Devs can now optimize apps for Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 on cloud hardware


Last updated: March 7th, 2022 at 14:29 UTC+02:00

Samsung has made it possible for Android developers to test their apps on the Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 lineups even if they don’t have the hardware at hand. The company has now added these new flagship devices to its Remote Test Lab (RTL) environment.

RTL is a cloud-based Samsung service that allows Android app developers to install and test APKs before releasing the apps on the Galaxy Store.

Not to be confused with software emulation, the Remote Test Lab environment offers developers remote access to real hardware — in this case, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 — via cloud technology.

The service is available for free. To access it, customers need a Samsung Developers account and a machine that has Java Runtime Environment 7 (or later) and Java Web Start. Samsung Developers get 20 credits per day, which they can spend in exchange for 5 hours of remote access to cloud-based mobile hardware daily.

Making life easier for devs while raising the quality standards

The Remote Test Lab platform isn’t new and has served Samsung Developers for a few years now. Nevertheless, the list keeps growing. The Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 series are the latest devices to be supported, and they join other phones and tablets, including foldable and Fan Edition devices.

Perhaps the majority of Samsung customers — who aren’t developers — won’t ever hear about Remote Test Lab. Not when buying a new Galaxy device or reading the user manual. Even so, thanks to RTL, customers should enjoy apps that are better optimized for the Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 family of devices, so it’s a win-win situation.
