  • UI Mode now shows steps, fixtures and attachments:

  • New property testProject.teardown to specify a project that needs to run after this
    and all dependent projects have finished. Teardown is useful to cleanup any resources acquired by this project.

    A common pattern would be a setup dependency with a corresponding teardown:

    // playwright.config.ts
    import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';
    export default defineConfig({
      projects: [
          name: 'setup',
          testMatch: /global.setup\.ts/,
          teardown: 'teardown',
          name: 'teardown',
          testMatch: /global.teardown\.ts/,
          name: 'chromium',
          use: devices['Desktop Chrome'],
          dependencies: ['setup'],
          name: 'firefox',
          use: devices['Desktop Firefox'],
          dependencies: ['setup'],
          name: 'webkit',
          use: devices['Desktop Safari'],
          dependencies: ['setup'],
  • New method expect.configure to create pre-configured expect instance with its own defaults such as timeout and soft.

    const slowExpect = expect.configure({ timeout: 10000 });
    await slowExpect(locator).toHaveText('Submit');
    // Always do soft assertions.
    const softExpect = expect.configure({ soft: true });
  • New options stderr and stdout in testConfig.webServer to configure output handling:

    // playwright.config.ts
    import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';
    export default defineConfig({
      // Run your local dev server before starting the tests
      webServer: {
        command: 'npm run start',
        url: '',
        reuseExistingServer: !process.env.CI,
        stdout: 'pipe',
        stderr: 'pipe',
  • New locator.and() to create a locator that matches both locators.

    const button = page.getByRole('button').and(page.getByTitle('Subscribe'));
  • New events browserContext.on('console') and browserContext.on('dialog') to subscribe to any dialogs
    and console messages from any page from the given browser context. Use the new methods
    and to pin-point event source.

⚠️ Breaking changes

  • npx playwright test no longer works if you install both playwright and @playwright/test. There's no need
    to install both, since you can always import browser automation APIs from @playwright/test directly:

    // automation.ts
    import { chromium, firefox, webkit } from '@playwright/test';
    /* ... */
  • Node.js 14 is no longer supported since it reached its end-of-life on April 30, 2023.

Browser Versions

  • Chromium 114.0.5735.26
  • Mozilla Firefox 113.0
  • WebKit 16.4

This version was also tested against the following stable channels:

  • Google Chrome 113
  • Microsoft Edge 113
