The following bug in Android has a solution in Chrome 65:https://github.com/appium/appium/issues/10204 https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=805014
Hi, thank you for reaching out. I will review the details and get back to you.
Product Manager - Emulators and Simulators
Any update on this? We've had to disable our mobile Chrome test suite pending this upgrade, so a timeline would be deeply appreciated.
Sorry about the delay. I will get back to you before the EOD today.
Which version of Android are you using?
Also, which Emulator did you use?
Android 6.0. Here's the config that's being applied:
"deviceName": "Android Emulator",
Two-and-a-half months later and still seeing Android emulators equipped with Chrome 64. Sauce Labs Android VMs are now 3 major versions behind our user-base, and we've had to disable all our Android tests due to the StackOverflow bug. Switching to real-device testing, as has been suggested, is not an option for our testing workflow, and I'm really disappointed in the lack of attention and support on this from Sauce Labs.
Would appreciate an update. Thanks.
We noticed that Appium fixed the issue 10204. Can you please try with Appium 1.8.1 and let us know if you are still running into the problem? Please set appiumVersion desired capability to "1.8.1" to use Appium 1.8.1.
Thanks for the suggestion, but Appium 1.8.1 doesn't appear to include the fix (PR #160). Based on commit history, it looks like the 1.11.0 release would be the nearest Appium version that does.I did try running with 1.8.1 and the infinite-recursion crash still occurs. And specifying appiumVersion "1.11.0" in desiredCapabilities fails immediately, so I assume it isn't available in Sauce Labs yet.
Thanks for trying with 1.8.1. I will check a few things and get back to you.
Chrome version 67 is currently supported on Emulators. Closing idea. Work is underway to improve our delivery of new versions of Chrome.
