How to Enable Cross-Play in Diablo IV

Diablo IV allows players between platforms to tackle hordes of demons together through cross-play. Enabling cross-play in Diablo IV is extremely easy and will allow you to play with friends regardless of where they are once enabled. In order to enable this option, you will need to go to the “Game” menu. From there, navigate to “Social.” You can select “Cross-Network Play,” which allows you to enable cross-play. The “Cross-Network Communication” option is less about being able to play with one another, but more about being able to communicate. Once this is active, you can text chat and voice chat with players on other platforms.

The “Social” menu also offers other options, outside of allowing players to enable cross-play in Diablo IV. This is where you can also manage alerts and chat settings, including opacity, colors, and even turning on your “Quick Join.”

Quick Join will allow for friends to jump into your party without needing you to accept them. This removes a couple of menus when people are trying to jump into your game, and probably worth turning off unless if you’re playing Diablo IV with a dedicated group of friends.

Please keep in mind that you will need to first reach Kyovashad in order to see other players, let alone play with them. Thankfully, the tutorial area is relatively short, and after that you can jump into co-op whenever you want.

Diablo IV is available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
