Title:         Mobile App GUI Testing in Industry: Practices and Challenges



In 2019, ByteDance released the first version of Fastbot, a stability testing tool for mobile apps. After four years of iteration and optimisation, Fastbot has acquired capabilities such as intelligent traversal, multi-device collaboration, custom events, changed-focused exploration, and human-like testing. In this talk, we present Fastbot’s technical design and discuss challenges faced by Fastbot in practice. We also hope to discuss insights and reflections on mobile app testing in the era of emerging machine learning technologies, such as large language models.
