Is Cross Platform on Warzone Available for Mobile? 

Cross platform on Warzone for mobile is currently not available. Android and iOS players can play with and against each other but not with any other platforms. Call of Duty: Mobile is a completely separate game and it does not share the same gameplay elements as Warzone. 

Should You Have Cross Platform Enabled on Warzone?

It is strongly recommended to keep crossplay enabled as it reduces queue times. However, there are a lot of cheaters in the game and they are predominantly on PC. If you are a console player and run into a lot of cheaters, you may want to turn it off. Leaving cross platform in Warzone on PC disabled also prevents you from adding friends who play on console. Turning off the setting drastically affects your queue times and it takes longer to find matches as you will be finding matches from a smaller group of players.
