Appium: Unable to automate Google Home app using appium


I tried to run Google home app with the below desired capabilities:

desired_caps = 
   "platformName": "android",
   "platformVersion": "6.0",   
   "deviceName": "ZX1D64RN88",    
   "appPackage": "",    
   "appActivity": "",   
   "autoGrantPermissions": "true",    

These are the activities I found in Google home app:

I tried to start the Google home app with all these activities. But no one worked fine for me.

I tried with adb command also. But it also didn't work.

This is the command I used to start the app using adb:

adb shell am start -W -n -S

I got the below error while running with adb:


Starting: Intent { }

java.lang.SecurityException: Permission Denial: starting Intent { flg=0x10000000 } from null (pid=21596, uid=2000) not exported from uid 13189

at android.os.Parcel.readException(

at android.os.Parcel.readException(






at Method)

Can any one suggest how to automate Google Home app using appium?
