Open Mobile Browsers on Android 13

Currently I’m getting an error when I open Chrome Browsers on my Pixel 4 phone(Android 13)
ChromeDriver on my phone asks for 104.0.5112.97 however I can’t find it. I tried using version 104.0.5112.79 and 105.0.5195.19 but still failed

Katalon version: 8.4.1
Appium version: 1.22.2
Chrome version on phone: 104.0.5112.97

Please does anyone know why?

@duyluong

Can you please help me?

Can you list out the steps you took for us to try to reproduce your issue?

Step 1: I download ChromeDriver from the link ChromeDriver - WebDriver for Chrome - Downloads
Step 2: Then I put in ChromeDriver into the folder: C:\Users\nttung\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\appium\node_modules\appium-chromedriver\chromedriver\win
Step 3: Open Katalon → Tools → UpdateWebDrivers → Chrome → wait for the update to finish
Step 4: Run the script (in that image)

I can’t even open chrome yet
With Android 12, Chrome works properly

Hi @thanh.tung.170861 can you please upload the full log of the Log Viewer, you will see some line showing “Caused by…something”. That will explain the root cause for investigation.

Hi @khang.dang
I send you 2 logs that
EventLog.txt (38.9 KB)
Console.txt (50.2 KB)

I read the log and see “Please check the server log for more details”, I don’t know where to get server log

Hi @thanh.tung.170861

Base on the log, the chrome driver for android (104.0.5112.79) is not equal to chrome version for android (104.0.5112.97).

If you run the automatic update from Katalon, only version 104.0.5112.79 is downloaded

It means Katalon not yet support 104.0.5112.97 driver yet for auto update to run the browser. I also search on Chrome driver page but couldn’t see it too. Only information can found here Chrome Releases: Chrome for Android Update

You should use

WebUI.openBrowser()

instead of using Mobile.startExistingApp()

For more details, please refer to my tutorial here: Testing Web App on Mobile Browsers | Katalon Docs
