Xamarin.Android - DownloadableFonts Sample

This sample demonstrates how to use the Downloadable Fonts feature introduced in Android O. Downloadable Fonts is a feature that allows apps to request a certain font from a provider instead of bundling it or downloading it themselves. This means, there is no need to bundle the font as an asset.

There are two ways of requesting a font to download:

  • Request a font to download from C# code
  • Declare a downloaded font in an XML file

Build Requirements

Using this sample requires the Android 8.0 (API 26) and the Xamarin.Android 7.5.x or higher.
