Revamped device window
UFTM now includes a revamped device access window when you open a lab device remotely. This provides a better user experience and improved functionality for interacting with a device.
Interact with the device using the actions in the toolbar next to the device, and the options in the panels on the left and right-hand side of the device access window. You can collapse the panels, change the order of the tabs at the top of the panels, and drag and drop tabs from one panel to another. Exploratory testing is now included in the side panel, and you start and stop recording of sessions using the options in the exploratory testing panel. For details, see Device access window.
A new accessibility inspector in the device access window enables you to verify that VoiceOver and TalkBack users can conveniently use your app. The TalkBack/VoiceOver descriptions for each accessibility element are displayed as text, together with the available attributes for the element. For details, see Manual Testing.
