See what's new in Perfecto 23.14 (released on November 12, 2023):
New devices in the public cloud
Perfecto's public cloud now includes a host of new devices. Among the latest additions are iPhone 15, Google Pixel 8, Samsung Galaxy A24, and Samsung Galaxy S23. Some earlier iOS and Android devices were added as well. This update ensures a more inclusive and versatile cloud experience for our public cloud users.
Scriptless Web enhancements
Support for flows
Scriptless Web now lets you create different flows for a test in Advanced Mode. A flow is an alternative step sequence. Flows provide a quick way of enabling or disabling steps or modifying the logical flow of steps.
After creating one or more flows, you can select any of the flows to use when you run the test. You can also select a flow when adding a test to a job.
Watch this short video to see how to work with flows. For details, see Flows.
With support for macOS Sonoma, macOS Catalina is now deprecated and, based on our suspension of support policy for desktop web operating systems, will be End of Life (EOL) by end of 2023. Devices running Catalina will no longer be available in Perfecto.
For details about the Perfecto support policy, see Suspension of support policy | Desktop web OS.

Perfecto Resource Center
To enhance access to the latest release highlights and, where applicable, onboarding material, Perfecto now includes a dedicated Resource Center for quicker and more prominent navigation. You can access the Resource Center by clicking the lightbulb button on the far right of the header area.
