How to Play Minecraft on PC and Xbox One – Guide

Windows 10, Xbox One and Series S/X PCs, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, iOS and iPadOS devices and Android smartphones can play “Minecraft: Bedrock Edition”. You can add friends and play with them on any system if you are playing “Minecraft: Bedrock Edition”. Just make sure they’re playing “Bedrock Edition” too.

“Minecraft” has built a fantastic multiplayer mode over the last few years. The best part is that this multiplayer option is cross-platform (or crossplay) compatible, which means you can play with friends on any system. Just keep in mind that there are two separate versions of “Minecraft”, and each has a slightly different crossplay. The most important thing to remember is that “Minecraft” can be played with anyone who has the same version as you.

Here’s everything you need to know about how “Minecraft” allows cross-platform gameplay if you want to play with your friends.

How to crossplay in ‘Minecraft: Bedrock Edition’

To play cross-platform, you just need to add and invite your friends to your world. See how:

  • After launching “Minecraft”, log in to your Microsoft account (Xbox One users will have an account automatically). you will see a button for this from the main menu if you are not already logged in. Console gamers will also need an online subscription for their devices such as Xbox Live or Nintendo Switch Online.
  • Load an existing world or create a new one and start it. Once your world is loaded, open the game pause menu.
  • Click “Invite to Game” on the far right and select the “Find Cross-Platform Friends” option on the next screen.
  • Find your friends using their Minecraft ID, also known as a gamertag, and select “Add Friend”.
  • Friends added and available for multiplayer will appear under “Friends Online”. Check the box next to the gamertag and click “Send 1 invite”. When they accept, they will be carried into your world.
  • For example, on Nintendo Switch, you cannot share the “Mario Mash-Up” model world with friends on other platforms. You can only share it with other Switch users.

    ‘Minecraft: Java Edition’ lets you play cross-platform on PC, Mac and Linux

    “Minecraft: Java Edition” is the original version of “Minecraft” and while it is not playable on consoles, it is the only version available for Mac and Linux users.

    “Java” users can play with other “Java” players, regardless of whether they are running the game on a Windows, Linux or Apple operating system.

    Playing multiplayer with “Java” is a little more complicated than “Bedrock”, but it’s not difficult once you’re familiar with it. These are some of your options:

  • You can use a public Minecraft server or create your own and invite friends using an IP address
  • You can pay for Minecraft Realms, where Mojang hosts multiplayer servers for you, but it costs money.
  • Or you can play together by sharing a local area network, or LAN, which means you will have to be in the same place as the other players.
  • Final note
