Best Answer

Yes and no.

Only if the device is the same family as the original account. If you have a computer minecraft account and want to play Minecraft on an X-Box you won't be able to.

X-box Minecraft accounts will not work on an iOS Minecraft account, etc.

You still need to buy seperate iOS, Android, X-Box, Playstation and Computer games/accounts. (Mac, Windows and Linux can use the same account tho.)
