Test automation on Windows and Mac native applications

We are trying to test our desktop application for Mac and Windows using Appium and Sauce Labs. Appium testing for native OS applications is in beta stage. We already have some tests running fine locally. The problem is that the capabilities we use are not supported: "Unsupported OS/browser/version/device combo: OS: 'Mac', Browser: 'unspecified', Version: '10.13.', Device: 'Mac'" by Sauce Labs.

Caps used:


exports.mac01 = {
browserName: '',
'appium-version': '1.6',
platformName: 'Mac',
platformVersion: '10.13.2',
deviceName: 'Mac',
app: undefined// will be set later



I was hoping that testing on native OS apps would be available in the future maybe? Could it be that it is in development at the moment? Or maybe there is a special program we can enroll in? This would help test native applications on Mac and Windows.
