How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Enable WinAppDriver for Xbox and Mobile

Right now WinAppDriver only works on desktop.

Getting these capabilities across the Windows ecosystem would fulfill the promise of a unified Windows. Making it possible for us to write tests, and code once and have it being tested in an autonomous way. So that in theory, our applications could report and find bugs for us.

Before our users find them.

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to the progress you're doing :D

        I'm willing to spend my team's resources for refactoring the WinAppDriver for xBox. Whom can we talk @Microsoft about third-party contributions into the WinAppDriver?

        This is long overdue! MLB releases dozens of apps for the UWP xBox and mobile, but no functional test automation solutions available for CI/CD :( Is there any way to open source the WinAppDriver, so community can re-write it for UWP xBox and mobile apps?
