can anyone share some example or instructions on how to create an Android Daydream service - Android.Service.Dreams.DreamService Class
I can see that it is supported in Xamarin ( but no examples on how to do it

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    I have created a test project

    but when DayDream Service needs to be started I am getting Java.Lang.Runtime exception

    Unable to instantiate service com.dinonovak.DayDreamTest.MyDreamService: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Didn't find class "com.dinonovak.DayDreamTest.MyDreamService"

    I am not sure if this is manifest issue or something wrong with service definition
