I am trying to use the DocumentDB Client SDK Nuget package for my Xamarin client app.  However, when I am trying to include the DocumentDB Client SDK Nuget package to my project, I get the following message and the SDK failed to be included.

Could not install package 'Microsoft.Azure.DocumentDB 1.1.0'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'MonoAndroid,Version=v5.0', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

Please help!

Thanks Asha99! Yes, will await your reply to getting the DocumentDB Client SDK Nuget package to work for Xamarin client app. Be really even greater if Microsoft is able to create a Xamarin COMPONENT add-on for the DocumentDB SDK as Microsoft has already been done so for the available superb Azure Mobile Services Xamarin Component add-on.  This would help developer a lot in adopting and consuming the Document DB service.

This is not currently supported in the .NET SDK. We are working to add this capability.
