Are you wondering why your Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) friends list is not showing? Have you lost all your friends from PUBGM? Then you are not alone who’s facing this problem. Every player has lost their friends from PUBGM when they transferred their data to BGMI. Following the ban on PUBGM by the Indian government, BGMI swiftly took its place. The developers gave players the option to transfer their data from PUBGM to BGMI. This helped them a lot since they didn’t lose any progress or level. But immediately, players noticed that their friend list is empty even after transferring the data. So in this article, we will tell you why your friend list is not showing in BGMI and if there is a fix for that.
When PUBGM got banned by Indian Government alongside other Chinese apps, players were very disheartened to lose one of the most popular battle royale games. But Krafton was determined to bring the battle royale back to its Indian player base. And so, they made Battlegrounds Mobile India or BGMI for short. It is a version of PUBG Mobile, exclusively for players in India. Players were thrilled to get their favorite battle royale game back. PUBG mobile had gained popularity really quickly in India and hence Krafton did not want to lose such a huge player base. BGMI was a result of players requesting the company to bring the game back and Krafton listening to its Indian fans. But there was a problem. Players who transferred their data from PUBGM to BGMI were unable to see their friends. So, in this article, we will tell you what is causing that problem and if there is a fix for it.
Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) friends list not showing: Fixes & Workarounds
Before we tell you if there is a fix for this problem or not, we would like you to know why this problem might be occurring. When PUBGM got banned by the government for security issues, Krafton decided to introduce BGMI as a replacement. Krafton even announced that players can transfer their PUBGM (Global) data to BGMI so that they don’t lose any progress. But after installing the game and transferring the data, players noticed that their friend list was empty.
Is there a fix or workaround?
Unfortunately for the players, there is no fix for this problem. With the release of BGMI, Krafton has made India a separate region. Now Indian players have been separated from the ASIA region and do not compete with them. The only way to get your friends back is to ask for their BGMI ID and add them to your friend list manually all over again. You can also play BGMI with PUBGM Global version players.
We hope this article was able to help you identify the issue and give you an answer. So far, there is no fix for Battlegrounds Mobile India friends list not showing a problem.
