There are three technique for sharing code in xamarine.forms

.NET Standard Libraries – .NET Standard projects can implement code to be shared across multiple platforms, and can access a large number of .NET APIs (depending on the version). .NET Standard 1.0 - 1.6 implement progressively larger sets of APIs, while .NET Standard 2.0 provides the best coverage of the .NET BCL (including the .NET APIs available in Xamarin apps).

Shared Projects – Use the Shared Asset Project type to organize your source code, and use #if compiler directives as required to manage platform-specific requirements.

Portable Class Libraries (deprecated) – Portable Class Libraries (PCLs) can target multiple platforms with a common API surface, and use Interfaces to provide platform-specific functionality. PCLs are deprecated in the latest versions of Visual Studio – use .NET Standard instead.
