Xbox Live Could Come to iOS and Android Devices

Last Updated: March 5, 2014


If you enjoy using Xbox Live on your Xbox and Windows products, stay tuned—in the future, you could be able to access it on other devices, as well.

Verge received word from anonymous sources that Microsoft has plans to extend Xbox Live to devices that run the iOS and Android operating systems. This would make the service more versatile and far-reaching.

While we can’t confirm the truth of this rumor, it is supported by an old Microsoft job listing. This listing, which has since been deleted, referenced “a modern framework that is open-source, lightweight, extensible and scalable across various platforms including Windows Store, Windows Phone, iOS, and Android.”

Microsoft has declined to comment on the matter.

As with all rumors, take it with a pinch of salt. We’ll keep you update if further details emerge.
