  • A build concurrency is the number of builds that can run in parallel at any given time. When additional builds are triggered, they are queued and will wait for the previous one to complete.

  • A test device concurrency determines the number of devices you can use simultaneously. For example, with 5 concurrent devices you can test 5 different device configurations in the same amount of time it would normally take to test 1.

    We measure usage in device hours, which is a calculation of all activities on a device initiated by your test. For example, a 12–minute test suite run on 5 device configurations will consume 60 minutes, or 1 device hour. Time spent downloading apps, processing screenshots, and generating test reports do not count as billable time.

  • For 30 days, you will be able to test your app on more than 450 device configurations. With the trial, you can use 1 device with unlimited test hours.

  • While the monthly credit does not apply toward Visual Studio App Center purchases, you can still use this Azure subscription for billing. You’ll just need to set up a method of payment and remove the $0 spending cap. Learn more about monthly Azure credits for Visual Studio subscribers.
