Can not switch context to NATIVE_APP in Appium Inspector

I want to inspect the native react application, Appium inspector connects to Android application but switches to WebView context and nothing happens for minutes.
In the logs I see that Appium detect available contexts: [“NATIVE_APP”,“WEBVIEW_chrome”], select “WEBVIEW_chrome” and stuck on “Webview version: ‘Chrome/92.0.4515.131’” (nothing happens and loader is present in Appium Inspector)


  • Appium Appium v1.21.0
  • Desktop OS/version used to run Appium: Windows 10 / macOS Big Sur
  • Mobile platform: Android
  • Real device: Pixel 3a XL Android 11 / Samsung M20 Android 10
  • / Appium.exe

Is it possible to force selection “NATIVE_APP” context in Appium Inspector?

Hi @grafoxy1, I do have a similar problem with Chrome 93. maybe you could try to clear the data of Chrome application on your android application. it works for me.
