Microsoft has announced that it is opening the software development kit (SDK) for the Xbox One to app developers, in an effort to unify with the upcoming Windows 10 operating system.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, revealed the news at GDC 2015 in San Francisco on Wednesday, telling the audience that the Xbox One SDK is already being used by a handful of developers and that it will soon be made available to more. Driven by Microsoft’s desire for cross-platform unity, the SDK will allow apps and games created for Windows to be ported to Xbox One.

“This SDK will provide access to the vast majority of Xbox Live services currently available on Xbox One, under a shared set of APIs, integrated with the Windows Store,” a post on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire blog reads.

Microsoft says it wants to make Xbox Live accessible to developers of all sizes, and wants to facilitate greater interaction between developers and the gaming community.
