Android 8 - locator changes

Hi All,

While executing automation scripts on devices with Android OS 8 (Oreo), I noticed that there is a change in locators. especially locators which has text attribute are having different value in Android OS 8.

For eg:
Password text field in registration and Login: text attribute value is “blank” in Android OS 6 and where as value is “Password” in Android OS 8 devices. Like this I found many differences in my application

Could you please through some light on this ?

Thanks !
