    Hello. I can't invite people and appear offline to them in xbox companion app. The only solution I found is to change privacy settings, but those are missing from my account completely.

    \"Fing group\" asks to change privacy settings

    But you can't change it here

    Things I tried:

    - adding friend's account to family and vice versa. Friend's accounts appears on this page and if I click on it a lot of settings appear, but for my account there is only two settings. Same if he adds my account, no settings for my account.

    - creating/removing family

    - different browser

    - reinstalling companion app, logging out, etc

    - fixing settings on router. Now "NAT type" shows as "Open" (not "Moderate") but issue still exists.
