    Game Share Problem

    His account is on my Xbox. My account is on his Xbox. My Xbox is set as his home Xbox and his Xbox is set as my home Xbox. He still has Gold as he's able to play online but for some reason I still can't.
    Just because hes online doesnt mean that his gold is still active that could mean that there is another profile on his console that has his console set as their home console and has a gold subscription.

    The best way to figure out is if you can sign into his account on your xbox and go into settings and under the account tab go to subscriptions it will tell you if his gold is still active or not.

    That means that there is not an account on your console that has gold and has your console set as its home console.

    Game sharing problem

    Hey there, Arive Shady!

    I'm sorry to see any issues downloading a game! I'm wondering if the purchase didn't go through properly. If your friend is relative to your location, are they able to log into their account and find out if they can download it themselves? Let me know how
    it goes. :)

    Game Sharing Problem

    Hey Grimkaos969,

    No problem. It was my pleasure. I'm glad we could clear things up.

    Apologies if that causes any inconveniences, but it's a common misconception due to most people who share licenses do so for the game sharing only and not the online access that is shared from the Gold subscription.

    Most of the time, both accounts that are sharing own the subscription at the point of setting up the Home Console and you may realize that you can still play online even after your subscription expires, and that leads people to believe they also get access
    to the free games and deals you get with gold, but that's only offered to the accounts that have an active Gold license to their account.

    Don't hesitate to post again in case you have any other questions and we'd be happy to help!
