Use Android GoogleAPI Emulator?

See original GitHub issue

I’m trying to run my tests on the new Android GoogleAPI Emulator (Chrome on Android 7), but I get this error:

Google API devices are only supported for Se3 specifications: Android GoogleAPI Emulator

This is my browser configuration:

      SLChromeMobile: {
        base: 'SauceLabs',
        browserName: 'Chrome',
        version: '7.0',
        platform: 'Android',
        device: 'Android GoogleAPI Emulator',

How can I fix it?

With this config it finished with success (with some issues but finally it did it):

"SL_Android_4": {
	"base": "SauceLabs",
	"browserName": "Chrome",
	"appiumVersion": "1.6.3",
	"platformVersion": "7.0",
	"platformName": "Android",
	"deviceName": "Android GoogleAPI Emulator"

Please note that I have appiumVersion in my config. Code pasted by You doesn’t have it so maybe You forgot it? On first try I’ve had timeout Chrome on SauceLabs have not captured in 60000 ms, killing, on second it finally passed.
