    Playing Minecraft on PC, I don't have an option to invite cross platform players ( they are on Switch)

    Thank you for contact us! I'm Anderson, an Independent Consultant and a Microsoft user like you.

    good evening

    Cross-platform play is available for the Bedrock edition of Minecraft on PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and mobile devices. However, it is not available for the Java edition of Minecraft on PC. If you are playing the Bedrock edition and still don't have the option to invite cross-platform players, it may be because the feature is not yet available in your region or it might be a bug that needs to be fixed by the game developers.

    Another possible reason is that the person you are trying to invite is on a different version of the game and your version of the game is not compatible with their version.

    I believe it's most likely from the NAT or yours or your friend's.

    What is NAT:

    NAT is nothing more than a protocol that translates IP addresses and TCP ports from the local network to the Internet. That is, the package to be sent or received from your workstation on your local network, goes to the server where your ip is exchanged for the server ip and the replacement of the local network ip validates the sending of the package on the internet. When the package returns, the same thing happens, however, in reverse. Which ensures that the package reaches its destination.

    Why is NAT important?

    Your NAT type, combined with the NAT types of other players, determines whether you can successfully use multiplayer games or group chats. The following tables illustrate the differences between NAT types. And based on your NAT type, who you can join multiplayer games with and who you can listen in on a group chat.

    OPEN NAT

    You can chat with other people, as well as host and play multiplayer games with people who have any type of NAT on the network.

    MODERATE NAT

    You can chat and play multiplayer games with some people; however, you might not listen to or play with others, and you probably won't be chosen as a match host.

    STRICT NAT

    You can chat and play multiplayer games with people who have an OPEN NAT type. You cannot be chosen as the host of a match.

    NAT UNAVAILABLE

    You will not be able to use party chat or connect to multiplayer games in some titles on Xbox Live.

    these are the possible solutions:

    I'm playing Bedrock, so is the person on Switch. Are you saying cross play isn't available in Europe?

    play online games between xbox one and a PC

    Hello Maison,

    Thank you for posting here on the Xbox forums. This is possible between those devices. It depends on whether you are playing "Play anywhere" titles, or a cross platform game like Fortnite.

    Play anywhere titles can be played on both Xbox one, and PC. To play Microsoft/xbox games on PC, you would need a Gamertag. So, You would simply invite
    the other PC player to your game in the same way that you would invite another Xbox console player to a Xbox game. The player on PC would then use the game bar to accept/send invites.

    For cross platform games like fortnite, you would invite the other player in-game.

    Hope this helps!

    keyboard and mouse

    This is a cross platform issue, it works for fortnite and Minecraft because you could be playing against PC players, it doesn't work for other games that are not cross platform though. Imagine if you could use a keyboard and mouse in BO4 for instance,
    it wouldn't be fair!
