    Adding a gamertag to the Xbox app


    I am getting my youngest son an xbox for Christmas and I was curious with the app, can I add his gamertag so I can view both his and his brother's account?

    I want to monitor both from the same app.

    Thanks

    :)

    You can only be logged into one account at a time.

    You can only log into one account at a time but you can have two accounts o the same devices but not at the same time.

    you can as well go to your console settings and manage via family settings add their accounts on there and manage what they are doing and can or can not do

    the application would show you what it plays and in any case the group in which it is

    In order to monitor your kids, you should add their accounts to your parent account in the Microsoft Family settings.

    Go to
    https://account.microsoft.com/family
    and sign in with your parent account. There add the two accounts of your kids (make sure that when you create the accounts for your kids, that you enter their proper birthdate, as this determines when the account becomes
    an adult account, that can't be restricted).

    There you get an overwiew of what the kids did and also set restrictions, like playing time limits per day or week, or restrict games to a certain age, (dis-)allow them to talk to internet strangers via Xbox Live etc.

    If you want to use the Xbox App, be aware that this is not a monitoring tool. The Xbox App is just a "social network" for gamers. You can add your kid's gamertag names as "Friends", and you can see what they are currently playing. If you look at your friend
    list, you would for example see "Kid1Gamertag is playing Minecraft" under their name. But you will not actually see their game screen.
