    Can you clarify what it is you want to do? Do you want to call web services from a Xamarin app? When you refer to automation, is this for automated testing?

    We are verifying an End-To-End flow. We will be sending a data or doing an action from a mobile native app and verifying in a backend web application which is accessed through a desktop browser (chrome). We are trying to automate the verification part in the desktop app from the web service response.

    @cbrahul89 - That's still very unclear.

    If the basic question is "Can a Xamarin.Forms app communicate with a web service?", the answer is yes.

    If the question is "Is building a Xamarin.Forms app for the purposes of testing a web service a good approach for testing a web service?", that would be open to debate.

    If the question is "Is there any point in using Xamarin.Forms in some way to test a mobile app not created in Xamarin.Forms?", the answer is likely to be no.

    I'm referring to automated testing using Xamarin.UITest . I'm trying to automate the validation of a request sent from a mobile native app (built using Xamarin.Forms) and the response coming back to the app.

    Thanks John. It's now clarified.
