Can I run an android API 29 emulator (requires KVM) in bitbucket pipelines?

I'm trying to run an end-to-end integration test as part of my project's continuous integration. The integration test uses an Android emulator. 

Running an android emulator with API >25 requires KVM.

getting KVM in Docker requires ``--privileged``.

But bitbucket pipelines do not allow ``--privileged``.

So is it impossible to run an android API version 29 emulator in a bitbucket pipeline?

Has anyone successfully run a recent API android emulator in a bitbucket pipeline?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

No answer here, sorry. But our team also would like to know how KVM can be enabled.

Did you manage to run Emulator API 25? Up to API 25 there are arm7 versions that do not need KVM, but we were not able to run it properly. The boot sequence never seems to finish. If you managed to make that work, I would love to see how you did it. Perhaps a gist or something of your pipelines.yaml would be very nice.

Sorry, we have exactly the same issue with arm7-AVDs. They are slow and booting never ends. 

Is there any information on this?
