My Xbox Live comes to Android, updated for iOS

Summary: Microsoft released My Xbox Live for Android today so you can now manage your Xbox Live profile and perform other functions on the go.


While one of my primary smartphones is the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone, I still do use a few Android phones and an iPad. Thus, I was pleased with the news that My Xbox Live launched for Android and was improved for iOS.

This free Xbox Live utility app for Android gives you the following functions:

  • View, manage, and message friends
  • View and compare your achievement progress with friends
  • Read and Edit your full LIVE profile (name, bio, motto)
  • See your 3-D Avatar and customize it while on-the-go
  • Access your recent activity and manage your Beacons
  • Stay connected to the Xbox LIVE community via Spotlight

The updates in the iOS app include:

  • Discover fresh content (iPhone)
  • Connect to and control content on your Xbox 360 (iPhone)
  • Improved authentication (iPad)
  • Retina display support (iPad)

I don't have much time to play games on my Xbox 360 console, but I do play quite a few games on my Lumia 900 and enjoy the Xbox Live experience. Similar to the current Xbox Live app on Windows Phone, my Han Solo outfit is not yet supported on the phone platforms :(

    • Okay then

      if you find his article "dishonest" then put your money where your mouth is and write one that is factual - i.e. no bias at all.

      Or barring that list the reasons you consider his article to be false.
