Interactive States Not Displaying in Observation Mode

It would be great to be able to see the interaction state when viewing in observation mode.

This came up for my team when usability testing. We were testing mobile interactions (specifically drag/swipe) and the component we were testing used the ‘change to’ interaction on the component level. The participant on their mobile device were able to see the interaction, but for us watching remotely through observation mode (on our desktop), we were not able to see the interactions in real-time. When we’re testing it’s really important to see in real-time what the participant is seeing/doing.

Hi Julie, this is on the roadmap! It is not the top priority at the moment, but it will be available as part of GA or soon after.

Thanks for the request! Great to hear that it will be useful.
