  1. Unable to play Minecraft online. Says I need to check my multiplayer settings


    Split from this thread.​


    I’ve tried time and time again to make an online multiplayer world, but it says I can’t do that due to “how my account is set up.” I’ve checked my privacy settings so many times, and everything is set to allow under Xbox One/Windows 10 Privacy Settings. I’ve tried closing out Minecraft, i’ve tried logging out and logging back in, i’ve tried rebooting the console, but nothing works.​

    :)

    Can't play online multiplayer on Minecraft Windows 10

    When I try to accept a new realm membership from a friend on Minecraft Windows 10, it says I "cannot play online multiplayer through xbox live because of how my account is set up." So I went online and changed my settings to allow me to play online, went
    back to minecraft, and got the same error. I have tried rebooting, refreshing and closing then reopening Minecraft.

    Please help!

    i can't play multiplayer in minecraft windows edition

    Hi BASSWAGON,

    Normally, multiplayer gaming requires you to have an internet connection so that you will be able to connect to the game server and play with your friends. If WiFi connection is not available for you, I suggest that you connect your computer to a phone hotspot
    as a workaround. In this way, you will be able to connect to the Minecraft servers and be able to play together with your friend.

    Let us know if you need clarification. We'd be glad to further assist you.
