    Why not install VS2017 or 2019 ? There are many new features in VS2017 and vs2019.

    And Once we install the VS , then VS will install the android sdk automatically.

    When we click Setting up the Android SDK for Xamarin.Android,we will see

    Visual Studio includes an Android SDK Manager that you use to download Android SDK tools, platforms, and other components that you need for developing Xamarin.Android apps.

    So the Android SDK Manager will help us download the latest Android components that we need for developing our Xamarin.Android app.
    Meanwhile, we should notice the Note:

    This guide applies to Visual Studio 2019, Visual Studio 2017, and Visual Studio for Mac.

    So , why not install VS2017 or VS2019?
