Xbox Live now official supports Android and iOS

A lot of people thought that Microsoft was being a bit too ambitious when it announced a plan to make a ‘unified gaming platform.’ But, it seems like the things are working out the way Microsoft wants them to.

It’s official. Xbox live now supports Android and iOS devices. This means that mobile players wouldn’t just be able to play together but, in fact, enjoy all social and interactive tools including leaderboards that existing Xbox live users have been enjoying for a while.

However, rather sadly, there has been no announcement concerning support for Nintendo Switch. In fact, the Verge reported that Microsoft cloud gaming boss Kareen Choudhry said that “Our goal is to really unite the two billion gamers of the world and we’re big fans of our Xbox Live community, but we don’t have any specific announcements as it relates to Switch today.”

As a big move, Microsoft made it possible and easier for other developers to use it’s ‘new software developer kit (SDK)’ to add Xbox live features. If you are interested and would like to read more about it, head here straightaway.
