Microsoft Announces Xbox Live for Android and iOS

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Live will be making its way to iOS and Android, following last month's GDC 2019 event itinerary from the platform-holder, stating that it would be unveiling the service for mobile platforms and Nintendo Switch.

Microsoft has laid out plans to launch a new cross-platform mobile SDK for that will let game devs add Xbox Live functionality to games on iOS and Android.

Using Xbox Live will provide several benefits for game developers.

"Historically, our lineup of game developer tools has been varied and lived in pockets all across Microsoft", Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft corporate vice president of gaming cloud said in a briefing ahead of the big Game Developers Conference this week. The goal is that by using Xbox Live services, the mobile developer will be able to easily tap into the already established Xbox community to drive more adoption of the new application. He recently claimed Microsoft wants to bring its Game Pass subscription service - which grants users access to major first-party titles like Halo, Gears of War, and Forza - to "any device that somebody wants to play on".

So, it's entirely possible that Microsoft is working toward Xbox Live integration for Nintendo Switch, but that it's simply not yet ready for announcement.

What we do know now is that this Xbox Live SDK will bring trusted game identity security controls and will allow developers to pick and choose which Xbox Live features they want to include in their games. At the moment, however, there's no sign of Xbox Live for Switch as yet.

For more than a decade, when you think about Xbox Live, you are likely thinking of a black box that sits in your living room that connects to an online service. "But we don't have any specific announcements as it relates to Switch today".
