**The preview of Xamarin Live Reload has ended, and we want to thank everyone for your feedback and comments. This extension will remain available for Visual Studio 2017, but will not be receiving future updates.
XAML Hot Reload for Xamarin.Forms enables you to make changes to your XAML UI and see the updates applied live, without requiring another compile and deploy. For more information, check out the XAML Hot Reload documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/xamarin-forms/xaml/hot-reload
Xamarin Live Reload enables you to make changes to your XAML and see them reflected live, without requiring another compile and deploy. Any changes made to your XAML will be redeployed on save and reflected on your deployment target.
Because your app is compiled when using Live Reload, it works with all libraries and third-party controls. Live Reload works on all platforms Xamarin.Forms supports, including iOS, Android, UWP, and WPF, and works on all valid deployment targets, including simulators, emulators, and physical devices.
To get started, follow the instructions in documentation.
