I also get this issue but i do have something you can try! Close Terraria down, have your friend load their world then send you a "Dashboard" invite, accept the invite, this should then automatically launch Terraria, wait for the game to load, select your character you wish to use and hopefully you get into your friends game. I'm also on the Xbox One and this method works for us. Worth a shot either way.
I can still join my friends' lobby directly through Terraria's in-game menu. If you found yourself stuck at the resetting game tile screen, simply reboot your game and try again. This has been working out for me.
I've also found out that game invites do not work at all, as it kept crashing my game 100% of the time afterwards. (or for me at the very least...)
