This week, we take a look at how to monetize your mobile applications. Specifically we will see how to add mobile ads into your existing iOS, Android, and UWP applications. I walk through how to ad a Google Admob add to a Xamarin.Android application and how to create a custom renderer for Xamarin.Forms in just a few minutes.

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