Have you been loving playing Roblox on your Xbox but want to figure out how to team up with friends? With over 200 million monthly active users, Roblox is one of the largest multiplayer gaming platforms, especially popular with kids and teens.

The wide range of user-generated games offers endless variety – you can go from playing obby courses one minute to running your own pizzeria the next. Roblox is available across pretty much every platform, including Xbox consoles.

While it‘s easy to add friends through the mobile and PC versions of Roblox, the Xbox app doesn‘t actually have a friends menu. So how can you add and play with friends on Xbox? Don‘t worry, you‘ve come to the right place!

In this guide, I‘ll walk you through exactly how to search for friends, send requests, and join games on Xbox. We‘ll also cover some tips for troubleshooting any issues with cross-platform play.

By the end, you‘ll be able to team up with all your buddies in Roblox on Xbox!

Overview: How to Add Roblox Friends on the Xbox App

Here‘s a quick rundown of the steps to become friends and play together:

  • Use a web browser – You‘ll need to access the Roblox website through Microsoft Edge on Xbox or your phone to search for friends and manage requests.

  • Send friend request – Look up your friend‘s profile, then select "Add Friend" to send a request.

  • Accept request – Your friend will need to accept the request on the Roblox website before they show up in your friends list.

  • Join game – Once connected as friends, open Roblox on Xbox and select "Join Game" on your friend‘s profile or through the Xbox friends list.

Seems simple enough, right? Now let‘s dive into the step-by-step instructions.

Step 1: Send a Roblox Friend Request Through the Website

Since the Xbox app doesn‘t have friend management built-in, you‘ll need to use a web browser to send requests. You have two options:

Use Microsoft Edge on your Xbox – Open the Edge app from your games and apps. Go to and sign in.

Use a mobile browser – The small text can make this harder on Xbox. I recommend using the Chrome or Safari browser on your phone if possible.

Once you‘ve logged into, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the "Home" icon in the top left and select "People" from the left menu.

  2. Type your friend‘s Roblox username into the search bar at the top.

  3. Click on their avatar icon to open their profile.

  4. Select the blue "Add Friend" button in the top right corner to send the request.

Roblox has experienced massive growth over the past couple years, reaching 215 million monthly active users as of February 2022. With so many potential friends, searching by username is a quick way to find people you know.

Once you send the request, your friend will get a notification prompting them to accept or decline.

Step 2: Accept the Roblox Friend Request Through the Website

After you‘ve sent a friend request, your friend needs to formally accept it before they‘ll show up in your friends list on Xbox.

Have them follow these steps:

  1. Open the Roblox website in a browser and log in to their account.

  2. Click on the hamburger menu icon in the top left corner and select "Friends."

  3. Go to the "Requests" tab on the Friends page. They should see your request there.

  4. Click the black "Accept" button below your avatar to confirm the request.

Join Your Roblox Friend‘s Game on Xbox

Here are the two ways you can join your friend‘s game session after connecting as Roblox friends:

Through their profile:

  1. Open Roblox on your Xbox.

  2. Go to the Friends tab on the left sidebar.

  3. Select your friend‘s profile picture.

  4. Choose "Join Game" at the top of the screen.

Through the Xbox friends list:

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the overlay.

  2. Go to the People tab.

  3. Select your friend‘s gamertag.

  4. Choose "Join game."

Either way, Roblox will automatically launch and add you into the same game session as your friend!

Tips for Smoothly Adding Friends on Roblox Xbox

Adding friends through the website isn‘t difficult, but here are some tips to avoid issues:

  • Enable cross-platform play in your account settings – You need this on to play with friends on PC/mobile.

  • Check your privacy settings allow friends to join games before inviting them.

  • Restart the Roblox app if you can‘t join a friend to fix bugs.

  • Wait a few days if you get errors joining friends – it‘s often a temporary server problem.

  • Inform your friend they need to accept requests through the website, not the Xbox app.

  • If your friend already linked their Xbox Live account, you automatically become Roblox friends.

Following these steps, you‘ll be enjoying all of Roblox with friends in no time! Let me know in the comments if you have any other questions.
