    What sort of message? SMS?

    Windows Phone (not UWP) is dead.

    UWP support for phones is effectively dead (you'd have to target an old version of UWP for it to work).

    What make/model of Windows phones are you planning to install on?
    What (exact, not just 10) version of Windows is installed on those phones?
    How many Windows phones do you expect to install on?

    (in practice, it can make sense to support Windows desktop and Windows tablets, but it is rarely going to be worth the effort to target old Windows phones)

    Hi John,
    I am not targeting any particular make/model. There is no number of users decided yet too. Mostly it will be windows phones, but if the app can support tablet too, that will be cherry on top.
    i wanted to develop the app relatable today's windows phones. So, may be windows 8 and above?

    even on Microsoft xamarin website, i cant find documentation for windows phones. I am very confused.

    It's not something that I have done. I have also read that it is not supported on iOS, but have not researched to confirm that. I suggest posting a question in the Xamarin.iOS forum at https://forums.xamarin.com/categories/ios
