Vysor – tiny tool for mobile testing


This time – not precisely about catching bugs – rather about improving your work as a mobile tester / developer. I know that there are people (still), who never heard of Vysor. This short blog post is for them 🙂

Vysor is a Chrome extension that allows you to share the screen of a mobile phone on your computer desktop. They advertise it as “A window to your Android” and it really works this way.

It becomes extremely useful when it comes to demo for your customer. It is also useful on daily basis. You are able to connect smartphone to the computer and perform clicks or inputs using your mouse an keyboard. Sometimes it’s really time-saving.

Here is a link to some tutorials – but the tool is pretty straightforward.

And remember – to make all work – plug your mobile phone to the computer using a cable and enable developer options. Enjoy!
