Building Android Applications

Learn how to build MAUI applications for Android.

Android applications can be built from any operating system. The principles of debugging and publishing Android applications are the same regardless of the platform. However, the tools may be different.

Debugging Android applications

To debug an Android application on any machine, we'll need to install the Android SDK and an Android emulator. To do so in Visual Studio on Windows, we'll need to expand the launch menu at the top of the screen and expand the "Android Emulators" option. If we already have any emulators installed, this is where we can choose an emulator to run our application in. If we don't have any emulators installed, we'll be prompted to install the Android SDK and the default emulator.
