Arguably the most popular UI testing tool is WebDriver. There is a binding specifically for Android that will do the trick when you use it with a proxy like Appium. If you want to test at the service layer, I would suggest looking into API testing frameworks in your programming language of choice.

Apart from this, if you need to consider some other options, you can choose from React Native, Xamarin, Calabash, or UI Automator.
