Pixel-based image comparison is not enough

Visual testing is a natural next step for any organization that wants to deliver flawless user experiences every time. But as you accelerate releases and increase the assertion complexity of regression testing, pixel-based image comparison simply cannot deliver enough coverage and insights to maintain quality at speed. With Sauce Labs, understand exactly how code changes impact the UI visually and accelerate debugging with end-to-end feedback.


Simplify UI testing

Replace hundreds of assertions with a single visual snapshot. Reduce the time spent writing and maintaining test scripts, dramatically simplifying test automation.


Increase UI coverage

Test both the functional and visual aspects of the UI. Cover areas that traditional functional testing cannot, increasing coverage and confidence.


Deliver a flawless experience

Perform UI tests across multiple browsers, devices, and operating environments. Spot inconsistencies and ensure users have the visual experience your designers intended.

End-to-end testing

Advanced debugging tools for cross-browser testing

Eliminate UI bugs

Harness the power of automation to test UIs across different browsers and resolutions. Spot UI inconsistencies and fix them early in the development cycle.

Programmatic data comparison

Programmatic comparisons

Leverage DOM snapshots to inform page comparisons, allowing for more accuracy in identifying & troubleshooting true regressions, plus helping to eliminate false positives.

Front-end component

Leverage existing tests

Maximize your investment in test automation and increase your test coverage by performing both visual and functional testing in the same test run.

Sauce Visual and Storybook

Instantly get automated visual testing across your React, Vue, and Angular components

Automatically pull component states from Storybook and use them as visual test cases for automated visual testing; no coding required.

Visual component testing

Continuous testing at every stage

Test on every commit

Quickly and frequently test individual UI components. Run visual component testing on every commit to get fast feedback you need in the early stages of the development cycle.

No test scripts needed

No test scripts needed

Integrate with Storybook and automatically use components and their states as tests cases without having to write or maintain any automated tests scripts.

Live testing real device coverage

Test UIs in isolation

Control the data passed into UI components and interact with them in isolation, improving consistency and reliability.

Additional features


Smart hybrid diff

Compare more than just pixels. Sauce Visual compares both screenshots & DOM snapshots to show changes.


Interaction testing API

Click buttons, fill out forms, and get your components into the proper visual state to test directly in your Storybook stories.


Storybook + General Runner

Connect to Storybook or a custom component library and automatically have the UI states pulled in as a baseline.


Integrations: CI & PR statuses

Get continuous visual test automation when integrating Sauce Visual into your development process.


Baseline branching and merging

Save time and optimize your workflow by automatically pulling in the initial baseline from the base branch and automatically accepting updates when merging to or from the base branch.



Visual tests will automatically run in parallel when executing more than one test.
