  1. Why are settings for the Microsoft website and Xbox so difficult to use? Minecraft Realms...


    So first things first, the xbox app, the Microsoft website and the xbox website are all in my mind terrible, including friends and family. It is not user friendly in any shape way or form, nor is it child friendly.

    So I had a Realm that I wanted to purchase and I got the error I needed to have permission, now mind you I'm 17 almost 18 and I can use most programs and websites to find settings and ways to customize it that best fits me and my needs. Now I will explain what I had to go through today, so my account was one that I had created when it was needed now mind you I was 15 and had no need for a realms so I didn't need it until today, in order for me to simply buy it and play I had to make a whole new Microsoft account, go into the account connected to the ps4, now mind you once a account is connected it is permanent so I had to go though this because I couldn't remove it, So on the account connected to the ps4 I had to invite the new account on the family page and set it as organizer then remove myself go to the organizer account and log into that and add the account connected to the ps4 back as a member account and then go to the xbox website log into the organizer account and then click on this little circle at the top right hope to fluff you see the three small dots on the little pop up square and click it then to xbox settings, the privacy, and then select the member account go to windows 10, privacy settings and turn on cross platform play over xbox live and create and join groups to allow. now mind you I had to do this just so I could buy a realms, and you know more children play minecraft than adults so why does this need to be so complicated. not to mention when attempting to do this on a cellphone it is impossible because the website is messed up. why did this have to be so complicated, and there isn't anywhere where I can find this information for this issue anywhere, this isn't user friendly and its no wonder more people play on the ps than xbox, it isn't user friendly nor does anything give a proper explanation on how to do anything with these services. this is my question, why are these services so complicated when they honestly don't need to be.

    :)

    How do I change this setting from the Microsoft or Xbox website? I cannot figure out how to do it and I do not own an Xbox, and all the articles I am finding require you to own an Xbox.

    If you are on console, go to settings. In a certain column, you will see a place called subscriptions. Click on that and select manage. It will take you to a Microsoft website that will give you a choice to turn off the recurring bill. Here is the link
    to the website, https://account.microsoft.com/services/?refd=support.microsoft.com

    Hello Oscar,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your issue. Sounds like the cross play is not enabled in settings for your friends. Were you able to look at the
    privacy and online settings? We will give you the
    steps to change the exact ones for the cross platform use.





    1. You will go to the Xbox websiteand sign in.


    2. Click on privacy settings.


    3. Once in settings, under the picture see Privacy, Xbox One/Windows 10 online safety. Select the Xbox one/Windows 10 online safety.


    4. You will see you gamertag you are looking for one setting:


    5. The two you want to make sure say allow and everybody are:
      1. "you can play with people outside of Xbox live" set to allow


      2. Now click on privacy you are looking for one setting:

        "you can communicate outside of Xbox live with voice and text" set to allow



    Hope this helps.

    Hi AlexHERnandeZ999

    To play on a Minecraft Realm server, you need the permission to be able to join clubs.

    When you say you change the setting, how are you doing this? Website, App, Console? The app is great for changing these settings if you have an Android or iOS device.

    If you are being prompted to change the privacy settings then you must me part of a Microsoft Family account. Who is the organiser?

    Come back to us and we will see if we can help.
