    How to designate an Xbox One console as your home Xbox

    The first time you sign in to an Xbox One and save your password, that console becomes your home Xbox. The console designated as your home Xbox is where you can share games and some content with others who sign in (with their own account) to that console
    with you.

    Never share your password or account sign in info.

    Home Xbox switches are limited to five per year.

    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.

    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.

    Play offline

    On your home Xbox, you can play downloaded games while traveling, or in the event of a network or service outage. You'll need to ensure that your console is designated as your home Xbox before you go offline. For more info, see Using
    Xbox One offline
    .

    If you have more than one Xbox One console, or if you sign in on multiple consoles, we recommend you designate the most frequently used console as your home Xbox.

    Note You can have only one home Xbox at a time. You can share purchased games and Gold with others only on your home Xbox. You get 5 switches per year. Customer support cannot offer additional switches.

    Designate an Xbox One console as your home Xbox

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select System > Settings > Personalization, and then select My home Xbox.
    3. Do either of the following:
      • Select Make this my home Xbox to designate the console as your home Xbox.
      • Select Remove this as my home Xbox to remove the designation.
    When you change home consoles, all device licenses for digital content will move to your new home Xbox. These device licenses will no longer be available on your previous home Xbox. In other words, when you switch your home Xbox, access to your content comes
    with you to your new home Xbox, and anyone signed in can enjoy it. Your previous home Xbox will still give your friends and family access to your stuff when you’re signed in to it.

    Can I change my home Xbox console to a different console?

    You can change which console is your home Xbox up to five times during a one-year period. This period works on a rolling basis, starting the moment you switch your home Xbox for the first time. If you reach your limit of home console switches for the year,
    you’ll get a message letting you know the next available date you can change it.

    Note Customer support cannot offer additional switches. If your console shows you’ve made five home Xbox switches for the year and you need assistance, select Help when you see the message, Can’t make this your home
    Xbox
    . You may be eligible to receive an exception.

    You can also get help with your home Xbox in Xbox Assist. Press the Xbox button to open the guide, select System > Xbox Assist, choose My Xbox Assist > Search, and then
    enter My Home Xbox.

    You cannot share across consoles. Game sharing/Gold sharing is meant for sharing games on one console.

    You will need two subscriptions. You may also have both profiles signed in on the console that’s designated as ‘Home’, this way, both parties can access the same games.

    However, if someone wants to play on the other console and signs out of the one with gold sharing, they will no longer have access to the benefits of Gold sharing and would require a separate XBL subscription to play.

    Hello Irrp65,

    We thank you for bringing this inquiry to our forums community, and understand that this concerns how to game share Xbox Live and digital content with other accounts across multiple consoles.

    Our suggestion here, please attempt following all information found within our
    how to designate an Xbox One console as your home Xbox support article as the article describes the process for sharing and where content
    can be shared. There is a limit, only one Xbox One console can be designated as the home Xbox with one account, meaning the account that is set cannot be set somewhere else as it will remove the setting from the previous console.

    Read through the article, and then let us know if the information was helpful.

    Best wishes!

    Please don't bump old threads. You would need to set your console as your Home console in order to remove it from any other consoles.

    No, as far as I've seen, anything you purchase will automatically download to his console.

    Also, from what I've heard from others, all of your purchases will possibly show up in the games and apps section on the far right hand side where it shows all the games that are available in your collection but aren't currently installed.

    I'm not 100% sure on any of this stuff, as I haven't needed to use it, but it is my basic understanding of how it works based upon what I've heard from others.
