I want to run a selenium script on mobile devices. for this purpose, I am using the Browserstack website. now the problem is I have written a script it runs in browser invocation right .but when I run in the mobile device it gives me an error. I will share with you my code and my browser stack video link and also show you my console error. kindly look at it once and tell me how we solve this query.

Code of my script :

 import time
    from selenium import webdriver
    from selenium.webdriver import ActionChains
    from selenium.webdriver.support.select import Select

BROWSERSTACK_URL = 'https://muhammadyousufkh1:Vs1JXyvaPcPzhEK8mqmy@hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub'

desired_cap = {
"os_version" : "7.0",
"device" : "Samsung Galaxy S8",

"real_mobile" : "true", "browserstack.local" : "false" }

driver = webdriver.Remote(

action = ActionChains(driver)
action.move_to_element(driver.find_element_by_xpath("//header//strong[contains(text(),'Litter Robot')]")).perform()

action.move_to_element(driver.find_element_by_link_text("Litter-Robot Connect")).click().perform()

dropdown = Select(driver.find_element_by_id("input-option240"))
dropdown.select_by_visible_text("Grey (SKU: LR3C-1200 )")

print("***********************Scrolled down starts***************")
for i in range(10):
    print("scrolling time: " + str(i))

print("*************************scrolling down end**********************")

print("**************************************Scrolled up starts****************")

for i in range(10):
    print("scrolling time: - " + str(i))

print("**************************************Scrolled up End ****************")

Error show in the mobile device when a running script ;

File "C:\Users\tech-pc-11\PycharmProject\catt.py", line 26, in <module>
    action.move_to_element(driver.find_element_by_link_text("Litter-Robot Connect")).click().perform()

  • If you are able to run the example from BrowserStack then I would double check the selectors using Remote Debugging if you can get your hands on an Android device. – kirbycope Jan 28 at 6:03
