About Xbox 0x89234013 Error
Xbox is a video gaming brand created by Microsoft. It has a party chat feature through which users can interact with each other inside and outside of their favorite game sessions. That’s one of the reasons that the pre-installed Xbox app exists on your Windows PC.
However, some users complain that they got an error message which contains the following text: your network settings are blocking party chat 0x89234013. Once it happened, they were automatically disconnected from the party chat and it wouldn’t allow them to connect back to the party chat.
Let’s see an example:
I just got my computer about 4 days ago. When I first used it, I could use the Xbox app and talk to my friends who were on the Xbox One, but the past couple days for whatever reason it won't let me talk or stream games through my console. I can be in a party by myself, but if I join anyone or they join me I get error code 0x89234013 and it tells me communication is blocked. answers.microsoft.com
