Cross play on Windows 10 and Xbox One

Certain multiplayer games offer cross play, which enables people on Xbox One to play with people on PCs and vice versa. Some games that offer cross play let you turn it off; check the game’s settings if you want to play only with people using the same device that you’re using.

A related feature is Xbox Play Anywhere, which—when you own a game—gives you a choice of where to play, Xbox or Windows. Not all Play Anywhere games offer cross play: A game’s editions might be specific to either Xbox or PC, even when that game lets you play with people using the other version. (For questions about Xbox Play Anywhere, see Troubleshoot problems with Xbox Play Anywhere games.)

To see whether a game supports cross play, check details at the Microsoft Store in either Xbox One games or Windows games.

Troubleshooting

  • Make sure your game supports cross play. Refer to online game details or ask in the game communities.
  • Make sure you’re signed in to Xbox Live and the Xbox Live service status is up and running.
  • Make sure your friends are online and connected to Xbox Live.
  • Make sure other online devices on your network aren’t interfering with your game.
  • Ask your friends to follow the same steps—the problem could be on their side.
