  1. Multiplayer not working


    I've spent the better part of two hours now trying to get my son and myself set up to play multiplayer minecraft with no luck. He is trying to play on ipad/nintendo switch and i am on PC. I've gotten him logged into his microsoft account and now it is saying he is not able to play multiplayer because of how is account is set up. I've looked all over every settings page i can find and i'm not seeing any settings to change to fix this issue. I found a similiar thread but the fix listed was for xbox and no help. this is honestly ridiculous that this is so difficult and i am beyond annoyed at

    :)

    A final note, PlayStation users have to pay for online play also Multiplayer not working :) It is only PlayStation 3 users that don't . But ask yourself this: If Microsoft offer free play for online multiplayer, how would you fund the servers needed for Xbox Live?

    • Higher Game Prices?
    • Higher rental Prices?
    • Less servers and availability?
    • Less servers and sustainability?

    Good luck with your suggestion,

    Regards,

    How do I enable multiplayer

    Dear Temiloluwa Akinyemi

    Thank you for posting in the Microsoft community.

    I would like to know what platform or game you are trying to add multiplayer to.

    Below you will find the usual settings for adding multiplayer to XBOX or Minecraft.

    To enable multiplayer in an Xbox game, follow these steps:

    Make sure you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Most multiplayer games on Xbox require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online with others.

    Start the game you want to play multiplayer in.

    Look for an option in the game's main menu or settings that allows you to select multiplayer mode or join an online game.

    If prompted, sign in to your Xbox Live account.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to join a multiplayer game or create a party with friends.

    Once you are in a multiplayer game, you can invite friends to join you or join a game with random players.

    Enjoy playing with others online in multiplayer mode.

    =======================================

    To enable multiplayer in Minecraft, follow these steps:

    Launch Minecraft on your Xbox console.

    Make sure you are signed in to your Xbox Live account.

    From the main menu, select "Play" and then choose the world you want to play in.

    Once in the world, press the Start button on your controller to open the in-game menu.

    Select "Invite to Game" to invite friends to join your world or select "Friends" to see a list of your friends who are currently online and invite them to join.

    You can also choose to join a friend's world by selecting "Join Friends" from the main menu.

    If you want to join a public multiplayer server, select "Servers" from the main menu and browse the list of available servers to join.

    Enjoy playing Minecraft with friends in multiplayer mode!

    Best wishes
