Can players play Minecraft on Android and Xbox One devices together?

Thanks to the Minecraft “Better Together” update, players who want to play the world building game together can do so, just make sure they are all on the Bedrock version of Minecraft.

The Java edition of Minecraft, while still allowing cross-platform play, only allows it for PC, Mac, and Linux. For those hoping to play with others on any platform, including Android / iOS devices and consoles, players will need to play the Bedrock edition. The Bedrock edition is slightly different from Java in several mechanical ways due to the fact that it is made uniform for most platforms, but it can still be incredibly enjoyable, especially with friends in the platform division.

In order for Minecraft players to enjoy multiplayer together between platforms in the Bedrock edition, they will need to configure a few things. Compared to setting up a server or local area network or buying a Minecraft realm in Java, the process is significantly easier. All it takes is pressing a few buttons and before you know it, players will be able to enjoy a world of Minecraft with their friends.

  1. In Minecraft’s main menu, players will need to log into their Microsoft account. Xbox One players will already be logged into one at startup, but other platforms will need to log into the account before continuing. Console players will also need to have an active subscription to whatever service they are currently using, such as Xbox Live or Nintendo Switch Online.
  2. Once logged in, players will want to load or create a new Minecraft world. Once properly loaded, the player will need to open their pause menu.
  3. At the far right of the pause menu there should be an “Invite to game” button. By pressing that, players will have a number of options to invite players to the game, but the button they will want to select is labeled “find cross-platform friends.”
  4. Players will want to find their friends via their Minecraft ID / Gamertag and select “add friend”.
  5. Once friends have been added to a player’s friends list, they will be seen when they become available in “friends online”. Players will want to check the box next to their Minecraft ID and then hit the “send invite” button.
  6. Once the player has received the invitation, they can enter the world at their discretion, and the players can play together to their heart’s content.

Please note that not all Minecraft worlds are cross-platform due to the different content releases in the Bedrock edition that are console specific. For example, the “Mario Mash-Up” world will only work for Switch users to play with other Switch users, as the content is exclusive to Nintendo.
