<h1>Continuous Testing  23.4 Release Notes</h1>
<p> Released 12 April 2023,  <a href="">Previous release notes</a> </p>

Screenshots From Secured Activities in Android 12 and Above

From Android 12, most screenshot and screen mirroring applications are blocked when there is a secured activity running in the foreground of the Android device. This results in seeing a black screen. Continuous Testing Cloud now overcomes this by introducing an advanced feature that allows you to see the application's snapshot of elements arranged by cloud while giving you the ability to interact with those elements. 

This is an example screenshot generated by the cloud when attempting to set passcode on Android devices when the property is not added vs. added.

Notes and Known Issues

  • Limitations on Android 12 - 14 devices are mentioned here.

  • We recommend removing the passcode on iOS 15.x and 16.x devices to avoid devices going into an error state. Read the complete iOS limitations here.

  • Due to technical limitations, Appium Client 8 is not supported in Appium Grid. Instead, use Appium Server.

  • Network data in Performance Transactions appears in bytes instead of KB, as displayed. 

  • macOS Ventura versions (13.3 and 13.3.1) are not yet supported for DHMs and EHMs.
