Microsoft announces Xbox Live is available on iOS and Android

Microsoft has launched the Xbox Live SDK toolkit for game developers. The new version of the toolkit has cross-platform features for iOS and Android. Game developers only need to integrate this toolkit into the game, and users can log in and sync profiles and achievements with a Microsoft account on the entire platform.

Support for synchronization currently provided by Microsoft includes: logging in with Microsoft accounts, synchronizing profiles, game achievements, progress data, and buddy lists. If the game itself supports Windows 10, iOS, and Android, the service can be used to open the user on each platform.

Perhaps this feature will be followed by the xCloud feature that Microsoft is secretly developing, which is designed to stream mobile games to other platforms. In addition, if Nintendo or Sony is willing, perhaps Nintendo and Sony PS series game consoles can also see Xbox Live.
