Uiautomator 2 causing issues with «driver.swipe()»

When I start the server with Appium Server GUI the [driver.swipe()] command works correctly but when I start the server inside the terminal (my OS is Macintosh) with the command:
appium -p 4723 --base-path “/wd/hub”
The swipe command does not work here.

The error I get is:

selenium.common.exceptions.WebDriverException: Message: Not implemented

The log I have in the Appium terminal:

Seems the version of uiautomator2 has an issue.
If you are using
appium driver install uiautomator2
to install uiautomator2, then update it by selecting a particual version.
Such as
appium driver install [email protected]
which works on my side without issues.

It worked, thanks :heart::pray:

Same issue not working with [email protected]

Delete whatever is the current version on the system:
appium driver uninstall uiautomator2
Install this version:
appium driver install [email protected]
My problem was solved by this method.
