Hi guys, I have an issue with Visual Studio 2017 for Windows. When I connect an Android device, I can't find this device on the list. Also, I noticed Android is disappeared from Tools menu. Apparently, the only way I have to deploy an app to a device is Xamarin Live Player: I have installed the client on my device but I can't deploy my app.

Visual Studio 2017 without Android menu

Ok, I discovered that if you update Visual Studio, for some reasons Android SDK is uninstalled. Restart Visual Studio Installer, verify that Android SDK is checked and then click on Modify button. It is working.
