How To Detect Amazon Platform

RaymondKellyRaymondKelly USMember ✭✭✭

Is it possible to detect when an app (Android) is running on a Kindle? I see Device.OS but there is no Kindle or Amazon. I cannot test the behavior as I dont have a physical Amazon device. Will it detect as "Other" or "Android"? Is there another way to tell?

Thanks
Ray

    @RaymondKelly - Xamarin Forms has nothing specific for this, so it will come back as Android.

    However if you look at
    Android.OS.Build.Model
    and
    Android.OS.Build.Manufacturer

    Then look at Build and Manufacturer on this list to see what results you will get back for each type of device.

    Amazon Device and Feature Specifications

    Of course this is via native Android. You will need to use DependencyInjection to get it back into Forms.
