Unable to test native features on ionic view pro App

I have built an app with ionic 3 and angular 4 typescript, I am trying to use ionic cordova native plugins like LocaNotifications, NativeGeocoder etc. It gives me no error but does not work at all in ionic view uploaded app. These native plugins works fine when I build my app and use the .apk file on a real android device.
Someone’s help is highly appreciated. My quick question is whether can we test native plugins in an ionic app using ionic view pro app or it always requires a real device?
Kindly note that I have ionic pro starter free account.
Thanks and regards
