Contact tracing apps are popping up all over the place as governments and other organisations look at ways of tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Google and Apple have produced Exposure Notification APIs through Bluetooth Low Energy to aid in contact tracing. The Xamarin team has been following the development closely and the first preview of bindings for Android and iOS Exposure APIs is now out.
Additionally, a new cross-platform API to simplify building contact tracing apps has also gone into preview.
