Provide Android 8 and 9 Emulators with up-to-date Google Play Services

As also mentioned here in my comment:
https://saucelabs.ideas.aha.io/ideas/EMUSIM-I-69

It would be great if the play services in all the emulators could get another update to version 15. There was a major update in April this year from 12.x to 15.x.:
https://developers.google.com/android/guides/releases

Our app always displays a popup that it needs up-to-date play services to work correctly. That is an obstacle in our appium tests.

And in addition support of newer android os versions like 8 and 9 would be awesome.

Best regards,
Hajo

    Hi Chandra,

    Is the mid December for Android 8 emulator support on schedule?

    Also, the new Appium 1.10.0 is already out. Would you add that to your platform soon?

    Thanks,
    Wayne
