    Stuck on 'locating server' trying to join a friends world Minecraft


    So a group of friends and I made and play on a Minecraft bedrock world, they play on PS4 and I'm on PC. Everything was fine until one day I tried to join and randomly got stuck on the locating server screen. They made the world and since they are all on PS they can all connect no problem. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no result and also trying to join on mobile, which also gets me stuck on locating server. any help?

    :)

    Stuck on 'locating server' trying to join a friends world Minecraft

    Hello, dkkt23. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    Would you please follow the steps below?

    - Go to Start > Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Microsoft Store > Advanced Options > Repair, then Reset.

    - Go to Start > Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Xbox App > Advanced Options > Repair, then Reset.

    - Go to Start > Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Gaming Services > Advanced Options > Repair, then Reset.

    - Restart your computer. Open the Microsoft store and sign in with your Microsoft account. Open the Xbox App and sign in with the same account as the Microsoft store. Open the Xbox Console Companion app (install it if you don't have it) and also sign in with the same account.

    - Check your computer region/country and language and please make sure it is the same as your Microsoft account (https://account.microsoft.com/profile). Also check if your time zone and date/time is correct.

    - Go to Start > Type services and press enter. Find all Xbox services (Xbox accessory management service, Live auth manager, Live game save, Live networking service, Gaming services). Right click on each one of them > Properties > Set the startup type to Automatic. Also start them.

    - Try to play Minecraft and see if the issue persists.

    Feel free to ask back any questions and please let me know how it goes.

    Minecraft bedrock cross platform locating server

    My friends can join eachother but when i try to join it just get stuck on locating server and never does anything im struggling and ive reinstalled my game and my console, btw im on a ps4 and they are too and i connected my xbox account. The only
    reason i was on my bros ps4 was to be able to talk to them while playing minecraft anyway its not working.
    I have had the same problem, I get stuck on the locating server screen whenever I try to enter my friends world. Me and they all play on ps4 and we don't know the cause of the problem.

    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!

    I can not get into a server a friend of mine

    Minecraft Windows 10 Edition.

    My friend X and my friends can join my game server.

    I, however, am the only one who can not enter the game server of my friend X.

    When I try to enter his server (both on the Xbox and from the game itself), he can not locate his server and then an error message pops up "Unable to connect to the world".

    We've verified the network with the Xbox app and it's all right.

    The problem only exists between me and him.

    What could be it?
