Using Appium to receive an Intent

I am trying to use Appium to run tests on an Android device where the app we are interfacing with provides an API via the Intents library. We can send Intents with commands to it like “sendMessage”, “pressKeyDown”, etc.

One of the requirements is that this app also wants to broadcast Intents back to us as a way of providing a response.

We were considering using the Appium libraries as it would require a lot less work in our current architecture. However, I don’t see a way in Appium to register a receiver. Are my eyes deceiving me or is this not a thing?

Thank you.
