How to play GTA Online with friends
- Start a game in Single Player Mode
- Pause and go to Play Online
- Select Invite Only Session
To play Grand Theft Auto Online with friends, make sure you start your GTA Online in the right way. We have a separate guide for avoiding loading screens, but we’ll explain the best way to play with your friends. Sometimes when you are new to the game you and your team can keep getting split up and it’s frustrating. This will hopefully solve your issue.
First, start an invite session and invite all your friends to it. You can do this by starting the game in single-player mode. Next, hit escape if you’re on PC or pause and go to Play Online, then select Invite Only Session.
Some people report that if you’re online you can go to Creator, and when Creator loads you can go to Online, Play GTA Online, and start an invite-only session from there to save minutes in loading screens.
You can also invite players to missions on the mission lobby screen. The other player will need to accept the invite from his in-game mobile phone. Make sure to start the game as a lobby host by going to Lamar on the map, and temporarily set matchmaking as closed. Invite your friends, and then you can open it up if you want others to join.
How to play jobs with friends in GTA Online
To play specific jobs, head to the section under the start menu by going to start, online, jobs, Rockstar created, and picking a job. Invite your friends to join the job and start when you’re ready.
