Does Xamarin.Forms require the Google Play Services to be present on Android ... RRS feed

  • Question

    ... and if so is there a way around that?

    I am asking since quite a large part of our Apps users is on Huawai phones and due to the current embargo Huawei will be discarding the Google Play Services and everything related with upcoming phones.

    Since our Apps are all written in Xamarin.Forms we are now faced to investigate if we can support running our Apps on Huawei phones that do not have Google Play Services.

    Sorry if that question has already been asked, but searching through Google did not provide me with satisfying results.

    Best regards.

    The base package of Xamarin.Forms does not, but some of the other packages such as Xamarin.Forms.Maps and Xamarin.Forms.AppLinks do.

    The easiest way to determine if a given package does is to look at the dependencies through nuget.org.
