[Android] Ability to select only devices with/without Google Play Services in automated tests using a capability

If we want to execute using random devices as usual sometimes e.g Huawei Mate Pro 30 is taken and when that happens, as it does not have google play services the tests breaks..

We would like to be able to differentiate to avoid that those devices get selected when we don't want to. The same goes for opposite scenario in cases where only devices without Google Play Services are to be selected.

    This is extremely important to avoid false negatives. It happens a lot my framework that wastes time (and tries) connecting to a device with no Play Services. It is by far one of the worst things here.
