I am trying to develop my first application using xamarin.android and i would like to use ML Kit Vision to scan QR codes. I am searching information and all I can find is examples using ML Kit firbase, that if I am not wrong, I need to create an account in and also it uses the cloud, so I need internet connection. I would like to can use my application without internet connection.
However, I see that now google offers the ML Kit on device, that allows to use the ML Kit without needed an internet connection, so it seems what I am looking for. The google documention is this.
Also, in the xamarin android, I could find a question about if it was missed the binding to ML Kit, and the post was close 8 days ago because the binding is added. So if I am not wrong, that means that now I could use ML Kit on device in the xamarin android. Is this true? The question in xamarin web is this. Here they mention that until know, there was available the com.google.firebase but that the new libraries to can use ML Kit on device are com.google.mlkit and it seems that the new binding that was added 8 days ago it is for com.google.mlkit.
But my main doubt is how to import or reference the ML Kit library to can use the new libraries. Because if I search in nuget.org for com.google.mlkit I don't get results, but if I search for com.google.firebase I find many packages. Could someone give some guidelines to can start?
Thanks so much.
