Korean messaging app LINE announced a one-year partnership with Baidu Cloud Crowdsource Testing Platform, which will test the adaptive problems of LINE’s apps on smartphones produced by domestic manufacturers, especially those based on Android system (report in Chinese).

Similar to Applover, Baidu Cloud Crowdsource Testing Platform is essentially a community that crowdsources Android users and phones to create an organic testing platform that grants developers access to hundreds of different Android phones as well as live testers.
