn/lesson/1320/mobile-apps-in-trouble/

In the video at different place a real device is connected through the Google Chrome interface:

chrome://inspect

You can also have a look at stetho:

But I think I miss understood your question :)
You want to debug a real device which one you don't have right?
I don't think you can do that. How could you for example push on a button on a device you don't have?

Hi,

Yes, that's true, but you can do it with the other two options I mentioned if you have the device. I thought you are asking on how to debug on your mobile device. I don't know if there is any option to debug on real devices if you don't have it handy, sorry.

Are you even serious? 


The real device can be provided by a third party like https://www.browserstack.com/. The problem is that it's not physically connected to your PC via a wire. I don't think Google Chrome extension will allow you to debug native cordova things.

I know you can debug a device that's connected with wifi but I don't know you can debug a device that's with a third party. Sorry I can not help you with this one.


Hi Roman,

I came across this post. I think you might find the answer there?

Please let me know if this helps? 

Hi Hohan, this is an interesting article, however, I was thinking about testing using OS native features. I don't think they cover that in the article. Thanks for the knowledge sharing though 

Maybe you can post a reply on the article with the question?
