The new cross-platform support will add to the pool of potential matchmaking friends and will let people play with anyone with a Dead by Daylight ID. Cross-play support is already there on Steam and Windows Store versions of the game. The latest announcement bridges the divide between PC and console players and has increased the chances of more number of players meeting online for a Dead by Daylight game.
While cross-play is possible between PC and consoles now, the mobile version of the game has been left out of this. So, for the time being, mobile players have to play with mobile users only. Having the same game version on all the platforms seems to be the issue, with the mobile version currently not supporting cross-platform compatibility. For now, as per the Dead by Daylight forum, “You will be able to play between Steam, Microsoft Store, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The Dead by Daylight Mobile game is not included in cross-play. Stadia will also join other platforms at launch.” The Stadia version of the game will come out next month.
