Support disableWindowAnimation capability

Animations are known to make tests more flaky and slower to execute.

In some cases it can even completely block the automation.

Since appium 1.9.1 the "disableWindowAnimation" capability is available on Android for UiAutomator and UiAutomator2. I have tested it locally and it's truly amazing. It would be great if that was supported on SauceLabs as well !

    Hi Kevin, I got a chance to discuss the feature request with my team. We should be able to support this feature around mid December. Will that work for you?

    Hi Kevin,


    My apologies, we need some extra time for a few high priority tasks and unfortunately it will probably be end of January before we can add this support.

    Ok, thanks for letting me know.

    Well that's still a date I can work with, I just hope this doesn't get postponed again and again !

    Have a nice day.

    Hello Chandra, and happy new year ;)

    I just wanted to check if the dev team is still aligned with the end of january ETA you gave me ?

    This is definitely still something I am rather eager to see implemented.

    Thanks

    Hi Kevin,

    Happy New Year! sorry to disappoint you. Unfortunately, we had to address some critical tasks and had to push this change out once again. I am hopeful that we can get done with the change in February.
