Add your friends through their UID and make sure you’re on the same server. Go to the Co-op Mode and invite your friends into your world or join theirs!

Note: You must be at least Adventure Rank 16 to enable Co-op Mode.

What this means is that all your progress on one platform will be automatically synced with other platforms you decide to play Genshin on. Simply sign in to your miHoYo account and connect it to any device of your choice. Doing so integrates your miHoYo cloud saves with the device, allowing you to access your progress from anywhere, and on any device in the world.
