Hi, I want to run xamarin Android project on azure VM, means I want to use azure VM as my development environment.

I have seen couple of post suggesting only on some azure VM type it would be possible. Not sure about and not found any documentation for that.

Can any one please help me to sort it out?

Thanks

    You need a VM that is Intel based with HyperV enabled, thus Visual Studio would use it to create the android emulator.

    You can see the caveat there for the tuning you can do;

    By experience in Android development, I now use an older Android hardware on my side. The android emultor was buggy for me and it’s easy to enable the dev mode on android and link it by USB to test run your application.
