We’re happy to announce that ErliBird (Now BetaTesting.com) and Instabug have joined forces to make it easier than ever to recruit bug testers and get actionable bug testing results in as fast as one hour.
On ErliBird, we have created a new Instant Bug Test package, which makes it easy to link ErliBird and Instabug. This new test provides a great way to recruit targeted testers from ErliBird to conduct on-demand bug testing for iOS and Android apps. By integrating the Instabug SDK in your app and connecting to ErliBird, your testers will be able to submit bugs directly in your app, with additional contextual information to help you discover and squash important bugs.
The Instant Bug Test (designed exclusively for Instabug customers) is inexpensive and you’ll typically start to see results within just 1 hour of starting the test once your company is approved for self-service submission. When planning your timeline, note that we will manually review your company’s first test submissions, which can take 3-24 hours. Once you have a clear understanding of how to design bug tests using our tool, we’ll activate your account for completely self-service submissions.
In addition to the Instant Bug Test, ErliBird is also offering Instabug clients that require more in-depth testing a 15% discount on any ErliBird Beta Testing package. Just contact ErliBird and mention the Instabug discount. Likewise, Instabug is providing ErliBird customers with a 15% discount on all paid plans.
What is possible with the Instant Bug Test?
In an Exploratory test, your testers will explore and report bugs they discover, without any specific guidance from you. This is the easiest and fastest way to get started with an Instant Bug Test with minimal setup. You can optionally provide a basic description of what you’d like testers to focus on, along with a list of known bugs and issues to avoid.
QA / Functional Test Cases
Run a functional QA test with set of test cases to test specific functionality and features within your app. When users run into an unexpected or failed result, they’ll submit a bug report detailing the issue. Mix functional test cases with UX or UI based survey questions for a robust and powerful test.
UX Feedback (with Bug Reporting)
Design a custom test process for your testers and create a set of tasks and survey-based questions for your testers to follow. Whenever a tester runs into a bug or issue during this process, they will submit a formal bug report using Instabug. You can decide how general or specific you’d like the test process to be: For example, you can provide only a few high-level instructions if you’d like (e.g. register, complete your profile, etc), or you can provide very specific test cases (e.g. Click on the package icon. Do you see an image of the package?).
How ErliBird + Instabug Integration Works
During the test setup process on ErliBird, you’ll be given a WebHook URL. Within Instabug (Settings->Integrations->WebHook), create the WebHook to send your bug reports to ErliBird. See this training video to learn how.
Instant Bug Test FAQ
What is the Instant Bug Test?
The Instant Bug Test allows you to recruit real-world bug testers to test your app and generate bug reports and feedback. Once your company is approved for self-service submission (without ErliBird review), you’ll be able to launch tests on-demand and start to get results within 1 hour. Your test can be Exploratory (users explore the app on their own to discover and report bugs on their own), Functional (driven by formal tasks and test-cases) or a mix thereof.
Can we customize our test process?
Yes, you can design your own set of tasks, questions, and formal test cases.
Do we need to design our own test?
No, if you’d like, you can use our Exploratory Bug Testing template which requires absolutely zero setup of the test design process. Users will explore your app on their own to discover and report bugs they encounter.
Can we target a specific device or operating system version?
At the launch of the Instant Bug Test, we’re allowing for some customization of operating system versions and device types (e.g. Most popular, older phones, etc). Shortly, we’ll be launching the ability for full customization of the operating system versions, device manufacturers, device models, and more. What’s better, these are not lab-based devices or even cloud devices. These are real world users that own and use these devices every day.
Need More Robust Beta Testing?

Need something more in-depth? We also offer our full Beta Testing product with Instabug integration. Our beta tests provide quality in-depth beta testing and user experience feedback from targeted real-world users over 1-week test iterations. We provide a Project Manager and provide our industry expertise to design a successful beta process. While our new Instant Bug Test is a single session test process (i.e. testers use your app in one sitting to explore and report bugs over 30-60 minutes), our Beta Testing process is perfect for tests that last days or even weeks, and include multiple sets of tasks/questions during this testing process.
This makes it possible to run tests that match your real-world organic usage scenario. For example, need 100 testers to play your new Steam game together and provide feedback on the experience? No problem. Need 50 testers to use your new News Reader app each day for a week? Solved. Need users to track their sleep with your sleep tracking app and help hunt down all of the bugs and technical issues? You get the idea (we can do that).
Instabug is a comprehensive bug reporting and in-app feedback SDK that is helping companies worldwide build better apps. With just one line of code, beta testers and users can report bugs and provide developers with detailed feedback by just shaking their phones. The level of details Instabug’s SDK grabs with each bug report attracted tens of thousands of companies like Lyft, T-Mobile and eBay to rely on Instabug to enhance their app quality and iterate faster.
