You can now limit the maximum number of device minutes that your AWS Device Farm test runs can use by setting a timeout on each device. You can also request that your maximum timeout be extended beyond the default of 60 minutes, allowing you to run longer workloads on real Android and iOS devices in the AWS Cloud. If execution exceeds your timeout, execution on that device will be forcibly stopped, and partial results will be available if possible.

When scheduling a run, simply drag the slider to your desired timeout, and Device Farm will display the maximum device minutes your run could use. To request an increase to your maximum test duration, you can use the feedback form when scheduling a run from the Console or by contacting us. Get started by visiting the documentation and the AWS Device Farm Console. See our Product Page to learn more about AWS Device Farm.
