@Naqeeb is this only occurring in VS? Can you reproduce on Mac or Windows XS? Moving to the VS extension now as there's no reason I can think of for why this emulator shouldn't behave the same as any other. I'm wondering if this is not a dupe of the behavior we had seen in the past of emulator's not showing up right away on a clean install, but I can't seem to locate that bug now...

@Peter this issue only for VS not for Mac or Windows XS.

Yes @Juan API 23 is install by the installer. Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/WwAFc9CHu8

I have checked this issue with build Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.1.0.462_fb9e9f3c82ef86b653a43f13acc51902d66570d7  
and observed that it is working fine. I am able to see emulator with above build. Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/KZzyOr8j

Hence closing this issue.
