I'm currently trying to automate an Android application that allows the user to take photos from within the app by utilizing the system's built in camera app. The phone is a Samsung S10e with Android 10 attached via USB (Ranorex v9.3.2). I already learned that without instrumentation the camera might not be automated properly (old post from 2014: to-test-camera-featute-is-available-t5758.html).
I also found the "Android OS automation" flag in the settings and enabled it (https://www.ranorex.com/help/latest/web ... stem-apps/). I was able to sometimes get a snapshot of the camera app, but I was not able to interact with it in any way (timeout).
Is there any workaround that might be used to trigger a photo? I was thinking about using a "raw" touch-action at specific x-/y-coordinates without any os-element being used.
Many thanks and best regards,
Mobile Testing, Android App Testing.
