I want to use Appium with Android studio. Especially how to use the Android Driver.

I have read many docs and instructions on how it is supposed to be done. All of which seem to change drastically between releases.

Many recent sites talk about using the Android driver that comes with the Appium rather than the WebDriver. But that means you have to import:

import io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver

But despite having included all that I can find in sites and here the standard includes don’t seen to give access to the driver’s library.

Meaning that I am unable to import anything from the io.* path.

dependencies {

    implementation 'org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-java:3.141.59'

    implementation 'org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-support:3.141.59'

    implementation 'org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-server:3.141.59'


What I think that I need to do is the following:

var driver: WebDriver = AndroidDriver(URL(""), capabilities)

Remove all the selenium dependencies from the project and only use io.appium/java-client dependency

compile group: 'io.appium', name: 'java-client', version: '7.3.0'

Java-client already has selenium dependencies.
