How to Post an Unreleased Android Test

Last Updated: Nov 30, 2016 10:11AM PST

Unreleased Android testing is as simple as sharing a link with UserTesting. All you need to do is provide us with a link to your APK file when you order the test. Instructions will be provided to testers to download and install the unreleased Android app before they begin your test.

Note: Only admin level members can launch and order tests.

Step 1. Log in
Log into your dashboard.

Step 2. Create a Test
Click Create A New Test.


Step 3. Website or App Test
Select whether you will be testing a website or an app. In this case, we'll select Test an App.


Step 4. Select what you want to test and a platform
You have the choice to test an app on iOS or Android as well as the option of selecting which stage your app is currently at. Select Unreleased App.


Pro Tip: You cannot launch both an iOS and Android App test within the same study. If you need to test the same app on an iOS and Android device just create a similar test and indicate a different platform.

Step 5. Choose a recording method

Step 6. Upload Your App
Provide a link to your APK file when you order a test. This link will be provided to participants to install your unreleased Android app before their test begins.


Step 7. Starting Instructions
Provide a scenario for the mindset users should have during the study.


For example: "Imagine you are searching for a gift for a friend's birthday."

Step 8. Choose your Target Audience
Indicate the number of participants you'd like for this study.


Screeners are multiple choice questions which participants are required to answer correctly before they are able to accept you test. This is an optional feature you can select if the demographic fields above do not cover your requirements. Click here to read more about screeners.

Step 9. Select Tasks
Place the questions and tasks you'd like participants to complete during your test. You can also refer to our bank of popular tasks if you're not sure what tasks or questions to use.


Pro Tip: Feel free to add the following as your last task: "Please record yourself deleting the app from your device."

Step 10. Written Questions
After participants finish recording their session, they'll see a pop up questionnaire with 1 - 4 questions requiring a written response. You can use the default questions that are included with every test or write your own!


Step 11. Review and Launch Test
