    Game Pass Ultimate sharing - Home setting not working


    Hi all

    In my household we have two XBox - mine in the lounge (let's call this Xbox 1) and my son's in his room (Xbox 2).

    I have Game Pass Ultimate subscription under my account.

    We just had to return my sons Xbox to Microsoft for a repair, and while it seems fine now the issue is a change of behaviour that I can't figure out.

    Previously he was able to log in to his account, and play Fortnite (pretty much the only game he plays!) without me having to log in or do anything. Now, even though I do have an account on his Xbox and have set it as the Home console, it prompts him to
    subscribe to Xbox Live or Gold. The only way around this is for me to log on, open Fortnite and log in, then switch to his account so he can play. I suspect if I then signed in on Xbox 1 it may kick him out.

    At this point I'm not sure if this is an issue with the way the Home setting works, or Game pass sharing, or Fortnite itself. Any suggestions? I'm not an Xbox guru at all and am completely baffled by all this.

    :)

    We have 4 four consoles.

    One for each member of the house. The way I set it up was that my wife and myself share Game Pass Ultimate with the gameshare feature(Set console as home Xbox)

    I also did the same with the kids. They share their own Game Pass Ultimate subscription

    Since you can only share with one additional console, this is the only way to do it.

    Question about Game Pass Ultimate

    Well, her XBox isn't my home XBox, it would be hers. I know I can share my game library to her but wasn't sure if I can share the benefits of Game Pass Ultimate to her or she needs her own subscription.
    In order to share your Game Pass Ultimate with her, you'll have to set her console as you home and then you can sign out from there.

    About the games i own and downloaded to my xbox

    One way this would have worked is if you have the Game pass Ultimate or game pass basic subscription and those games were a part of one of these subscriptions services and then they took those games away from the subscription services.

    The only other way that this would have worked is if someone that did own the game digitally has your Xbox console set as that accounts home console and you were game sharing with that person and then they are no longer game sharing with you.

    Hi 1leglacey,

    Thanks for your post. I understand you are attempting to share Game Pass Ultimate using the Home Xbox feature. Sharing Game Pass is not possible under this feature, the only way to play Game Pass games under home Xbox association is to download the games
    on the profile with the subscription beforehand and then play them on the other profiles after.

    For more information on this, check out:

    I hope this helps.
