NOTE : If we want to run the above test case at the same time on different browsers. How can we handle it in robot framework (Is it possible to integrate with sauce labs / browser stack). Currently, I am passing the variable browser from command line. eg : robot --variable BROWSER:Chrome Youtube.robot

But I want to run it on different browsers at once.

I use Browserstack (not with RF), but let's see how you can do it. I believe similar approach might be possible with Sauce Labs.

First I need some variables:

*** Variables ***
${base_url}                    https://www.google.com/
${os}                          windows
${os_version}                  10
${browser}                     chrome
${browser_version}             84
${browserstack_username}       username
${browserstack_accesskey}      secret

You especially choose what OS and browser you want to run your tests in Browserstack: ${os}, ${os_version}, ${browser}, and ${browser_version}.

Currently, I am passing the variable browser from command line.

You can keep doing it with the above-mentioned four variables.

Then you need to open a browser in Browserstack:

*** Keywords ***
Open Browser In Browserstack
    ${remoteUrl}                Set Variable        http://${browserstack_username}:${browserstack_accesskey}@hub.browserstack.com:80/wd/hub
    &{desired_capabilities}      Create Dictionary   os=${os}     os_version=${os_version}     browser=${browser}   browser_version=${browser_version}
    Open Browser      ${baseUrl}    remote_url=${remote_url}     desired_capabilities=${desired_capabilities}

And so you can then put it all together:

*** Settings ***
Library    SeleniumLibrary      

*** Variables ***
${base_url}                    https://www.google.com/
${os}                          windows
${os_version}                  10
${browser}                     chrome
${browser_version}             84
${browserstack_username}       username
${browserstack_accesskey}      secret

*** Keywords ***
Open Browser In Browserstack
    ${remoteUrl}                Set Variable        http://${browserstack_username}:${browserstack_accesskey}@hub.browserstack.com:80/wd/hub
    &{desired_capabilities}      Create Dictionary   os=${os}     os_version=${os_version}     browser=${browser}   browser_version=${browser_version}
    Open Browser      ${baseUrl}    remote_url=${remote_url}     desired_capabilities=${desired_capabilities}

*** Test Cases *** 
Browserstack
    Open Browser In Browserstack    

When I navigate to Browserstack, I can see my test:

enter image description here

I think this what I've shown is really all you need, but:

to run the above test case at the same time

well, I feel you can use what's already available, e.g. pabot. I have never tried this, so you can give it a try and let me know in the comment section if it works.
