    How to: Child Account Set up to Enable Join Multiplayer Games


    Before I start: sorry for my unclear English, I will try to explain my concern by editing the question, if necessary.

    I have a private Microsoft account and a connected XBOX-account. I also have a child, which is part of my family in the Microsoft world.

    Our purpose is that the child can play Minecraft with friends (multiplayer). He is using the Minecraft App for Android only.

    I have read some instructions for family managing in microsoft and how to be able to join multiplayer games and finally about the option to use Minecraft as multiplayer game in a local network.

    Now I have two questions:

    1. How can I set up family settings in the XBOX management browser-app/tool? I cannot find the right place to do this, do I really need a native, mobile App in order to do this? The linked descriptions are not very telling in this regard.
    2. Is this local network multiplay thing possible with Minecraft Android Apps at all?

    :)

    How to: Child Account Set up to Enable Join Multiplayer Games

    Hi Malte, I hope you're doing great despite the issue you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regard to your concern.

    Let me guide you. Kindly sign in to https://account.microsoft.com/family using your Microsoft account and then add your child as a member from there. Once confirmed, you may proceed to https://account.xbox.com/settings, you should see your child's Gamertag from there please click that and allow the setting on this screenshot that has an arrow.

    Yes, it is possible to play the game local multiplayer.

    Converted Mojang Account to Microsoft, now I can't play multiplayer minecraft (Windows 10)

    Hello @jethorpe! I hope that you are doing well today!

    It seems like your account is a child account in a family group or under a parental account. To enable the multiplier on a child account, here's what to do:

    1. Log in to Xbox settings with the parent Microsoft account.
    2. Select the child account's profile.
    3. Select Xbox One/Windows 10 Online and choose Allow for Join multiplayer games AND You can create and join clubs.
    4. To enable chat for people not on the person's friends list, they will need to go to their privacy settings and enable Others can communicate .
    I hope this helps you out!

    Cannot friend people or join party's on xbox windows 10 app

    Hi,

    You will receive an error about privacy settings when joining Xbox Live Parties if your account settings are not set up correctly or you are using a child account. If you are using a child account, you will need a parent account's permission to change the
    privacy and online safety settings so you can join Xbox Live Parties and multiplayer games.

    To better assist you with your concern, please provide the following information:

    • Are you using a child account? To check, you can log in to this
      link
      with your Microsoft Account.
    • Are you able to play multiplayer games online using the same account?

    You can also contact Xbox Chat Support on this
    link
    to securely verify your account and check if there is a parent account attached to it.

    I am not using a child account and cannot join multiplayer online games.
    Thank you for your response. To resolve your concern, please make sure that you enable the settings to allow your profile to play multiplayer games online by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    If you need further assistance, feel free to reply to this post anytime.

    Cant even play with my cousin after spending 20 pounds on Minecraft

    Hello @Jenson Robinson!

    It seems that your account is a child account under a parental account or linked to a family group. Only the parental account can change the settings on your account. Here's how:

    1. Log in to Xbox settings with the parent Microsoft account.
    2. Select the child account's profile.
    3. Select Xbox One/Windows 10 Online and choose Allow for Join multiplayer games AND You can create and join clubs.
    4. To enable chat for people not on the person's friends list, they will need to go to their privacy settings and enable Others can communicate .
    I hope this helps you out!
