System.Console not available in Windows Phone 8.1 project in Visual Studio

I am new to Xamarin and Visual Studio (but a huge fan, been drooling over the possibilities Xamarin brings for a long time, while building apps in Obj-C, Swift and Java), so my apologies if this question is very basic.

I have a shared project with ios, android and winphone 8.1 (I actually wanted a UWP project instead, but found no tutorials on it).

If I add a Console.WriteLine statement in the Android or iOS part of my code it works, but not in the shared part. If I hover over Console, it says System.Console is available in iOS and Android, but not WinPhone 8.1.

I am using Visual Studio 2015 Professional.

What do I need to do to fix this?
