    Cannot find reference to Google Play Services ads on the Microsoft web site. Most Xamarin links redirect to MS Docs website :(

    I have tried this several times in a few different apps using both this video and the sample blog at https://montemagno.com/xamarinforms-google-admob-ads-in-android/.

    I always get the following error.
    No resource identifier found for attribute 'configchanges' in package 'android'

    These are what I add to the AndroidManifest.xml file with xxxxxxx as my correct Application ID

    Is there an update for this video or a more up to date example somewhere??

    Hi James,

    thank you for the video.
    What changes to your tutorial should we make in order to accommodate test ads?
    As per this:

    thanks

    Hi James,
    it would seem that some aspects of Xamarin Forms/Droid mentioned in this video have been deprecated. Is it time for a refresh?

    Has anybody here had any success using mediation and/or open bidding in a Xamarin app? My app is up and running on Google Play and the Apple App Store (and MS Store in a paid version) but I can't for the life of me seem to get mediation or open bidding to work. James's videos were very helpful to me when it came to getting going and my apps are serving ads (and earning tiny amounts of money) but I'm stuck on mediation. It has been impossible to get any help from AdMob and I'm beginning to wonder if they have any DNA based life forms on staff or just bots. 🤔
