Microsoft continues to blur the line between the Xbox One and other game services, providing many of its features across PC and even offering cross-platform play with Nintendo Switch on certain titles.
If you’re a fan of Xbox Live, you should be happy to hear that the service is coming to iOS and Android as well.
Announced ahead of the Game Developers Conference, Microsoft revealed that many of Xbox Live’s biggest features will be available in games on iOS and Android.
Achievements, Gamerscore, friends lists, clubs, privacy settings, and parental controls will all be available for developers to use on mobile devices.
They can choose to use all of these for their games, or they can select them a la carte — if it only makes sense to add Achievements to your game, you can do that without issue.
The Gamerscore you earn playing titles on iOS and Android will be applied to the same account you use for games on Xbox One or PC.
