  1. Minecraft for Windows 10 - unable to accept friend request to join realm


    I am trying to join a realm on Minecraft. I have received an invitation from my friend who plays on XBox. I play on my PC. When I try to join the realm I get the following message: "You cannot play online multiplayer because of how your Microsoft account is set up." I don't know what settings need to be changed to allow this. Please help.

    :)

    Unable to join a Minecraft realm on childs account

    Hi there,

    I have an adult Microsoft account for Win10 and I have created child accounts for my daughters, also on Win 10. One daughter can accept my Minecraft realm invite and join the game fine but my other child cannot on their account. I first made sure both child
    accounts had the same permission but it didn't help. Then I set the child account to full permissions but still cannot accept invite nor join the realm. I amended permissions on the general privacy tab in "family" for my daughters account and also the Xbox
    360 and Xbox One tabs, though I understand it works on the Xbox One account primarily for Win 10 Minecraft. To be clear, this is on the Sign in to your Microsoft account page.

    We can see the invite, but when clicking on it, it says:

    error: You cannot play online multiplayer through Xbox Live because of how your account is set up. This can be changed in your privacy & online safety settings on Xbox.com.

    If I launch the realm on my computer, my daughter can see it in the Minecraft Friend's tab under Joinable Friends. When she joins, she gets an error message saying:

    Failed attempting to join realm. Please try again later. Unable to connect to realm.

    Again, my other daughter can access this fine and I've tried amending every setting in both the Microsoft Family and the Xbox website setting, but no joy.

    We are all on the same version of Windows 10 Minecraft and also Windows 10 plus latest updates.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as we're entirely out of ideas and things to try now.

    Moved from: Windows / Windows 10 / Family

    Minecraft Windows 10 Joining Realms is impossible

    I was recently sent an invite to join a Windows 10 minecraft realm; however, when I attempted to accept it I was told that

    You cannot play online multiplayer through your Xbox Live account because of how your account is setup. This can be changed in your privacy & online safety settings on Xbox.com.

    When I went over to my privacy setting it was already set to able to join through Xbox live.

    Additional info

    I have an adult account

    This is Windows 10 mine craft so no Xbox gold is needed.

    I am able to join multiplayer servers and a friend's non-realm world, just not able to accept the invite

    Any other question I would be happy to answer and will check back soon.
