My Clusters on Testdroid Cloud

Hi all,

We’ve just released the latest version of Testdroid Cloud UI. There are new stuff like My Clusters and other great new features!

My Clusters was implemented to enable customers testing their apps only on devices selected by customers and omitting others from the test runs. You can build your own device cluster from our over 100 real Android phones based on for example OpenGL version, OS version, screen sizes if those are the characteristics that you need to focus on. And that’s not all! Every single device is also described by its market coverage. So now every customer is getting exact info: what percentage of most used Android devices is covered by his cluster!

How to start?

Remember, that creating your own cluster is necessary to pull test into Testdroid Cloud. As starting free user you are obtaining 100 free runs, so it would be to less to pull test on all available devices.

After logging into,  you can choose My Clusters in the upper right corner

Example of already created list of clusters is shown below:

My Cluster view has following attributes:

  • Cluster name – you can change it whenever you want to; clusters have unique IDs so you can create clusters with the same name,
  • Creation time,
  • Number of devices – just for quick reference how big is your cluster,
  • That tricky Coverage market – check how efficient is your cluster,
  • Edit Cluster,
  • Delete Button

But I want to have my own new cluster!

It is easy. Just type in the name of your cluster into Name edit text field and click on Create cluster button. That’s it! Now you can edit your cluster as you wish.

General overview

In My Clusters table, choose Edit cluster in row describing your new cluster.

We can divide the given view of My Clusters into 4 sections:

  • section A – This is a place for tags describing used filters (filters are described in next paragraph)
  • section B – after all edits to your cluster, you will be informed that everything went right
  • section C – list of devices already added to your cluster
  • section D – list of all available devices without those already added to your cluster

Adding and removing devices

Below every device image, you are able to make quick operation:

  • ‘Add to cluster’ – available below devices in D section


  • ‘Remove’ – available below devices in C section

Even if you decided to totally change your cluster, you can delete all devices just by clicking on Remove all visible devices in upper part of section C. But be careful – use those options with caution – there won’t be any confirmation window before e.g. removing device from cluster.

Using filters

There are very useful filters to choose suitable devices for your tests. For example if you need to test your app on all devices with API level higher than 10 (Android 2.3.3 or later), bluetooth 3.0 and internal storage higher or equal to 2GB. Just check the right properties in filters and here you are – the list of devices, which are ready to be add to your specific cluster.

All chosen filters are visible also as tags in A section of My Clusters view. To delete them, just click on Clear all filters.
