Unveiled for GDC, Microsoft is bringing Xbox Live to Android by way of a new SDK. At the moment, however, there's no sign of Xbox Live for Switch as yet.

During the presentation, Microsoft touted its growing cloud platform, which is now twice as large as its closest competitor (namely Amazon Web Services) and will continue to expand even further.

The move to open up Xbox Live to a wider audience is part of a bigger push to get Microsoft's tools and services to more platforms. That means you'll eventually see things like Xbox Live achievements, Gamerscore, clubs, and more on updated and new Android and iOS games. That includes includes a trusted identity network based on Microsoft accounts, a frictionless integration for developers (Xbox Live-enabled games were notoriously hard to develop in the Windows 8/Windows Phone era due to Microsoft's strict guidelines), as well as many ways to keep mobile gamers engaged with achievements, crossplay, and more.

A couple of weeks ago, we learned from an upcoming Microsoft session at the Game Developers Conference that Microsoft was planning a major expansion of its Xbox Live gaming network. Slowly but surely, Xbox Live has started making its way to other platforms, most notably Windows PCs.

It's chatter that has people envisioning a future without software exclusives: a world where you'll be able to suit up as Master Chief on the Switch, and take in the panoramic views of Forza Horizon on the PlayStation 4. "Really uniting all those communities together with a consistent singular experience for those gamers".

Choudhry remained tight-lipped when asked about the prospects of seeing Xbox Live on rival consoles, but reiterated Microsoft's desire to keep building bridges. "But we don't have any specific announcements as it relates to Switch today".
