android – Installing Xamarin for VSCode on Mac



I am wanting to create an app that can be used on IOS/Android. I found out Xamarin was good for doing this and it can also be installed on VSCode which is what I have been using for other projects. After doing some research, I feel like I am having to uninstall/reinstall to get the ability to download the “Mobile Applications” tools for vscode.

Is there a way to achieve this with Xamarin without having to uninstall/reinstall? Any help will be appreciated.

I’ve watched tutorials and everyone is showing to install by using a fresh install of VScode. I checked if I could install in Extensions and I can not.
