What’s new in the release?
- Burst from enterprise lab to cloud devices
If you have an Amazon account, you can now use an on-premise connector to expand your device lab to AWS Device Farm.

In addition to replay, tests can now be also recorded on the device's browser - Safari for iOS devices, and Chrome for Android devices.
You can use Spy and Highlight actions on test objects in your hybrid app.
Mobile Center on Linux servers now also supports record and replay of tests on native device browsers.

- Latency display
Mobile Center displays the latency between the client and the connector to which the device is connected. You can now optimize the performance of the remote screen viewer by selecting devices with lower latency.
- Crowd testing
Mobile Center now includes a crowd testing solution, so that you can test your app with a wider variety of people, in different real-world situations, and on a larger variety of hardware and software combinations than are possible in-house.
