In the fantastic game Minecraft, users may create whole worlds, engage in conquest, and much more. The game is available for solo or multiplayer play. However, playing the game with a friend or pals makes it the most enjoyable. I’ll explain how to add friends to Minecraft on PC in this article.

Minecraft gives you several choices for playing in groups with other people, including:

  • LAN
  • Online server
  • Splitscreen
  • Minecraft Realms

The split-screen option is only accessible while playing with friends on PS4 and Xbox.

Requirements to play multiplayer Minecraft

The first need for playing Minecraft with friends is that you have a working internet connection and that your game is running on the same version as the server. Your main menu should include the latest version of your game at the bottom. Change it if it differs from the server.

How To Add Friends On Minecraft PC

Find the Xbox App for Windows 10 or download the most recent version from the official website. Open the Xbox app after installation, then select Social from the top bar. You can view your friend list here. A buddy can be chosen from the current list or found using their Xbox Gamer Tag. We can add the friend to the game after you’ve added them to the Xbox account.

Launch the game with the Minecraft Launcher by using the desktop shortcut. Select Play to start the game now. To access Realms, choose the Edit button. Click on Members once you are in the Realm Settings. The friends who have previously been invited will be visible to you, and a button to add new members will be located at the top. To add a friend, click the invite button next to their name.

You might also utilize the Realms Invite Link to invite people to your realm. With this function, you may quickly add people to your realm without sending out individual invitations to each one. This method is effective.

To invite players, offer them your realm’s unique Invite link. When a player clicks on this link, they are asked to sign in or establish an Xbox Live account if they don’t already have one. The player is immediately added to your Realm’s whitelist once they log in. The participants can enter the game even if you are not online.
