  viewport: "1920x1080",
  os: "MacOS",
  device: "Cloud agent",
  customTags: "Cloud, DarkTheme, Auth",
  diffTollerancePercent: 1,

Allows to set options for taking screenshot. All options from screenshot command are also supported more details

Viewport is taken from Cypress.config(), if option is not set
