    Game pass and child account


    I recently upgraded my xbox live to game pass. Everything works fine on my profile. My son's profile is more locked down then mine but he is allowed to go online with his games and is allowed to play games rated up to age 13. I set up the account on the
    xbox to ask me for permission before he downloads anything.

    Yesterday he tried to download a game rated E from game pass. Instead of notifying that I needed to approve the download, it told him he needed to buy a game pass subscription. This was after he was playing online with a friend.

    Why is it working for my profile but not his?

    :)

    Some clarification

    The Xbox has been set as the home device from the beginning and my son's account is listed under mine as a child in the family.

    The person owning the Game Pass subscription will have to download the games and the games themselves will be shared.

    Has to be your account that downloads any gamepass game, because although other profiles can share from your account if they download something it links back to their account. Tha's why the system is asking them to purchase a subscription.

    I have the xbox set as the home device and he is set as a child within my family.

    I have only tried through the game pass menu.

    I will have to try the "see in Microsoft store" method tonight when I get home. I assume any game that is available to download through the game pass menu is free to download for me through the microsoft store.

    It sounds like you need to set the console to your home console, so other profiles can share your subscriptions and games on the console. Here's the Link shows how to do that.
