    Unable to join game cross-platform (no visible game invite)?


    My friend is playing Mincecraft on XBOX 360 and I'm on the Windows 10 version. I've added him as a friend on the Xbox console companion, but he also sent me a friend request which is still marked as pending despite him appearing as a friend on my screen.
    He's tried inviting me to an xbox party and I got no notification, I've tried inviting him to my game and he has no notification - how can we join a game together?

    :)

    Hi, thank you for your response. I had read an article about the Better Together update that said it would include Xbox for cross-platforming (didn't specify that Xbox 360 wouldn't be included) - guess I should have done some more digging. I already had
    the java version of Minecraft and only bought bedrock to play together - do you know if I can get a refund now for the bedrock version of Minecraft?

    The "Better Together" update was an update that rolled out somewhere along side the "Aquatic" update. What this did was cross platform for Xbox One and Windows 10 on the version of Minecraft known as "Bedrock Edition" which is also technically considered
    the Windows 10 version. "Better Together" allowed for anyone that had the version of Minecraft known as "Xbox One Edition" (which is the older Xbox One version that came before Bedrock that was built off of the Xbox 360 version) could upgrade for free so they
    could play the new W10/Bedrock version. The Xbox 360 Version hasn't been supported since about the "Aquatic" update and I believe that was almost 2 years ago.

    This official Minecraft FAQ from a few years about the update should be very clear. I'd take the time to read it!

    Games arent cross platforming, so you have to join games on your platform.
