As a test automation engineer i want to set date time of test environment (Android emulator/IOS simulator etc) so I can verify time\date based behavior of application (remainders, greetings etc)

    This is something that would be especially awesome for Simulators because simulators use the System Date/Time.

     

    For Emulators there is a way to use ADB to set the emulator time (because emulators are VMs and do not use system time)

     

    Apparently this feature is already a thing for Desktop VMs and Browsers, but for Emulator/Simulator this is a problem.

    Hi,

     

    It is for Emulators/Simulators.

    But i believe it could be useful for web-based applications too

    Is this request for a VM or for Emulator/Simulator?

    Hi guys.

    It's looks like you can just set up vm with desired date\time. I propose to use Desired Capabilities as input for desired date\time. Same as for time-zone  capability.

     

    Best regards
