How to Launch an Unreleased Android App Test

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

Step 1. Log in
Log into your dashboard.

Step 2. Create a Test
Click New and scroll down to select Create an unmoderated test.




Step 3. Choose whether you want to test  a: Prototype, Website or App 
 In this case, we'll select  App.



Step 4. Select your panel

In order to test an unreleased Android app, you'll need to select Panels. Unreleased app testing is not yet available for My Recruit.



Step 5. Upload your app file
At this stage, upload your APK file. You can also drag and drop the file.



Step 7. Select Your Audience
Use a saved audience or create  from scratch. Indicate the number of participants you'd like for this study and indicate your demographic preferences. For app tests, participants can use a tablet or smartphone.



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 7. Build your test plan

You can use a saved test plan, or create from scratch.

First, provide basic instructions to help testers get in the right frame of mind. For example, "pretend you're shopping for a birthday gift for your mother", or "you took photos at a party and you want to share them with your friends".



Drag and drop 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."

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 8. Review and Launch Test
Review your test details before launching your test.


When you're ready, click Launch Test or Schedule Test to launch at a later time.
