My brother and I both own Moto G Android phones which are fully updated. We both own Minecraft .11.1 the latest version of Minecraft Pocket Edition. Neither of us can host games using our WiFi, but we can both see and play in Maps hosted by other Android devices, not Moto G devices. This tells us that the problem must be something to do with our particular phone's settings. Does anyone know of anything we can change that will allow us to host games from our phones using the normal easy method of Local game hosting via WiFi that the game designers intended?
We've tried to connect unsuccessfully, after clearing our App memory caches and we've tried restarting the App and turning the Allow Local Server Multiplayer switch on and off again under options. We've tried using other sources of WiFi, we've attempted to connect with Bluetooth.
Lots of people seem to have the have this issue with Moto G phones. However not a lot of information is available on how to fix it.
