  1. Is it possible to share games on PC with another Microsoft account?


    A close friend of mine has Forza Horizon 4, and offered me to play it. I saw that Microsoft allows to add other e-mail to the family, but I'm not sure if it games can be shared, because he added my e-mail to his "family"
    in his Microsoft account but I can't play it thorugh the Microsoft Store.

    Then I found an older post in this forum were a moderator says that it's not possible to share, but if he logs in with his account on my PC, then I can download it, hence the first phrase on How to associate devices with
    the Movies & TV app in Windows 10 "You can download purchased content to up to five devices and redownload the content as many times as you like." But does it work with games?

    :)

    Gamedata

    Xbox Live sharing is for Xbox console only. Even though it is possible to share Xbox live and games on the console (I understand you are on PC) you can not share saved game data. It is not possible to transfer digital data from one account to another on
    either platform.

    SUBSCRIPTION! Xbox(beta)

    Hello. a possible reason is the lower presence of games in the microsoft store pc, so it is more difficult to bequeave agreements with the distributor( are less). another possible reason is that a service that is starting on pc and the third the cost of
    subscription on pc is half that of xbox

    you cant share games from one account to another that are downloads, account stuff such as games arent ment to be stored on pc because of modding and file sharing.
