How can we get past this annoying and irritating bug to enjoy playing games with friends? No need to worry, in this article we are going to find the solution.
Failed to invite the name provided in Minecraft Realms
The vast majority of PC gamers reported that the problem is found in the Java edition of Minecraft on Windows 10 and 11 computers. The solutions we will present below will help you quickly forget about this problem so that you can enjoy the game without problems.
Update Minecraft on PC
The first thing we have to test when we are dealing with this problem is that we have the latest version of the game installed. In Windows 11 we will do it from the Microsoft Store. We open the store and click on Library that is in the lower left part of the window and then we will click on Get updates.
In the case of Windows 10, we will open the Microsoft Store, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and choose Downloads and updates, then go to Get updates and all the applications that we have installed on the computer should be updated.
For Minecraft Java for PC, we will have to start the game launcher. Automatically, we should see what version we have available. Otherwise, we will press the arrow to the right of the play button and choose Last Launch.
Set up multiplayer mode to be able to invite friends in minecraft
To avoid this error we will have to have the account configured to allow multiplayer mode. To configure our account we will have to log in on the following page: https://account.xbox.com/settings and we will have to make sure that the following options are set to Allow.
- You can play with people outside of Xbox Live.
- It is possible to create and join clubs.
- You can join multiplayer games.
- We can add friends.
Enable and disable full screen mode
Although it may not seem like it, this can cause an inconvenience. What kind of problem? If we were invited to a Realms server and the invite icon is displayed on the Realms button in the main menu, we may not be able to see it. So in this case we would have to press the F11 key on the keyboard twice.
When we are facing the Failed to invite the provided name error in Minecraft Realms, it is possible that the game launcher has some temporary problem. In this case, the best thing to do is to restart the game launcher and check if the problem has been fixed the next time we start it.
Verify that we have entered the correct name
If we know, are you sure you entered the correct name! But on many occasions we are sure and it turns out that an “O” is actually a “0” and we do not realize it. So basically we recommend verifying that the name is correct. If we have copied this Nick, we recommend pasting it into a Notepad to see that it does not have blank spaces at the end.
reinstall minecraft to invite friends
We must not rule out the possibility that the game files are corrupted. Perhaps the installation of the game did not complete correctly or an update caused some kind of inconvenience. What we recommend is to completely uninstall the game and re-download it to the device to check if the issue persists.
