Hi Narendra,

It depends on the functionality of your application. The article which you're referring was just an example to show people, how we can use selenium not only in functional but also in terms of API Testing as well. I can give few scenarios where we can utilize the script

Scenario: Creating multiple users
Given I have installed my app in my mobile phone
When I want to use the app
Then I should register myself from the app
And I should see Home page of my app with some greeting message

To test the above scenario, we need a device to register. What if I want 1000 users to get registered? What if 100000?? So here I'm testing functional and as well performance by automating API and sending requests through code.

Scenario: I need to check the data published from dashboard (web app) should be displayed in mobile apps too.
What are we supposed to do? For sanity check, we can test API response whether we have got the right data or not.

Hope this info helps you.
