Microsoft has announced ‘Xamarin Live Player’ enabling developers to test, debug and deploy apps directly on Android and iOS devices.

The app allows developers to pair up their devices with Xamarin and Visual Studio on Windows/Mac followed by scanning the QR code and then test the apps in seconds.

According to Microsoft Corporate Vice President Nat Friedman, the new app allows developers to reduce time, to set up the app building environment and to compile apps. Cutting down the development time can create an immense enhancement for developer’s productivity.
