  1. Can Multiple Accounts Be Set as Home Accounts on Xbox One?


    My roommates and I share an Xbox One, and more than one of us have a Gold account. We all want to set the one Xbox One as our home account so that any games we individually purchase, we would be able to play offline on any of the multiple accounts. If I
    set another Gold account as home for this Xbox One that already has a gold account set as Home, will it mess up any of the licenses for the games that the first account has purchased?

    :)

    Have i got lucky or is there an explanation?

    A single console can have multiple accounts set it as their home console. So yes, it is because your console is still set as their home console.

    Can Multiple Accounts Be Set as Home Accounts on Xbox One?

    Only one account can be set as the home account for your Xbox One. Therefore, if you set up your account as the home account and there is an existing home account already set, his account will no longer be the home account. Your account will now be the home
    account, and only your games can be accessed by everyone using the same console. The previous home account's games will no longer be accessible to anyone but him.

    Multiple people can set the same console as their home Xbox, but an account can only have one home Xbox.

    An account can only set 1 console as their Home at a time. Multiple accounts can set a console as their Home console, but I'm unsure if there is a limit.

    Home Xbox issue

    The Home Xbox is only a setting on the One, so it would not extend to the 360. The only way to "release" your account from being set as Home on someone else's console is to set your own console as your Home.

    Multiple accounts can set a console as their Home. So that shouldn't be an issue.

    Bought a Second hand Xbox One with games pre-installed

    Multiple accounts can set a console as their Home. Setting a console as your Home would only remove the Home setting for your own account from another console if you had another console set as your Home. It won't effect any other accounts on the console.
