    [Xbox Game Bar PC] - Notifications not working


    For almost a year now, my game bar is not showing me any notifications. Not about achievements, no party invites, no game invites, nothing. No sound plays and I don't see the notification either.

    I've reported this problem three times now in the Feedback app, but it's still the same story.

    It's getting quite annoying when I'm trying to play games with my friends. Here's what I've tried so far:

    • Resetting the Game Bar app and settings
    • Making sure Game Bar is allowed to show notifications
    • Making sure Focus Assist of off
    • Change settings for Fullscreen Optimization
    • Even a Windows 10 repair install
    • Went over all app defaults by protocol and set Xbox Game Bar where I could

    I do notice that there 2 entries of Game Bar when I look through the 'Set defaults by app' list, unsure if that's related.

    My Game Bar version is 5.822.7211.0

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Xbox Companion App Party Invitations

    You need to turn the notifications on in your PC itself. Just go to your PC settings to find where the notification settings are and turn it on. Make sure you get on your game settings in your pc and make sure game bar is on as well.

    How to disable "Claim your points!" notifications on Xbox game bar social notifications?

    Thank you for the clarifications, so it looks like the Game Bar is the only program that does not have a setting to silence or ignore those. I assume, even with the Epic Games store, FH5 is an Xbox game that requires Xbox authentication, so regardless of platform, the system will connect those achievements in regard to rewards all the same.

    If that is the case with the Game Bar App I think most if not all other notifications appear in the Xbox App - that is achievements and party invites. I would recommend testing it personally, as I have seen these notifications in the App myself but want to make sure this works for you as well. I've sent an ask to a team about it to see if there is a way to single out these notifications, but overall, it may be easier, for now, to silence game bar notifications completely - not the Mobile or Xbox App on PC and see if the relevant notifications appear there, rather than the Game Bar.

    When I have a solution or answer from the aforementioned team, I'll share what answer I can from them.

    Thank you,

    Why cant i receive party notifications on my PC with the "Xbox Console Companion" app anymore?

    Hey there, VinnyKee

    Most of these settings have been moved in the Windows Game bar. Press Win+G to load up the game bar where you will see notifications.

    On my PC and Surface, I do get notifications through the game bar

    Regards,

    Why does Microsoft keep removing the ability to uninstall unwanted applications like XBox, the Game Bar, etc.?

    Windows game bar is a nuisance to me, i have all notifications turned off on my pc and with the app itself and i still get notifications from it across my screen. i dont use my pc for gaming i just want this app to stop sending unwanted notifications when
    i have them all turned off

    Console Companion messages from friends keep repeating over and over again in Notifications

    It supports messages. It supports person-to-person messages, one-on-one chat. What it doesn't support is Group Messaging, which is what the Game Bar is for. The problem isn't with the Console Companion or Game Bar, it's with how the messages are being sent
    through the Notifications app (in the lower right hand corner of any PC) and how message notifications are endlessly repeating, both in the Notifications window, and the pop-ups that slide in from the right side of the screen.
