Microsoft Releases AndroidX For Xamarin

AndroidX is a redesign of the Android Support Library.

Recently, Microsft Introduced AndroidX for Xamarin. AndroidX is a redesign of the Android Support Library.
 
 
The Android team said that it has refactored the Support Library into a new set of extension libraries known as AndroidX. AndroidX contains simplified package names in order to better reflect each package’s content and it’s supported API levels.
 
AndroidX also provides a clear separation from what packages are bundled with the Android OS, and those that are an extension of it.
 
The company said that as AndroidX is a redesign of the Android Support Library it contains migration steps that affect Android applications built with the Android Support Library.
 
The company said that if an application includes any dependencies that have not been migrated to the AndroidX namespace, developers will have to make use of Android Support Library to AndroidX Migration package.
 
And, if your application does not have any dependencies requiring AndroidX namespace migration, you can use the AndroidX libraries on NuGet.
