Play Minecraft with friends on Xbox
With a Microsoft account, it’s easy to find your friends. Just add their gamertag or find cross-platform friends and invite them to any of your Minecraft worlds or Realms. You can even get notifications when your friends sign on.
Create or join a Realm
A Microsoft account makes it possible to access Minecraft Realms, a subscription-based service that lets you play online with your friends whenever you want, on your own private server. Use a Microsoft Account to invite up to 10 friends to create, survive, or compete in your private world. They can continue the adventure even when you’re offline.
With a Microsoft account, it’s easy to keep track of all the amazing things you do in Minecraft. All your achievements are automatically recorded and kept with your gamertag for bragging rights with your friends.
Join the Club
A Microsoft account makes playing with others even better. The official Minecraft Club on Xbox makes it easy to find new friends to play with anytime you’re online. With over 40,000 members, you’ll always be able to find someone to join you for a build, dig or adventure.
