No AOT/LLVM Option

I am on a Xamarin.Forms project (using Visual Studio Community) and do not see an option to enable AOT/LLVM for the Android project. Is this option only available for Visual Studio Enterprise? I ended up enabling it manually via the csproj file and it worked. Just wondering why it doesn't have an option when using VS Community.

Kind of a side question, but as a test, I tried downloading a free trial of VS Enterprise, but it keeps saying VS Community when I open it. Can we not have two instances of VS on Mac?

    Yes, AOT is an Enterprise option.

    The download for VS Community and VS Enterprise are the same. You activate the enterprise features by logging in with an account that has an enterprise licence.
