Now you can leverage LambdaTest Automated Screenshots API and generate multiple screenshots for a URL of your choice, and that also across multiple desktop and mobile browsers.

Boosting Daily-Basis Productivity With Screenshot API

Delivering a cross browser compatibility testing tool, we understand the pressure involved in narrow release windows. Every minute may seem like an hour as a release window draws near, and this is when convenience comes as a comfort.

LambdaTest Screenshot API offers you the convenience of capturing headless screenshots in bulk on multiple (OS + browser) combinations, without even logging into the LambdaTest platform. Simply, generate a JSON file into your favorite API development environment, including the relevant configurations needed for running screenshot testing on LambdaTest, invoke the API and you are done!

Not only can you invoke the tests on LambdaTest but you can also download these bulk screenshots as a zip file. You can even define a particular screen resolution to perform cross browser testing. In case you wish to stop any screenshot test midway, you can do that too!

Perform automated screenshot testing for locally hosted web pages or web applications with basic authentication enabled. Invoke a callback URL and send the screenshots to a particular IP or URL, if you wish to share the test results with your colleagues.

LambdaTest Screenshot API would allow you to maintain a daily check on your web application & paddle faster through your release cycles by evaluating your code changes, prior to pushing them to production.
