    family friends / chat

    Hi Rev,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. We understand you are unable to add friends on a child account. We recommend to adjust the privacy settings. We will let you know which ones to change. You need to log onto the parent account then choose the child's profile
    then Xbox live privacy. Then go to view details and customize>under friends and clubs>set allow to you can add friends. Then under communication and multiplayer>allow on join multiplayer games, allow on you can play with people outside Xbox live, Everybody
    on the next two dealing with communication. Reason these are set this way, is if for example they play Fortnite, they need these enabled due to crossplay. This game and others allow multiple platforms like PC, Xbox, Nintendo switch to all play together.

    Hope this helps.

    Are all of the upcoming Xbox One bundles bad news for the Kinect?

    I haven't used Skype on my Phone ever and I haven't used it on my MacBook since I got the X1. Chatting with family interstate with the whole family around the lounge is so much easier than crowding around a laptop on the kitchen Bench. Also snapping Skype
    now and and chatting with a friend while I still play a game can't be done on my other to devices. But I can see that is not for everyone. I even enjoy the Auto sign in from Kinect recognition amongst the family.

    Do YOU play with chat through speakers?

    Chat with Kinect or through speakers is not an option. I have a family and friends that are often in the same room with me. They don't need to hear what goes on in my game, my teammates don't need to hear what goes on in my house.

    Xbox one, how can I see my child’s chats or can I see them if he’s deleted them

    Hello SixSummer,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. We understand you would like to know if it is possible to review your sons chats.

    On the console if you go to the communication tab, all chats show here. If it has been deleted there is no way of recovering the chat unfortunately. IF the other one that it was sent to is friend or family member. They still may have the chat on their console.
    Unfortunately support is unable to recover these messages either.

    Hope this helps.

    Brad
