Connectivity Plugin for Xamarin and Windows

Simple cross platform plugin to check connection status of mobile device, gather connection type, bandwidths, and more.


Get started by reading through the Connectivity Plugin documentation.



I have been working on Plugins for Xamarin for a long time now. Through the years I have always wanted to create a single, optimized, and official package from the Xamarin team at Microsoft that could easily be consumed by any application. The time is now with Xamarin.Essentials, which offers over 50 cross-platform native APIs in a single optimized package. I worked on this new library with an amazing team of developers and I highly highly highly recommend you check it out.

Additionally, Xamarin.Essentials is now included in & .NET MAUI.

Due to the functionality being included "in the box" I have decided to officially archive this repo.
