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)
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.
Is this request for a VM or for Emulator/Simulator?
It is for Emulators/Simulators.
But i believe it could be useful for web-based applications too
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.
