  1. Unable to join or invite friends to worlds


    hi, wondering if anyone could help, myself and my friends are not able to invite any other people to our respective worlds, have already contacted Xbox support but had no luck, have already uninstalled and reinstalled the game, reset to factory settings
    etc. But no luck so far.

    Thanks

    :)

    i cant play online in minecraft windows 10

    Whenever I try to join my friends world (we are on different networks) I

    can't join. It says "Unable to connect to world." I make sure he

    invites me to his world before I try to join. When I click the Accept

    button from the invite, it loads up Minecraft

    and says "Generating world Locating server." Then it says nothing. It does this for about 20

    seconds before saying "Unable to connect to world." I cant connect

    to public multiplayer servers or realms either.

    Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition: I can't join my friend's world

    Whenever I try to join my friends world (we are on different networks) I can't join. It says "Unable to connect to world." I make sure he invites me to his world before I try to join. When I click the Accept button from the invite, it loads
    up Minecraft and says "Generating world Locating server" It does this for about 20 seconds before saying "Unable to connect to world." I can still connect to public multiplayer servers but I can't join his world.

    Hey TSx BentVader!

    We can help you take a closer look here - we'd like to get some further info from you to best assist. Can you reply back with the following info?

    1. What device are you playing Minecraft on when this happens?

    2. Are the friends you're trying to invite playing from the same type of device, or a different platform?

    3. What happens when you try to invite a player to your world? If there are any specific error messages you see, please post a screenshot of that in your reply.

    4. So we don't retrace anything, can you let us know what troubleshooting steps (if any) you've already tried?

    Can't join to my friends world in minecraft xbox one edition

    I can only join my friends world when he invites me to his workd, but their world does not pop up when I go on the friends tab. They also have their world on friends only and he already has me added as a friend. All my other friends can join his world
    except for me. The only way I can join is if they invite me. I need help with this pls

    Minecraft PE can't join friends through Xbox

    Hi there I know from experience that it is sometimes to do with an update where basically it acts like you no longer have a "licence" for the game on pocket edition. The only way it gets fixed for me is literally waiting for a new update. I am not convinced
    that is the case here though.

    Have either of you enrolled in the beta programme? If either of you have you will be unable to play with friends until both of the accounts unenroll from the beta.

    If you did not join beta is it a server you are trying to join or a world that was created? As if it is a server you need realms in order to play together. If not then check the mp settings to make sure that its all set to allow friends to join or it could
    also be that its set to invite only if it is your friend will need to invite you.

    Unfortunatly if none of this is the case I am unsure of how else to fix it. I hope what little I could provide helps and I hope you and your friend are safe and well during these difficult times.
    it's already like that since the first time we bought the game, which was 2 years ago. Neither of us enrolled in the beta program. I'm trying to join the world that's created by my friend when he's in the world. his world shows up in my "friends" section
    but everytime i tried to join it says "unable to connect to world". His world multiplayer setting is set to Friends of friends. the notification pops up when he invite me but i still can't join. I can join him a few times by restarting our devices and trying
    to join again. but it only works sometimes, and I can't join again after i left his world. but thank you for replying, we will wait until the next update and see if anything changes. I hope you're safe as well, again.. thank you so much for replying.
