Microsoft Brings its Xbox Live Network to iOS and Android

Microsoft wants to use its Azure services such as PlayFab, Xbox Live, and soon, Project xCloud, to help developers reach gamers wherever they are, on whatever device they want to use.

With the new SDK, developers will be able to leverage Xbox's trusted game identity, cross-platform integration, achievements, and other services that the company hopes will entice mobile game developers to use its platform. While that future is still a while off, they took a big step today by announcing plans to bring Xbox Live services to iOS and Android.

These announcements are all part of Microsoft's mission to make Azure the "cloud of choice" for game developers around the globe, Azure Corporate Vice President Julia White said. Microsoft's own Minecraft supports cross-play between Xbox One, Switch and PC players, as does the popular multiplayer game Rocket League.

Microsoft has been pretty clear about its intentions to turn Xbox into more of a platform than a standalone console. None of these services is new on their own, but bringing them together under Game Stack is created to make it easier for developers to find and use Microsoft's tools. They'll also be able to do it through a single-sign on to a Microsoft account, and build in safety features, such as blocking, muting, and account permissions-all features found in games already part of the subscription-based gaming network.
