    Friends in Games removed?


    Looks like there was a system update and now when i go to People and then Friends, the option to show Friends in Games is gone. Why would this be removed? Now i see Happening Now was added right next to my list of friends which makes the screen convoluted and messy. Friends in Games was very useful. Anyone else have this missing too?

    :)

    You should be able to fix this issue by redownloading your profile. I found a different post with the solution below:

    [quote user="DarkLink 900"]

    Greetings!



    It is recommended that you do delete and re-download your profile, simply follow the guide below:



    1. Go to Settings, and then select System.
    2. Select Storage.
    3. Select All Devices.
    4. Select Gamer Profiles.
    5. Select the gamertag that you want to delete.
    6. Select Delete.
    7. Select one of the following:
    • Select Delete Profile Only. This deletes the profile but leaves saved games and achievements


    Once you have done that, Clear System Cache and do that process 3 times! Now, recover your profile.



    1.Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller (large X button in the center of your controller).

    2.Select Download Profile.

    If you're not seeing Download Profile, press X to sign out of your profile.



    Post back and let us know how it goes! ^_^

    Hey there
    Vega Taken
    ,

    Thanks for letting us know that you're dealing with this problem.

    I could totally see how this could be confusing/frustrating.

    I wanted to ask, what platforms have you been trying to add him through?

    Do you have a 360 or a One?

    Also, if you don't , mind me asking, what troubleshooting steps if any have you tried already on your end?

    All this info would be a great help in pinpointing the problem and hopefully resolving the issue, so when you get a chance, fill us in a little more on the situation.

    Thanks!

    Removal of Friends

    Hello Vega,

    Sorry for the issue with your friend. You can try to have both of you remove each other, wait about 5 minutes than add each other back as friends. IS it possible also that he may just be going offline? If it persists try

    uninstall and reinstall the profile
    to the console.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Removing a friend from game sharing

    You can try contacting support to see if they came reset your limit, but the only way would be to set your own console as your Home console. 1-800-4my-xbox if you're in the US/Canada or
