  1. Family sharing games


    I added my child to family account. Before he was playing Xbox 1 on my account. Games were purchased on my account.

    Now when he logs in, he cannot play the games. It is telling us the games have to be purchased-why?

    The Xbox is the home box.

    Thank you

    :)

    What exactly was Family Sharing

    "Family Sharing as it is" is unfortunately none existent, Family Sharing is a different service to what use to be the Family Gold plan and both are none existent at this stage, i do like that the 1 Gold plan covers an XB1 in its entirety for every profile
    on that console,

    me personally i would prefer the Family Sharing plan over the old Family Gold plan if it ever come down to choosing one or the other.

    Family Sharing was to share digital games among 10 people,

    Game Share

    Game sharing is meant for sharing with a family member. If you want to share your games with a family member, you will first need to login with your account to your family member's console and set that console as your home console. Then you can simply
    log out and anyone who use that console can play your games.

    Game share

    Do you mean game pass? Or you're game sharing with someone in your family? If its game share then try having your family member login with their account on the console and see if it shows up then.

    Post here if removing DRM & check ins brought you back!

    Family sharing was a joke. What good is it if you can't play the game at the same time. Family sharing = 1 console playing at a time. Not buy 1 game and have all 4 consoles in you house playing together. Are you going to wait 2 weeks for cousin Jim to beat
    Halo5 so he can share it with you? Not me I want to play it ONLINE on the day of LAUNCH with my FAMILY. Not possible w/ family sharing. People are so uneducated.
