appcenter android build with multidex

I have my appcenter android build setup and working well. Recently I added a package Xamarin.Forms.AppLinks to enable deep linking in app and my local VS build failed with error 'error MSB6006: "java" exited with code 2". After some research I enabled Multi-Dex option for android project and it fixed the issue.

But Appcenter android build is still failing with same below error. Not sure if appcenter is ignoring this settings. Has anyone had experience compiling appcenter android build with multidex enabled?

    I have compiled with multidex in the past in AppCenter. I'm having the same error now, though. Have you compiled locally?

    Are you using the latest VS 2019 version?

    I am using VS 2017 and locally it works fine with multidex enabled. It doesnt compile in appcenter.
