During the incident, any requests to start Appium sessions on Android devices requiring chromedriver version 112 or higher failed.
This was caused due to an outdated version of chromedriver in our real device pool. The process that is responsible for keeping chromedriver up to date failed due to a bug. The bug also caused the alert mechanism to fail, causing a delay in our response.
We deployed a new version of the real device pool with the latest chromedriver versions.
We are addressing the bug in the chromedriver update process, which caused chromedriver to be out of date and delayed our response.
