    Joining a friend's Minecraft multiplayer world created by a mobile device on my Xbox One


    I've been trying to join one of my friend's world on Minecraft but I keep getting the error saying "unable to connect to world" when I join using my friend's tab and when he invites me. We both have the most recent version, open NATs, and both of our settings allow us to play with different platforms. I can easily join servers like Hive and CubeCraft. I've tried to log out of my account on both Xbox and Minecraft itself. I've reset my console. He's easily had other friends join on their Xbox's but mine seems to be the only one with an issue....any other things I can do to get it to work?

    :)

    Your friends are not playing Minecraft right now

    This is for normal worlds hosted on other devices on my local area network. I've tested hosting worlds on android tablets, android phones, ipads, and a dedicated bedrock server running on my PC. In all cases, the mobile devices are able to connect to other
    multiplayer worlds on my LAN, but the XBox shows the "Your friends are not playing Minecraft right now" message despite being able to see the other worlds (as indicated by the count under the friends tab).

    Minecraft issue [mobile]

    I play Minecraft with my friend over mobile. It was working the whole time, until now.

    The issue is, when I am in my world, my friend tries to join but it says “Unable to connect to world”.

    We both use the same version of Minecraft [1.14.60 as of 6/16/20]. I also have multiplayer set on the world too.

    I tried inviting him, but the issue persisted. I tried joining his world, but it showed me the message.

    My Xbox account is allowed to play multiplayer and no parental controls are set.

    What do I do? Please reply as soon as possible.

    Thanks.
    The mc servers may have been down, or all the multiplayer servers that host your world are all on the newer versions

    Minecraft Servers Xbox One S

    Hello there!

    Unfortunately, such worlds cannot be found on the console as some of these worlds were created on a PC and are not compatible to the Xbox One console.

    On the console, users send their friends invites to user created worlds/servers that are only available to console users. In this instance, Crazy Pig is a server that was created on the PC.

    This MCXONE: Servers website located at the Minecraft Forums
    details Xbox One specific servers.

    Try this out and let us know if there as an option to join the servers listed there.

    Best wishes!

    Cannot See Friend/Invites Minecraft Xbox One LAN

    Same here. The friends tab in Minecraft xbox changes the number underneath it as my LAN friends enter their world on their devices, so xbox is definitely recognising that they are there. I see that number change within seconds of them starting on their
    device. But underneath that, it still says "your friends are not playing Minecraft right now" when they quite clearly are. My friends on other devices see each others joinable worlds, but I cant see those same worlds from my xbox. They can see my xbox worlds
    and join, but i cannot see theirs. Help!
