How to play with Friends Online
To play with friends in Among Us online, you will need to go to the online option and create a game via the Host option.

Tell your friends that code and have them go to the Online option and enter the code in the Private enter code area to join your game!
How to play with Friends Locally

Once you've got everyone on, one of you can go to the local option and then host the game.

The game really is best when you play with people you know because everyone will be trying to outwit each other and you will know each others personalities.

However, just try to not take the game too seriously, you don't want to lose someone you care about because they voted you out even if you weren't the impostor!
