How to play cross-platform in Call of Duty: Warzone
Crossplay is enabled by default in Call of Duty: Warzone, but to play with your friends using it, you need to open the Social menu. This is shown in the top right of your Warzone lobby. It’ll list any friends you currently have that are playing on the same platform as you. To add friends via crossplay, choose the Add Friends button here.
You’ll now need to use the correct ID for your friend on that platform of choice. Select the correct option from the dropdown menu. For PC users, this is the Activision Battle.net account name. For consoles, get your friends to share their IDs on PlayStation or Xbox One, then search for them and send an invite. Once they’ve accepted, you’ll show up for each other on the main Social screen.
With your friends added, all you need to do to play cross-platform is select their name and choose Join Game to jump straight into the lobby they’re in. Make sure everyone is on the lobby screen so it’s easy to join each other. From there, all the host needs to do is get searching!
