    Game sharing isn’t working


    I have my friend’s account as my home xbox and i have been playing destiny 2 like that for a long time but suddenly yesterday it started saying i dont own the game and i need to sign in with the account that does and i tried restarting my xbox and tried
    to launch the game but it didnt work. So i tried game sharing with someone else but still it keeps giving me the same error.

    Can someone help me solve this problem pls?

    :)

    Hey there adikoolgamer,

    Sorry to hear you are running into this problem with the game sharing feature. We do currently have an active service alert regarding signing into accounts, it is possible that this is causing some issues with the gameshares, You can get notified when this
    issue has been resolved by going over to the
    Xbox Live Status Page
    .

    You can try to
    Physically Power Cycle your Xbox One
    then giving it another try to see if this will help. If the issue persists I would wait until the service alert has been removed so that we can properly troubleshoot.

    I hope this helps.

    Did you happen to switch home xbox's during this time?

    You are limited to 5 switches a year.

    first off, game sharing by using the Home Xbox feature is only meant to be used by people in the same household and using it with people who are not family is against Xbox/Microsoft's terms of use and can result in an enforcement action against the accounts
    involved.

    maybe your friend switched his home Xbox to game share with someone else (or to play his games offline)

    you'd have to ask him if that is the case.

    but it could be a glitch, so try a Power Cycle just to rule that out.

    hold the Xbox button on the front of the console for 10 seconds until the Xbox powers down then switch off the wall socket and pull the plug out of the wall socket. leave it for 10 minutes then plug it back in, switch it back on and turn on your Xbox. hopefully
    that will sort it out.

    but if your friend did switch his Home Xbox there is nothing anyone can do.

    Yea i did switch my home xbox. I made my other friend’s account my home xbox after trying to launch the game multiple times with the same account that i was using to play the game for past few months.

    If the account is still homed it's very possible if xbox live services are having issues it can affect use of game shared games
