The Microsoft Xbox Live Service API (XSAPI) enables game developers to access Xbox Live. To get access to the Xbox Live service, you can join the Xbox Live Creators Program at https://aka.ms/xblcp, or apply to the ID@Xbox program at http://www.xbox.com/en-us/Developers/id
To learn more about these programs, please refer to the developer program overview
What's in the API:
- Xbox Live Features - profile, social, presence, leaderboards, achievements, multiplayer, matchmaking, title storage
- Platforms - Windows UWP on Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs, Xbox One XDK
- Support for Visual Studio 2017, and 2015

How to use the Xbox Live Services API (XSAPI)
How to clone repo
This repo contains submodules. There are two ways to make sure you get submodules.
When initially cloning, make sure you use the
--recursive option. IE:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/Microsoft/xbox-live-api.git
If you already cloned the repo, you can initialize submodules with:
git submodule sync git submodule update --init --recursive
Note that using GitHub's feature to "Download Zip" does not contain the submodules and will not properly build. Please clone recursively instead.
How to link your project against source
You might want to link against the XSAPI source if you want to debug an issue, or understand where an error code is coming from. How to do this can be found at How to link your project against source
Is there a feature missing that you'd like to see, or found a bug that you have a fix for? Or do you have an idea or just interest in helping out in building the library? Let us know and we'd love to work with you. For a good starting point on where we are headed and feature ideas, take a look at our requested features and bugs.
Big or small we'd like to take your contributions back to help improve the Xbox Live Service API for everyone.
We'd love to get your review score, whether good or bad, but even more than that, we want to fix your problem. If you submit your issue as a Review, we won't be able to respond to your problem and ask any follow-up questions that may be necessary. The most efficient way to do that is to open a an issue in our issue tracker.
Any questions you might have can be answered on the MSDN Forums. You can also ask programming related questions to Stack Overflow using the "xbox-live" tag. The Xbox Live team will be engaged with the community and be continually improving our APIs, tools, and documentation based on the feedback received there.
