How To Invite Or Play With Friends On Among Us | PC Steam | NEW 2020!

While Among Us is fun even on solo mode, it’s more exciting if you play it with your friends. The fact that the game supports cross platform makes it an even bigger hit. This is one of the contributing factors why it is now the most popular game, overtaking Fall Guys, and a host of other popular AAA games in mobile and PC platforms.

If you want to know how to invite or play with friends on Among Us, follow this guide.

Among Us has crossplay

Among Us runs on both PC and mobile (Android and iOS) so it makes sense for the developer to ensure that the game has crossplay feature. This means that players on mobile can play with others even if they are enjoying the game on a PC platform. 

If you have friends who only play Among Us on mobile, you can easily join them using your PC and vice versa.

Playing Among Us in cross platform mode is simple. All you have to do is select ONLINE and then click on Private.

Options to play with friends on Among Us

If it’s your first time to play Among Us, you’ll realize that there two multiplayer modes to play this game. One is Local and the other is Online.

What is Among Us Local Multiplayer?

Local multiplayer means that you can play with up to 4 friends as long as you are in the same wifi. This is great for a family setup.

What is Among Us Online Multiplayer?

Online Multiplayer, on the other hand, requires that you and your friends need to connect to the internet. This is a great option if you want to play with others outside your household.
