    Can't Add Friends on XBOX GAMES App


    Sorry only saw support forums for 360, One and Windows Phone and not Surface devices so decided to put my issue here.

    Me and my friend both "follow" each other on Xbox One but any attempt to add each other as friends or send friend requests via our Windows Games app on our Surfaces or even via Xbox.com gets an error message. "Can't send friend request. Please try again"
    error EVERY time for months now.

    Maybe the system thinks we're already friends because we follow each other on Xbox One but because that system doesn't have Friends despite the confusing labelling of people you follow being called Friends it can't connect us on Windows Xbox.

    I only have about 10 Friends on Windows Xbox but am following 13 people on XBOX ONE who I know are also following me back (does that make us friends?)

    :)

    Can't Add Friends on XBOX GAMES App

    People you add are added to your Xbox One friends' list. These are your friends. However, on their profile, you appear as a follower. They can then choose to add you to their friends' list too. Thus you become each other's friends.

    However, Xbox One friendships do not yet to carry over to Xbox.com, Xbox 360, Windows Phone or Windows 8. For this you still need to add each other the old way. The fact that you cannot suggests that one of the following is true:

    - Your friend's list (limit 100) is full;

    - Your friend's friend list is full; or

    - One of you does not have the correct permissions (parentally-imposed) to either add or receive friendship requests.

    The 100 limit on friend's lists is the sum of confirmed friends and pending requests. For instance, you may only have 5 friends confirmed, but if you leave 95 incoming requests pending, that would still fill up your list and leave you unable to add anyone
    else.

    I hope this explanation helps somewhat. Let us know how you get on or if you have any further questions about the matter.
