XAMARIN – The adb binary found is obsolete and has serious performance problems with the android emulator

Each time I started my Android emulator on VS 2019, I started to get the next error:

The ADB binary at C:\Users\siviw\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe is obsolete and has serious performance problems with the Android Emulator. Please update to a newer version to get significantly faster app / file transfer

Although I saw in multiple blogs that this could be fixed by updating the Android SDK, this solution didn’t work for me. The workaroud I had to do, was to check which API version my virtual Device was using(In my case was API 27) and then confirm that I had installed that specific version.

Once I ensured this, the error didn’t appear any more.
Hope it helps.
