When playing games it can be more fun to get your friends involved too. Minecraft Bedrock is amazing fun when you join up with friends online to do some mining and building, and battling enemies together. So with that in mind, let’s find out how to add friends in Minecraft Bedrock.
Adding Friends in Minecraft Bedrock
Minecraft Bedrock is available to play on various platforms, unlike Java which is only available on Windows, Mac and Linux. Bedrock can be downloaded and played for free on the following platforms:
- Xbox One & Series X/S

With so many platforms available players can make and add friends from all over, as long as they are also running Bedrock. To add friends you must all have Microsoft accounts and each have a subscription on your chosen platforms, if needed, to give you access to online features. This could be Xbox Gold, or Nintendo Switch Online, etc.
Adding friends in Minecraft Bedrock is so simple. Just follow the steps below:
- Sign in with your Microsoft account

And that is it- now you have a whole world to explore with your Minecraft friends.
Once you have invited all your friends you can start mining and creating! If you have any issues with friends online you can report their behaviour in the same menu where you added them to the game.
That is all the information you need to start adding friends and playing together in Minecraft Bedrock! Good luck and have fun!
