In addition to the GameStack announcement, Microsoft also touted the migration of its Xbox Live toolkit from PC and Xbox One to Android and iOS, allowing developers to include party systems, messaging, Xbox achievements, Microsoft sign-in, and cloud saves in mobile games on those platforms.

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.

Microsoft gaming cloud chief Kareem Choudhry did mention at the Xbox Live briefing that opening up Xbox Live to Nintendo Switch and PS4 games was possible down the road, with the former being a bit more probable than the latter, The Verge reports.

Starting today, Microsoft is bringing Xbox Live to additional platforms. When I inquired about the timeframe for Nintendo Switch support, Microsoft said it has nothing to announce at this time except that the company's philosophy is to bring its tools to developers wherever they want them. We first saw this change with the integration of Xbox Live and Windows 10, along with Play Anywhere. "Really uniting all those communities together with a consistent singular experience for those gamers".

With the SDK, game developers can pick and choose which Xbox Live features make it to their mobile games. After all, the Xbox brand's best asset is its online functionality and the Live service has proven to be the best-in-class online gaming platform in the console segment.

"We believe so strongly in community, and Xbox Live really being at the heart of our gaming community".

"If you've watched us for the past few years, we've taken a very inclusive approach".

"Our goal is to really unite the 2 billion gamers of the world and we're big fans of our Xbox Live community, but we don't have any specific announcements as it relates to Switch today", said Choudhry.
