  • Hi Fahad M ALKaldi,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    As far as I know, now we are including Xamarin in Visual Studio at no extra cost. Xamarin will be in every edition of Visual Studio, including the widely-available Visual Studio Community Edition, which is free for individual developers, open source projects, academic research, education, and small professional teams. For the detail information, please check this official blog comes from Xamarin: Xamarin for Everyone

    Refer to the above information, if you comply with the license terms of VS community 2015, you can use the Visual Studio community 2015 with Xamarin at no extra cost.

    Best regards,
