Hi Hemlata, No, Selenium Webdriver doesn't support mobile automation directly which means you cannot automate mobile browser/native apps just by using selenium jars. You need to use other open-source tools like Appium, IOS-Driver, Selendroid etc. These tools drive IOS and Android apps using the WebDriver JSON wire protocol i.e. you can use the same webdriver API to automate mobile apps by using these tools. They act as a bridge between Selenium Webdriver code and mobile app.
