Seen here in this user test : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_M8GzzN9iiA

Docs: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/deployment,_testing,_and_metrics/android-player-with-visual-studio-in-vm/

User goes into OSX and starts XAP.  User returns to VS in Windows and tries to select the XAP emulator (running on OSX) and it is not available to select.

User needs to restart VS to have it be an option.

VS should not need to restart VS to have the emulator be shown as an option / or the docs should be updated to state that a restart is required.
