Virtual & Augmented Reality Application Testing

We have been testing Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) apps since 2012–giving us more than a decade of experience.

Understanding how to test Mixed Reality applications goes beyond simply testing the functionality of the application. At PLUS QA, we recreate optimal VR & AR testing environments to accurately reproduce user scenarios. We want to ensure your app’s users remain fully immersed in the reality you created–and not pulled from that reality by a critical flaw.

Testing New and Emerging Technologies

Today, nearly half of all Americans use Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, or Augmented Reality devices and applications. These emerging technologies are as exciting as they are challenging to test for quality assurance.

Making sure XR experiences work as expected across all types of devices and headsets is critical before you release an application to the public. That’s why at PLUS QA we support testing across various iOS and Android devices and test apps end-to-end to guarantee everything works as designed.

The Reality of Testing

App testing on VR and AR devices is inevitably more complex than manual testing on phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop browsers. VR now includes full-body immersive experiences that can introduce the risk of physical discomfort and consequences such as headaches, motion sickness, and eye strain.

To prevent this kind of discomfort, we perform thorough accessibility testing and verify that users with physical, visual, hearing, or cognitive impairments can comfortably enjoy your immersive technology application or experience.

We also create custom test cases and detailed checklists based on user workflows. Then we thoroughly test all features to make sure they work as designed. We want to make sure your Mixed Reality device or application is ready for prime time.
