    Can an account that has both Win10 and Xbox One version of Minecraft play together?


    I purchased Minecraft for my Xbox One, which is the cross platform version. I'm wanting to buy the game for my Windows 10 laptop as well. The main reason that I'm wanting to do this is because I'm wanting to play with my son. I have a big enough credit my MS Account, but I need to know whether the same account with both the Win10 and Xbox One version of the application can play together in the same world?

    :)

  2. Minecraft Windows 10 Version stuck in trial mode

    Hi John,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    It looks like your Minecraft game that is stuck on trial mode, has something to do with your Xbox account, so please try the below steps and check if you are able to play the full version of Minecraft.



    Launch the Xbox app > Sign-in to the Xbox application
    using your Microsoft Account (Account which you used to purchase Minecraft) > Browse the games to find Minecraft and click on the Play button to the play the Minecraft game and check if it is still showing the trail version.



    If you are still seeing the trail version, then I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned in
    How to uninstall and reinstall a game on Windows 10 and reinstall
    Minecraft.



    If you are still facing the same issue, then we recommend that you get in touch with our
    Xbox Support Team. You may contact them via chat support or schedule a callback at your preferred date
    and time.

  3. Minecraft

    Hi Reinis,

    There are several editions of Minecraft. Each edition works best on the platform it was intended to.
    Minecraft: Java and Minecraft: Windows 10 editions were created for Windows 10 devices. There's a different version available for an Xbox One platform. To answer your question, since the version you have is for Windows 10,
    you'll need to purchase the game's Xbox One version. You may purchase Minecraft: Xbox One version on this

    link
    .

    Our Xbox developers are collating suggestions for the improvement of your Xbox gaming experience. Recently, we've created the
    Xbox Play Anywhere feature. This allows Windows 10 games to be played on Xbox One and vice versa. Based on the list, Minecraft is not yet an
    XPA game. You may refer to this
    link
    for additional details regarding the XPA games. Since Minecraft is not yet an
    XPA game, we recommend submitting a post to the
    Xbox UserVoice
    page and request this game to be included as an Xbox Play Anywhere.

    We hope we're able to answer your query.

    If there's anything else you want to clarify, don't hesitate to get back to us. We'd be glad to further assist you.
