The goal is that by using Xbox Live services, the mobile developer will be able to easily tap into the already established Xbox community to drive more adoption of the new application. Instead, they can select the parts of Xbox Live they want to integrate into their games. Regardless of which features game developers pick, the features will be enabled through a single sign-in to a Microsoft account.

A GDC session description last month foreshadowed the expansion of Xbox Live, and it also included the Nintendo Switch console as one of the platforms set to become compatible with the service.
