Appium Toast Message not working with UIAutomator2 for Android

In some Discussions I found that we are able to automate using UIAutomator2. But I tried using the By.xpath("//android.widget.Toast[1]"), nothing worked . Even I tried to get the Xml Page Source . Even in the Page source not able to get the toast information. Whether Appium supports it . Can anyone please help me. So is there any way to identify the Toast Message in Appium

UIAutomation2 can’t find toast . It will work only with Espresso.
Although with some devices it works when we try to find by partial text of toast:

List<MobileElement> elements = driver
                .findElements(By.xpath("//*[contains(@text,\"" + txt + "\")]"));

Thanks for the reply @Aleksei. I even tried this code ‘List elements = driver
.findElements(By.xpath("//*[contains(@text,"" + txt + “”)]"));’ but didn’t work using the UIAutomator2. So I tried using the tess4j OCR to convert the image into text. But am getting the error as below A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
