Microsoft MakeCode

Chat function in Minecraft blocked by MS Account Settings

Hoping someone can help - I’ve just configured a new PC with two profiles for my Kids who are part of Family Group in Windows Live; I installed Makecode which connects through to Minecraft no problem, however after originally working (falling chickens!) when they now try to enter any other text into the chat bar I get the message: “You cannot chat with other players because of how your Microsoft Account is set up. This can be changed in your privacy and online safety settings on”
I’ve checked the setting in here and can’t see anything that would block chat - any ideas?


Hmmm… I haven’t seen that issue before. You might have more luck asking the Minecraft Education team:

Many thanks - will try there

Did you have any luck fixing this? I have a similar issue.
