    + 1 vote. This would be extremely helpful, since Espresso engine provides a lot of things unavailable for UIAutomator2.

    Please support Appium's espresso driver in a future release. Using UIAutomator2 is very slow and buggy (especially when finding elements in the app) whereas with ['automationName'] = 'Espresso' you can call public methods within the app directly. It's much faster and more reliable.
