See how to manage Android SDKs and emulators using Visual Studio for Mac.
- [Instructor] Android development on a Mac or a Windows…can be challenging because there's a number of different…tools, SDKs, and emulators, and images to manage.…Thankfully, Xamarin has really tried to simplify…that process for us.…If I go to the preferences for my Visual Studio for Mac…and I go under the project's…SDKs locations in Android,…you'll see that this is where I can manage all the different…SDK platforms that I want to have installed…and that I can then target and test.…
So I have Android eight or Oreo,…I have the platform SDK installed,…but also some images that I can use…inside emulators to test these.…And I have similar installations for Android seven one…and Android six, Marshmellow.…You need to choose which platforms you're gonna target…and which SDKs you want to have installed there.…Likewise on the tools, I can choose different…versions of the Android SDK tools,…in some cases you may need to fall back…to a previous version,…depending on various libraries…or packages that you've installed.…
And when we installed Visual Studio for Mac,…
