It’s a huge waste of time to build an APK and send it to the QA team and testers while developing an Android app. In addition to this, testing each version, adding a feature, controlling it and reporting test results are difficult processes with traditional build methods. Imagine that the test team is downloading an APK from FTP or mail, reporting all bugs and defects. I’m talking about searching, downloading and reporting an APK like App_20160703_login_implemented.apk. Consider that, developer building an APK for every bug and sending it to QA. Here is a process that increases the workload of team.
