No font support available in Visual Studio Preview? [API 26/Android O (8.0)]

I was trying to implement in Visual Studio Preview the new feature of Android O/8.0 (Fonts in XML) as per Android docs available here:
https://developer.android.com/preview/features/working-with-fonts.html

VS Preview seems to recognize the font tags in XML but once I try to build and run for API 26 (which should be Android 8, but VS recognizes it as Android 7.99... weird?) it fails giving error that the tags fontFamily, fontStyle, fontWeight (etc...) are not available.

Does that mean that font support is not available yet even in the VS Preview, and if not, when will it be? Android O is coming next month...?
