The crossplay functionality that Minecraft: Bedrock Edition shares with other editions on all modern platforms is one of its greatest selling points. To access your friend's Minecraft world on another platform, you will need to both connect your Xbox accounts through the Minecraft RemoteConnect site. Here's how to access your account from other platforms if you have problems.
When you sign in to Minecraft on a new device, and you see Sign in to Microsoft Account at the bottom of the page, you will need press that button to receive a code which you can enter at RemoteConnect. You can sign in to the game again if you have signed in on this platform before. The process may take a while if you're on Nintendo Switch. Crossplay is only available for the Bedrock Edition. You will need to download the Bedrock Edition for the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4 Editions. This is because you already have Minecraft.
You may be asked to sign into the account using the browser that you used to enter the code. You can access another account if you don't have one already signed in. Make sure to switch to the account via the browser.
If the game does not connect to your account after you've entered the code multiple times, it is possible to restart your internet. Your internet connection can cause problems between your game console and its servers. After 30 seconds, unplug the router and plug it back in.
If you are still having trouble logging in, the last thing to do is to uninstall it and reinstall. It will cause problems when you try to connect online if your game has corrupted files.
