  1. Can I gift a digital game that I purchased through my account but was meant to be installed...


    I bought a game, "minecraft", and I wanted to install it on my son's xbox account, but I was logged into my own account when I bought it and now it seems that I can't give it away once bought, instead the xbox app gives me the option to buy it again as a gift. The issue is that I don't want to play it and I don't want it on my own account. Is there any solution? Thanks

    :)

    Can I gift a digital game that I purchased through my account but was meant to be installed on my child's account?

    Xbox play anywhere HELP!

    Sorry, PlayAnywhere only works with digital purchases. Digital purchases are tied to a specific account which was used to buy it in the first place, hence you can't gift them like physical games. If you meant game sharing a digital purchase over multiple
    accounts on a single family console, then I am afraid it would not be PlayAnywhere for accounts other than the one which was used to purchase the game digitally. Hope this helps.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. You can basically gift a game that your child wants. For example, he wants a certain game, instead of purchasing it directly on their account. You can purchase it as a gift on your account and it gets sent to your child account.

    Send money from an account to another.

    Hey there DeividBarrientos,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the forums, unfortunately transferring money from account to account is not possible. If there is something that you are attempting to purchase you can always choose to purchase items as a gift so that you can send it
    to the other users account.


    I hope this helps.
