Microsoft adds Xbox Live applications to games on iOS and Android. This concerns, for example, achievements, Gamerscores and friend lists.

Developers can add parts of Xbox Live to their apps. Players can then make use of it by registering via a Microsoft Account.

In February, rumors were already coming out about making the online service available on mobile devices. Then there was talk of Xbox Live on the Nintendo Switch console.

Microsoft says the service makes "no announcements" about the Switch. "Our goal is to connect two billion gamers," said Kareem Choudhry. It is not clear whether the online service will eventually also be on PlayStation 4.
