Have you been in a situation when some cases are impossible to test because Appium doesn't have support? Appium is improving continuously and release of espresso-driver is an example of this.

There are a lot of capabilities in this driver, one of which is the ability to call platform methods on elements via backdoor without modifying Application under test. This opens the door of infinite possibilities. What it means is, if the Android platform supports some actions or properties on an element, then Appium will support it out of the box.

For an automation engineer, that's a very powerful addition. I was fortunate enough to work on this feature and would like to showcase what are the various tricky cases where this feature can be applied. There will be code, there will be real examples shown with a sample android app.

As a result, users will be able to automate some of the trickiest cases in Android automation by hacking into Appium. They will also gain internal knowledge of how Appium work from the person who is a committer to Appium codebase.
