I've just discovered and set the kids up with their own child accounts, so we can set time limits on the Xbox. 


They have been using my account for the last year, and now they don't seem to have access to their saved minecraft worlds... is there anyway for them to access their minecraft worlds that are still under my account?

not sure, but you might be able to do that if you also log in and make like you're having a multiplayer build/game (splitscreen, though).




i'll tell you something worse (for me, anyway), in the bedrock/better together version, add-on purchases are now via minecraft marketplace, i.e. per user. in other words, skins, mash-ups, etc. purchased on your account are not available on your kids accounts.


how that is "better together", i cannot fathom. my daughter loves the aquatic update, though.

The minecraft/xbox account merger thing is a cluster. Switching from a local account on ipad to xbox account my son lost all of his worlds in both directions. And when I try to add minecraft coins to his account they don't show up, the iPad is set up under my apple id.


I'll try and sort it out at some stage, just I lost the will to spend hours on support chats trying to fix it.......
