We might not all be able to meet up in person right now, but we can still group up online using our Xbox Series X and Series S consoles.

If you want to find out how to add friends and accept requests on your new hardware check out our guide!

And if you want something to play with you new buddies, check out our Xbox Series X game guide here!

How To Make Friends on Series X

Add Friends

So you want to add the people you’ve met to your friend’s list?

To do this you’ll want to hem a friend request.

Access the menu by pressing the Xbox button (the Xbox symbol), then under Profile & System select Choose a profile.

Sign in to your account by choosing your Gamertag.

Open the guide again using the Xbox button and under People choose to Find someone.

Search for their Gamertag by typing it in, be sure to spell it right!

Select Add Friend to add them to your friend’s list, choosing either Friend or Favourite to choose what info you want to share with them.

If they are someone you know IRL, you can choose to Share my real name to help them recognise you.

Hit submit and the request will be sent! 

Accept Friend Requests

If you instead want to add friends that have sent you requests, sign in the same way as above.

Access the menu by pressing the Xbox button (the Xbox symbol), then under Profile & System select Choose a profile and sign in to your Gamertag.

Next head over to your Notifications.

This can found by using the Xbox button again and selecting the bell icon.

Here you can see people that have added you to their friend list and can then add them to yours using the method above!

We hope that all helps!
