Xamarin Version -

I want to handle Windows 10 Software back button for my windows 8.1 app. Below code is not getting hit when the back button is tapped.

protected override bool OnBackButtonPressed()
            return true;

Hence when I click back button its closing the App instead of navigating to previous page.

Still appears to be an issue as far as I can tell so I'll set this to confirmed for now until we can investigate it further.
