Whether you’ve found the Dragon Egg or not, that is, the rarest item in Minecraft, you certainly can’t deny the game’s incredible popularity. Surely not everything that is popular is also of good quality, but there is an important reason behind the notoriety of Minecraft: it gives players the opportunity to create a world where the only limit is their own imagination.
A year ago our post was talking about some Minecraft Aka.ms/remoteconnect errors and how to fix them. This time, we will talk about how to deal with the setup process for remote connection and cross-play. You can find aka.ms/remoteconnect for Minecraft in your official website. For those who don’t know, this is a tool that allows users to connect multiple devices to a single Microsoft account in order to access all available features. They can even compete with each other in the same way.
Set up Remoteconnect for PlayStation 4
First of all, you need to log in to your account using the web link https://www.aka.ms/remoteconnect. You may need to register an account if necessary by accessing the official Microsoft website.
The next phase is to use your laptop or phone and follow these simple steps:
- Buy and download Minecraft for your PS4 from PlayStation Store
- Launch the game and sign in to your Microsoft account via https://www.aka.ms/remoteconnect
- Access the login link that will appear in a new window
- Enter the Minecraft code that also appeared in the new window before the time expires
- Click Next”
- That is all. Congratulations!
Set up Minecraft Crossplay for PlayStation 4
You can set up the Minecraft crossplay feature only after setting up the remote connection. Here’s how to proceed with the crossplay feature on PS4:
- Press ‘play’ from the main menu
- Select ‘Create new world’ from ‘Worlds’
- Check if the multiplayer option is enabled
- Select ‘Create’ and you can start building your world
Set up Remoteconnect for Xbox consoles
Now that you’ve set up your Xbox Live, it means you already have a Microsoft account. This is what you need to get started:
- Find ‘Minecraft’ by accessing the Microsoft Store from an Xbox console (it doesn’t matter if you’re using Xbox 350, One or Series X)
- Buy and download Minecraft
- Select the login bar from the bottom left and click ‘A’ after you have started the game
- Sign in with your Xbox profile and you’re good to go!
Configure Minecraft Crossplay for Engine Xbox
- Visit the Microsoft Store using your Xbox console
- Download Minecraft
- Access ‘Friends’ after starting the game
- Search for your friends by adding their Gamertag in the ‘Cross-Platform Friend Search’ area
Set up Remoteconnect on Nintendo Switch
You’ll need to use https://www.aka.ms/remoteconnect, similar to how you would set up for PlayStation 4 consoles. Here’s what to do next:
- Download Minecraft from the Switch Digital Store
- Launch the game and sign in to your Microsoft account from https://www.aka.ms/remoteconnect sign-in-bar
- A new window will open with a login link and a Minecraft code will also be displayed
- Use a device other than your Nintendo Switch console to access the link
- Enter the code that was shown to you before the time expires
- The login will be possible automatically from your Nintendo Switch, and you’re done.
Set up Minecraft Crossplay on Nintendo Switch
The steps to configure Minecraft Crossplay on Nintendo Switch are practically the same as in the case of PS4 that you can find above.
Minecraft seems like a great legacy that won’t be shelved anytime soon. We are talking about the best-selling game of all time. Back in July, we shared news about a SpongeBob SquarePants crossover.
