Xbox friend online notification: app, not working

Here's how to configure your Xbox One to display popup notification each time one of your friends comes online (sign-in to Xbox Live on their console).

How to enable Xbox Live friends notifications?

In Windows 10

  • Open the Xbox app and navigate to Settings (cog icon) > General settings > Notifications.
  • Tick the Favorite online - Notify me when my favorite friends are online checkbox:

On Xbox console

Press the menu key of the controller.

Go to Settings > Preferences and then select the Sign-in & broadcasts menu.

You have a choice between three different settings:

  • No one - to disable sign-in & broadcasts notifications.
  • All friends - display notifications when any of your friends come online, which can be quite annoying when you have a lot of friends.
  • Favourites only - enable this setting for your favourite friends only (Go to your Friends page, select a friend, press the Menu button and then select the Add to favourites).
