    I guess not (at the time of writing), so I finally gave the Google Emulator another try. My previous experience is that it is very slow but once you install the correct image (Intel x86 Atom_64 System Image) and the Intel x86 Emulator Accellerator it works pretty fast!

    So today they had a blogpost about Android 7: https://blog.xamarin.com/xamarin-android-7-0-now-with-more-nougat/

    Under learn more, they are writing "browse through our full documentation on installing Xamarin.Android 7.0, creating emulators, ..."

    So I clicked the link... there it seems to only be a guide of how you do this with the Google Emulator.

    Guess they don't give Xamarin Player much love then.

    Yeah, probably because Xamarin is now Microsoft and Microsoft is preoccupied with their Visual Studio Emulator for Android...
