Testing an Android APK Remotely on Note9

Do you need access to a Note9, Galaxy S9 or Tab S4 test device, but don’t know how to go about getting one? In this webinar, lead engineer, Vasu Ramachandraiah, will demonstrate how to reserve a remote U.S. device model, how to upload and debug an APK, plus how to capture high-res screenshots and record a video using Cloud Device Farm.

Cloud Device Farm is a free service, only available for Samsung Developer Program members. Unfortunately, playing Fortnite remotely on Note9 is not supported (apologies to your teenage kids!), so if they want the amazing Galaxy Skin, they’ll need to buy a real device. Galaxy Note9, Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Tab S4 are available for purchase through the Developer Discount Program (U.S. mailing address required).

When: Thursday, October 04, 2018
11:00 am to 12:00 pm PDT
(6:00 pm to 7:00 pm GMT)
Target audience: Android developers
