Android 8.1 Emulator with Xamarin Android Emulator Manager? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User261475 posted

    Is there a way to setup a Android 8.1 Emulator with the Xamarin Android Emulator Manager? I have the SDK installed, as you can see here: https://i.imgur.com/354b6J9.png

    But I cannot choose to create a Emulator with 8.1... One of my Apps currently has an issue on 8.1 and I want to debug it without buying a Pixel just for that...

    There is no update for android 8.1 from Xamarin team. Therefore if you want to use 8.1 level AVD then you need to install Android studio and create new AVD with 8.1

    Hi, First of all install these packages that show in blow image. Android SDK Tools 26.1.1 and Android Emulator 27.0.2

    After this installation click on Android Emulator Manager it hits a dialog box that update your Emulator Manager to newer version like shown in blow image.

    Click on NEW and choose android version select 8.0 Oreo and any device theme. Emulator manager will download online image of android system after downloading complete click on create button. Enjoy new version of Emulator.

    1. I already have this installed, see: https://i.imgur.com/O5VcAja.png
    2. I don't want Android 8.0 because this works. I need 8.1.
