Xamarin: Make a different page appear upon button press if Android version is 6 or below

I have a problem where some content on one of my app pages only shows for more recent versions of Android. The solution I'd like to implement is to present totally different content to Android 6 and below phones. The problem is, I haven't found a function like OnPlatform and OnIdiom that applies to Android version. Is there something like this?

Thanks,
Joe

    Hello,​

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    You can use Xamarin.Essentials: Device Information to get the Android device version like following code with background code.

       var version = DeviceInfo.VersionString;  
    

    Tips:If you want to make different pages based on the Android version. you can binding a value forViews or Controls' IsVisible property to control them or You can naviagte diferent pages by the Android version.
