July: Mobile App Testing

July was all about mobile, as we introduced the ability to test mobile apps or games for both Android and iOS devices. This expansion ensures comprehensive testing across the most popular mobile platforms.

October was about giving more to our subscribers. Now, every Userbrain subscription includes an incredible bonus: 100 tests with your own users per month, maximizing the value of our service.

November: Improved Sharing

Video sharing timestamps were added in November 2023.

Sharing recordings became more flexible in November. When sharing a link to a recording, you can now specify a timestamp for the video to start playing, enhancing the convenience and relevance of shared content.

Clips are coming soon, as of December 2023, with the first prototype versions now live.

We’re excited to announce that Clips is on the horizon. This upcoming feature will allow you to easily capture and share key moments from user tests, bringing actionable insights directly to your team.

So, 2023… that’s a wrap!
