Chat SDK different than Realtime?

Trying to download the Chat SDK for Xamarin and it keeps downloading the Realtime for Xamarin. I cannot find any reference to the ChatAPI in the realtime SDK I download. The two SDKs are different downloads are they not? I seem to remember them being different downloads for Unity.

  • Hi @digitalCowboy,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    It should be the same client SDK for Xamarin as we do for other platforms.

    But I just downloaded it and checked.
    You are right, the PhotonChatAPI is missing.

    I will report this and get back to you here about updates.

    I also hope we did not deprecate Xamarin yet as the SDK version is old 4.1.2.20 compared to 4.1.5.1 for .NET/C#/Unity.

    I hope not as well...that was one thing I was worried about since Xamarin is being deprecated....but it still has a large base and MAUI is not GA yet so worth at least to keep the Photon integration around through 2021 I would think
  • Xamarin SDKs are deprecated.
    Use Photon .NET SDKs instead.
    Thank you for your understanding!
