Can't invite partner to casual game

On my Android Galaxy tablet, I often find that I cannot invite a friend when selecting "I have a partner, take us to a table" in the casual section. I can see that my partner is online, but BBO says that the partner is not online. However, if my partner invites me, we can get to a table.

I've tried logging off then back on; quitting BBO then restarting BBO; quitting BBO then doing a 'close all applications' on the tablet. Nothing seems to work.

This happens about 90% of the time I try to play with a partner on my tablet.

This issue does NOT occur on my Windows 10 laptop.

I am having a similar problem, but I am using Firefox on a Windows 10 laptop and my partner is using Safari on a MAC. We are both looged on, but I cannot invite him - BBO claims he is not logged on - but he can invite me. Very frustrating as he is a novice at BBO and I am fairly experienced (both at BBO and software in general).

There is either a BBO bug or some setting which is prevent me inviting the Safari/Apple Mac user.

When you partner signs into BBO, have them click on the CASUAL tab.
