Microsoft will bring the Xbox Live network to iOS and Android devices, as revealed by The Verge's dedicated website.
The software giant will launch a new development software for mobile development software (SDK) for game developers.
There will be Xbox Live features such as achievements, Gamerscore, hero stats, friends lists, clubs and even familiar settings.
All of this is part of Microsoft's greater efforts to make its Xbox games and services available on many platforms.

The company has published this information this week and may indicate that this should happen very soon.
Microsoft wants game developers to access Minecraft alike. This new SDK opens Xbox Live for many more games.
If you wanted to see Xbox Live on a Nintendo Switch, you might have to wait a little longer, which should take some time.
While Xbox Live on PlayStation 4 looks unlikely, but Microsoft is open to the idea that Sony is willing to afford it. The software manufacturer also announces the new Microsoft Game Stack.
