    But that's the point, what you are asking for would require setting up a server (as far as I know). You have two options.

    1) If you are together with your friends irl, use LAN worlds.

    2) If you aren't, use Realms.

    You are basically asking for free Realms here. Not going to happen. It costs money to run servers.

    What I am saying with this is a server that only runs when the actual world is open minecraft realms cost money because minecraft runs those servers what I’m asking is to have a free option where by opening up one of these worlds the person on it will run the server from their computer meaning it doesn’t cost money because the server won’t be up 24/7 and it would be manageable by anyone because the only thing you have to manage is being on the world none of that other technical stuff basically I don’t want to learn how to program and run a server just to play with friends I would just rather it to allow me to play on a temporarily online world with none of that consol command stuff if that makes sense

    Or, a seperate button in the pause menu or title screen that says Friends and after you click on it, you can see/add friends. It could show each player you've "friended" each in separate bars and it would show their name, head, and if they're connected to internet, what server their on or if they're on a solo world. Clicking on a name would give the options "Unfriend" "Join Server" "Invite to Server/World" "Chat" "Mute/Block" "Download Skin". If they aren't using the same version, clicking on a name will just show "Playing Version/Snapshot:_______". If someone gets a message when they're in-game, the message would appear in the chat. Invites would appear like a new recipe or an advancement. Friends could be added by Minecraft username or by the e-mail used for the Minecraft account.

    They could easily implement this by adding Xbox Live like in bedrock.

    This is the same functionality available on Bedrock Edition. I really want to see Java gain this ability. The singleplayer game runs an internal server already. This would just make it easier to connect your friends for a quick session without fussing with IP addresses.

    me and a bunch of people played on a youtubers server and put in a lot of hours, 
    however the server was closed , but someone created a realm, and invited friends
    we had made to start again :D Only a few of us saw the invite, however and it is annoying
    not being able to invite other friends, or send them a friend request and let them know where we all are now :'(
    It is very sad, and stressful! :p
