Add Contact Features in 4 Lines of Code with Xamarin.Essentials

Shikha Kaul

Integrating contact functionality has been a common task that I have been asked to develop for mobile apps over the years. This has ranged from a full contacts directory to simple contact information inside an app. Most requested features include the ability to call the contact, send an sms or email, and navigate to a location. In the past, I would have to implement several native APIs myself or install several libraries that could provide the functionality. Today, with Xamarin.Essentials all of this functionality is available in a single library and can be implemented in just 4 lines of code! So, let’s build a contacts application with Xamarin.Essentials and Xamarin.Forms.
