Despite already having a console tie-in app for smartphones in the form of Xbox SmartGlass, it seems that Microsoft doesn’t want to stop there.

Rumours are currently circulating that the firm wants to bring its Xbox Live service to iOS and Android phones in the form of a gaming social network app.

Although details regarding the service are scarce, it is thought that it will offer  deeper integration with Microsoft’s online gaming platform – supporting messages, party invites, leader boards and possibly even voice chat.

TechRadar also  spotted a new software engineer job posting on Microsoft’s site which describes the desire to create a modern framework that’s compatible with various platforms including iOS and Android, so there does appear to be some truth to the rumours.
