[Cross Platform] Can't see Switch & Steam Text messages

Postby Domus on Tue Nov 14, 2017 7:05 pm

Hi I own both versions (Switch and PC) and i wanna say its still awesome. I went on create a private server for my steam friends to join and it worked seamlessly! We had loads of fun until i typed 'hi' and no one responded. All i see was 'I got it!', 'Take the Shot!', 'Wow!'. My friends were also typing and asked me to see if i could see their text and i can't see it too. They also couldn't see the awesome Mario or Luigi ''battle'' cars, all they see was Octane.

Do any of you switch/steam/xbox players have this problem?

This is by design. Only Steam can see Steam chat and Switch see Switch chat. Quick chat is the only way to communicate crossplatform.

Also, the Switch vehicles belong to Nintendo. So they only show on that platform.

I heard they will be changing that soon so you can see the exclusive cars? Rumor from one of my friends and they don't remember where they heard it lol

There are no plans to allow other platforms to see the exclusive cars

How about text messages? Will it be visible between different platforms in the future update?
