How to Turn Cross-Play On and Off in FIFA 22

Cross-platform play allows players from different platforms to engage in soccer matches in FIFA 22 without any restrictions. Follow these steps if you want to enable this feature on your PS5 or Xbox Series X|S:

  1. Go to the main menu.
  2. Press R2 on PS5 or RT on Xbox.
  3. Go to "Friends" tab.
  4. Press the triangle button on PS5 or the Y button on Xbox.
  5. Type in your friend's PSN or Xbox Live Gamertag.
  6. Highlight your friend's tag in the list after it was added.
  7. Press the square button on PS5 or the X button on Xbox.

Usually, cross-play is automatically enabled by default. The same method can be used if you want to disable cross-play with a specific user by simply choosing the "Disable Cross-Play" option.
