Cannot Remove or Add Friends

Hello, hope someone can explain this…

I have duplicated friends in-game and I cannot remove the ones I added from in-game on earlier versions (I’m not following them on Xbox App). Now one friend have disappeared and I cannot add him anymore… From Xbox App we are following each other and in-game it says that we are friends already…

It’s Microsoft Store version, no developer mode.

Thank you in advance.

Following this topic . Why has the remove friends option been taken away ?


Most people on my FS friends list aren’t linked to Xbox friends and I cant remove some people I don’t want on my friend list. is there a solution?

Seems that no one is able to help us. :frowning:

The thing is that when I click on “View Xbox Profile”, nothing happens on that specific friends.

The problem is that the one I want to remove seems to not even have a Xbox profile. When I click “View Profile”, nothing happens, only on that person. :expressionless:

Would someone be so kind as to tell me how to delete a friend added in the sim?
I’m using the Steam version of MSFS. I have 3 friends and one doesn’t play anymore. So I try to delete it but to no avail, there is no option in the sim.

I find that quite strange, if not annoying.

I repeat specifically again. I added the buddy IN THE SIM, not via Steam. And i dont have the Xbox App or something.

same issue for me, haven’t found how to do it!

No, not in sim.
You do that from the Xbox app.

Did you read my post carefully? I specifically said I don’t use the Xbox app, and it’s never been installed. I I have the Steam version :wink:

Xbox App is something you can download from the Windows Store. Yes you purchased the game on steam, but you still use a microsoft account to actually play the game. You will need it to remove friends.

You could probably do it in a browser instead some xbox live website…

I even installed it extra times today, but I have 0 friends in the xbox app and the ones in the sim don’t show up

Steam still uses the Xbox app.

So. I have never installed the Xbox app on my PC except today to see if my 3 Simsfriends show up there and they won’t. And no, with the Steam version you don’t need the Xbox app, at least I don’t.
It works since almost 2 Years :wink:

My apologies.
I was under the impression steam used xbox app as well, which is why I tried to help with that link.
You should though, probably be able to remove them through the steam app.

Simple answer – be antisocial and don’t make Friends – then you wont have to delete them when you fall out !!


Yes, you cannot delete your Friends from within MSFS, but, far more powerfully —

You could do what some have correctly suggested, install the X-Box app, (if you have not already), and you can Manage your friend list there …

AndrewJ5664 selected — one click on “Remove Friend” and he would be history !!

Note: They are NOT MSFS Friends, they are X-Box Friends …

No problem, I’m glad someone is trying to help :wink:

I checked Steam as well and it only shows the friends I added through Steam and not in the sim. Actually I don’t have any friends in the Steam list that have MSFS2020.

Dont work for me.

Why should I have friends in the Xbox app if I have never installed them, or have never added anyone there. :wink:

MSFS2020 is the only MS game I have

What would happen, if you went in a group session with the Xbox app installed, would it then pick up your friends?

Well, that is strange. I added a few Friends in MSFS, and they show up when I run the X-Box app, and LOG In. as you can see from the above screen shot .

If you have steam, have you liked you steam account when in the X-boz app ??
