Feature testing is the software development process of testing multiple variations of a feature to determine which is best for the users. You can find out what variation of a feature will be most successful by conducting feature tests on your apps.
How Do Feature Tests Work?
Feature tests are used to compare two or more variations of a variable. They're similar to A/B/n tests in that they allow you to control whether a particular variation is on or off. Feature tests are essential for testing and optimizing new product concepts, as well as adjusting existing sites that have been in production for a while.
By running feature-based tests, we can accumulate metrics and analytics about how visitors engage with your website or application. We can then use this data to determine whether the feature leads to positive or negative behavior. At the same time, we can also determine which of multiple configurations of the feature is most effective.
The Value Of Feature Tests
Feature tests allow you to validate whether the features are a good fit for your business. By creating a test, you can enable a specific set of visitors to access the feature while disabling it for a second group.
Another way to test a feature is to create a variety of variations. That way it will be possible to determine the best experience for your customers.
Feature testing is a particularly useful approach to uncovering bugs in the early stages of development. By wrapping new features in feature flags, you can quickly rollback any bugs without a code deploy.
For long term features, you can perform multiple feature test runs to determine the optimal performance configuration for them over their lifetime.
