  1. Can Xbox game downloads and game pass be shared by siblings who share a series a console?


    Hi. My 2 sons (aged 7 and 10) are planning to buy an Xbox series a to share. They would each set up their own account on this. If they both want to play Minecraft would they both have to pay to download the game or could just one of them buy it? Also could they share a game pass or would they need one? Thanks.

    :)

    Can Xbox game downloads and game pass be shared by siblings who share a series a console?

    Hello!

    My name is Dérek, I'm an independent platform consultant and I'm grateful for the opportunity to help you.

    Ruth, as it will only be 1 console, they can split everything. Either a Gamepass subscription or the purchase of a game.

    just have everything in just 1 account, and put that account as the main one in the console.

    To put as main, just perform this process.

    Step 1. From the Xbox One main menu, access the panel by pressing the central button on the controller and go to "All settings";

    Step 2. In the menu, select "Personalization" and click on "My Home Xbox";

    Step 3. Each Xbox Live account can have an Xbox One console registered as a primary device. This means that, on that console, the user of that account will grant access to all their games and subscriptions to all other profiles, as well as playing their games offline. If your console is not yet registered as primary, click on "Set this Xbox as primary";

    Step 4. Note that doing this will remove your Xbox One from the primary device position of any other account. To confirm, press A;

    That way, they will have access to everything, sharing the subscription and the game.

    2 xbox 1 gold account, still can't set this up!

    Hello

    You can't share a single subscription simultaneously on both consoles.

    The person with the subscription can set one of the Xbox's as their home Xbox. Anyone else that uses that Xbox can share your subscription using their profile.

    What can be shared

    Share your Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription with anyone else who signs in to
    your console.

    Share games and downloadable content purchased from Microsoft Store with anyone else who signs in on
    your console. You can even share games downloaded as part of a subscription.

    Game Pass PC/children xbox accounts

    Hello, to share games you must be sharing your xbox console as home console. Everyone logged in on that console will share xbox live and any digital games download and some DLC when applable. Game pass ultimate can be shared also as long as the main account
    owner who purchased it has the console set to XBox home then it can be shared. Play anywhere games are games that can be played on console, pc and phone if avail. Start one place playing and put up where you left off on the available electronics. Only thing
    is PC and console are different when it comes to buying things. Pc game pass is not like XBox Game pass.

    What can’t be shared

    Account specific items may not be able to be shared. Some examples are:

    • In-game content purchased within the game with in-game currencies like Minecraft Skin Mashups or Halo REQ packs
    • In-game currency such as Minecraft Coins
    Certain pre-order bonuses and special edition content falls into these categories, so you may not be able to share those items as they can only be redeemed once from the account of the person who purchased
    the game."
