How to simulate SMS and GSM Calls on android Emulators using Katalon Studio?

  1. GSM Call - Appium
  2. Send SMS - Appium

I want to perform these actions on my android emulator using katalon studio
Incoming calls , outgoing calls, Call Accept, Call decline, send SMS on Android Emulator

Please help on this how we can perform these action in Katalon studio ?

@Chris_Trevarthen @ThanhTo @devalex88 Any inputs ?

Hi @shrikalase,

You should be able to make any of the Appium calls in your Katalon tests like so:

import io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver

AppiumDriver<?> driver = MobileDriverFactory.getDriver()
driver.makeGsmCall("5551234567", GsmCallActions.CALL);

driver.sendSMS("555-123-4567", "Hey lol");

You might see the function names makeGsmCall and sendSMS underlined in Katalon Studio, but you can ignore that.

Hope this helps,
