At Google I/O today, Google introduced Play Store developers to a new cloud testing service, which will help devs ensure their apps work on top-selling Android devices.


The service, which Google calls Cloud Test Lab, will accept test APKs to test on the top 20 Android devices around the world. The service will then provide crash logs, analysis, and screenshots to help pinpoint issues before your app goes to production.

In a post to the Android developers blog, Google explains that apps will be run on physical devices using a fully automated testing process in accordance with your app's targeting criteria.

The program is expected to launch later this year, but interested developers can sign up to be a tester here in the meantime.
