You must be thinking HOW?

Don’t worry Avinash here to help you out with this amazing cypress feature.

Cypress is an open-source framework for testing web apps from start to finish. It lets developers write tests in JavaScript to simulate how users interact with their web apps and check how they work. Cypress has a lot of APIs and a test runner that is already built in. This makes it easy to write, run, and debug tests.

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams is a platform for teamwork and communication that was made by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft 365 suite of productivity tools and is meant to bring people, teams, and organisations together so they can work well together and talk to each other.

Integration of Microsoft Teams with Cypress made the testing process more clear. Notifications and updates about a test run can be sent automatically to the right people on the team.

Because Cypress works with Microsoft Teams, you can see the results of your tests right in your Microsoft Teams channels.
