Xbox Live headed to Android, iOS Microsoft has confirmed it is working on bringing 'Xbox experiences' to Android and iOS devices.
Xbox Live, the company's online gaming and social network, remains compatible with just Windows Phone devices for now, but that should change within the year.

Says a spokesman to Forbes: "While the Xbox Live experiences and games always work best on the Windows platform, we understand that some Xbox fans may be using other types of devices. To satisfy that need, we are working to extend a few of our Xbox experiences and titles to other platforms."

Microsoft already has a "My Xbox Live app" on iOS but the app only helps you track your achievements and talk with friends.

Additionally, Microsoft recently announced the end of its points currency on Xbox Live, which will move back to actual dollar amounts by the end of the year. Many had criticized the currency and its exchange rate as many people were left with small amounts of points that were useless and required a new block purchase just to buy an item they wanted.
