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 and it runs properly in web browser.

But, when I run it for the mobile device it gives me an error.

I'm sharing with you my code and my browser stack video link and also the console error I am getting. Kindly look at it once and help me how we solve this issue?

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:[email protected]/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 showing in the mobile device when 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()
  File "C:\Users\tech-pc-11\PycharmProject\venv\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\webdriver.py", line 428, in find_element_by_link_text
    return self.find_element(by=By.LINK_TEXT, value=link_text)
  File "C:\Users\tech-pc-11\PycharmProject\venv\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\webdriver.py", line 976, in find_element
    return self.execute(Command.FIND_ELEMENT, {
  File "C:\Users\tech-pc-11\PycharmProject\venv\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\webdriver.py", line 321, in execute
  File "C:\Users\tech-pc-11\PycharmProject\venv\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\errorhandler.py", line 242, in check_response
    raise exception_class(message, screen, stacktrace)
selenium.common.exceptions.NoSuchElementException: Message: no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"link text","selector":"Litter-Robot Connect"}
  • kindly tell me what is procedure helps me to run the same script on both desktop and mobile. Jan 21, 2021 at 13:43
  • 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.
