Offline mode for Android Emulators

Currently there is no way on Sauce Labs to throttle or cut off the internet access to an emulator.

This could be done via a capability or a custom command. This would be similar to the current custom commands that exist for Chrome see here.

This would help customers with edge cases that need internet off or throttled at some speed.

    Hi Chandra,

    For our Hybrid App on Android, we want to simulate that the device going offline. How can we achieve this functionality?

    Hi Venkata,

    Nice to hear from you. Are you referring to network throttling while testing native mobile applications on emulators? For mobile web tests you can use extended debugging on emulators.
