Valve could be developing a Xbox Crossplay API for Steam as hinted by the latest Steam Beta Update.

The newest version of the Steam Beta [...] added new settings in the Steam Open Source Multiplayer Matchmaking Files. The files mention “pairing” with Xbox, which could mean Steam crossplay with Xbox.

Although its true that some games have cross-play compatibility built in [...], this update potentially puts that function right into Steam itself, which could mean it becoming much easier for developers to support cross-play and adding many more games to the cross-play support list.

Although this is just fruitful thinking for now, it could be huge news for both Xbox and Steam communities in the future.

I wish I could play my Steam games on Xbox. I know that the Nvidia Shield TV has such a feature, though it's limited to beta so far.
