    xbox family account - cross platform restrictions


    Hi There, I have family Microsoft account and my son is on our account as a child. For some reason when he logs into the xbox to play on fortnite with his mates he gets a box appear on the screen cross platform restriction which then doesn't allow him to
    play with his mates. I am assuming it is a restriction I have put on but I cannot seem to find out how to solve the problem can anyone help, in any responses please be as specific as possible as I am no guru at this sort of thing

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Fortnite Cross Platform Play on Child Account

    I've had the same issue with my child's Xbox account. The issue is The child account has restrictions on allowing cross-platform on the Xbox. I haven't heard of a time frame on when or if this will change.

    Epic Friends - Cross Platform

    Cross platform will work on the platform not the account.

    On a Windows system you need to make sure all accounts are added to the PC and added into the FAMILY on the PC.

    On the Xbox, the account that has purchased the game will need to be signed in OR have the account that purchased the game set as HOME.

    Fortnite cross platform

    This is not the case every time there is a message saying that cross platform needs to be enabled. And the option is not available on the child account

    Some titles require an account be an adult account to use certain modes. This is by design and the account would have to wait to be an adult account to use this feature.
    If that's the case, it seems a little silly. Let's let them play the game but let's restrict it so they can't cross platform play. Which is no different then actually playing the game. Is there a way to confirm if that's the case as there is no such specific
    error say that's its been restricted

    Multi-platform lobbies?

    No, there won't be cross-platform lobbies, even within the same family.
