    Ok, so I was trying to join one of my friend's realms for the first time on Nintendo Switch. I received an invite from him, so I went to accept it, but a message popped up saying that I couldn't play online multiplayer because of how my Microsoft account was set up. I went to the link (aka.ms/accoutsettings) it listed that would allow me to change my settings. After I went there, I went to my account page and clicked on the privacy tab near the top of the screen. On that screen, there were no tabs related to online play. The tabs it has listed are "Browsing history, Search history, Location activity, Voice activity, Media activity, Product and service activity, Product and service performance, Cortana's Notebook, LinkedIn, and Health activity." I have no idea what to do to allow for online play on my Switch through this Microsoft Account. I've tried searching for similar issues online, but I've come up with nothing.

    :)

  2. Minecraft on nintendo switch

    Hi MC Gamer666,

    Since you've registered on Minecraft Microsoft edition, you can only play this game on our server only (Xbox account).

    Nintendo has a different server from us. They have a separate client or server. In order to play
    Minecraft in Nintendo Switch, you need to register an account on their platform. To register, go to their official website and create an account. Once done, use this account to log in to
    Minecraft in your Nintendo Switch.

    If you would like me to provide additional advice, simply respond to this thread. I will get notified and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can.

    Minecraft on Nintendo Switch

    Hi PerkinP

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    Q: What’s a Microsoft Account and why do I need it for a Nintendo Switch?

    A: A Microsoft Account is a free account you can sign-in on device that allows Minecraft players on Switch to play with others on non-Nintendo devices like iOS, Android, Xbox One and Windows 10 via cross-play, Realms or Servers. Having a Microsoft Account also
    enables the portability of your MINECOINS and marketplace purchases to other devices and platforms. For more information go here (https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/games/game-title...).
    To create an account go to
    https://aka.ms/accountsettings


    Q: Now that I have a Microsoft account, how do I sign into it from my Nintendo Switch?

    a. On the Minecraft game home screen, click “Sign in with a Microsoft account”

    b. It’ll bring up a screen to go to:
    http://aka.ms/remoteconnect
    with a unique 8 digit code

    c. Enter the URL on another device (PC or Mobile phone)

    d. Follow the instructions on the website by entering the code and complete signing into your Microsoft account.

    Q: How do I find my friends on their Microsoft account?

    a. Now that you’ve signed into your Microsoft account, Click “Play” on the homescreen

    b. Toggle to the right onto the “Friends” tab

    c. Click the button to “Add Friend”

    d. Find friends by entering their Microsoft Gamertag

    Q: I keep entering my friend’s ID into Cross-Platform friends and can’t find them. Why?

    Make sure you are entering your friend’s Gamertag correctly. Please note that you are only able to enter in a player ID for Microsoft’s Gamertag. Other player IDs from other platforms are not supported at this time.
