Microsoft’s Xbox Live can soon work in any Android game

With the launch of a new cross-platform SDK, Microsoft is allowing developers to integrate Xbox Live functionality in their games.

They're releasing a new SDK for developers that will allow Xbox Live to be added to Android and iOS apps.Xbox Live is a major component of a whole new initiative, Microsoft Game Stack, which brings together Microsoft's development tools and services to help companies bring their games to Microsoft platforms. This will ensure that your scores, achievements, and other stats are synced with and to your Xbox One. 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.

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. Regardless of which features game developers pick, the features will be enabled through a single sign-in to a Microsoft account. In a pre-briefing with reporters, Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft corporate vice president of gaming cloud, said he didn't have anything to announce related to the Switch.

It does not bring back for me the other results from when we played them and we lost", he added. 'We all feel that's where this club belongs and we proved it at least a little bit.

While the lack of Xbox Live support for Nintendo Switch may seem conspicuous, having been listed among Microsoft's plans for GDC, that doesn't mean it isn't necessarily still on the cards. Today we got the official announcement. but Nintendo Switch support is mysteriously missing.
