    Yes, it does, but you need to handle the logic in each project. So basically:
    1. Add Firebase Analytics nuget package to each platform project (you don't need it in the Forms project)
    2. Follow the instructions for each platform for initializing Firebase.

    iOS AppDelegate - FinishedLaunching
    Firebase.Analytics.App.Configure();

    Android MainActivity - OnCreate
    firebaseAnalytics = FirebaseAnalytics.GetInstance(this);

    You will need to create a dependancy service in each platform. In my case I made a class called Analytics. IOS example:

    [assembly: Xamarin.Forms.Dependency(typeof(App.iOS.Analytics))] namespace App.iOS { public class Analytics : IAnalytics {....

    I then have a function for each type of event I want to log. E.g.
    'public void ConnectToServer(Server server)
    {

            try
            {
                NSString[] keys = { new NSString(Global.ANALYTICS_CONNECTION_ESTABLISHED) };
                NSObject[] values = { new NSString(server.FullAddress) };
                var parameters = NSDictionary<NSString, NSObject>.FromObjectsAndKeys(values, keys, keys.Length);
                Firebase.Analytics.Analytics.LogEvent(EventNamesConstants.Login, parameters);
            }
            catch
            {
                // Ignore
            }
        }`

    Hi,

    is there any way to use old Google Analytics Api, becasue I don't see this option anymore on web panel - there is only Firebase.

    When I add to Xamarin.iOS project the nuget package with Firebase I get those errors:

    Hi,
    can you tell me because I'm getting this strange error?

    Error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'App' does not exist in the namespace 'Firebase.Analytics' (are you missing an assembly reference?) (CS0234)

    It refers to:
    Firebase.Analytics.App.Configure();

    Here you can see Firebase resources on my project:

    What do you think is going wrong?

    Thank you in advance!

    Well... I solved after 3 minutes from last post. I'm sorry!
    I don't know why but something changed.
    Actually "Firebase.Analytics." doesn't longer contain the "App" class.
    It's now in "Firebase.Core"! :/
    I downloaded the sample project from GitHub to try to compile and I saw it.
    Taking a look to the documentation I see that (now) it's written:

    Add the following line of code somewhere in your app, typically in your AppDelegate's FinishedLaunching method (don't forget to import Firebase.Core namespace):

    I'm quite sure it was in Analytics in the past because I was able to compile the code some months ago.

    @Tedebus. Your right, "Firebase.Core" working for me.

    Thank you!

    Is it also possible to use it in uwp application?
  • I tried to install Firebase.Analytic on IOS project and I got the below error. Do anyone experience the same issue? What would be the solution?

    Could not install package 'Xamarin.Firebase.Analytics 42.1021.1'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'Xamarin.iOS,Version=v1.0', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

    KahFaiLok. You are trying to install the android version in iOS. Search for Xamarin iOS firebase Analytics.

  • App.Configure method was moved from Firebase.Analytics namespace to Firebase.Core namespace in the mayor release from v3.x to v4.x. Please, import Firebase.Core to your libraries to use this method.
