I logged in for Realms Alpha but the Realms icon is not appearing. Why?

  • Do you have access to the Realms Alpha? This is also tricky to answer as Alpha software is typically not widely available and out of the scope of the site. Dec 24 '13 at 11:38

    @MichaelFrank If you can buy access to it, it is not out of scope for the site.

  • @Arperum fair enough. Where can you buy access? I'd like to check it out. :D Dec 24 '13 at 19:25

You must have access to Realms Alpha to have the button enabled. If you don't have it, the button will simply disappear. To get it, ask someone with a Realm to invite you to theirs and then you can join their Realm via the button which will only appear if you have access to Realms Alpha.

Source: I tried logging in with my other account without Realms and the button wasn't there.
