Does Apex Mobile Legends support crossplay? The quick answer is yes and no. Players on iOS and Android crossplay with each other, while players on console and PC crossplay separately. Players on mobile do not face off against players on PC or console.


Does Apex Legends Mobile have crossplay?

Apex Legends Mobile does support crossplay, but only between mobile phone platforms. People who play on iOS and Android will only play with other iOS and Android players. Meanwhile, players on PC, console, and Nintendo Switch all play with each other on the regular Apex Legends.

The reason for this is mechanical. The mobile version of Apex Legends isn’t quite the same as the PC and console versions. Thus, they are incompatible. This might change one day when mobile phones can run full PC or console games, but we doubt it’ll be anytime soon.

Does Apex Legends Mobile have cross-progression?

Unfortunately, cross-progression is a sticking point for many existing Apex Legends fans. There is no cross-progression on the regular Apex Legends or Apex Legends Mobile. In other words, you can’t link your existing PC or console Apex Legends account with Apex Legends Mobile or vice versa.

You can’t even cross-save across compatible platforms. Steam users can link their accounts to Origin and carry progress over. However, if you play on Xbox, you can’t log in with your save file on a Nintendo Switch. Similarly, Android users can’t switch to iOS or vice versa.

There is a metric ton of chatter about Apex Legends cross-progression, but it seems like the developers are aiming for a 2022 or 2023 launch of cross-progression. Apparently, it’s quite a messy situation for them to deal with and way more difficult than crossplay.
