    Minecraft Share game or gift to child


    Hi, I have xbox one, I have set up two child account for it.

    I would like the two children to be able to play Minecraft on the xbox console together

    Is it better to buy Minecraft myself as the adult, is it poss to share the game with the child accounts

    Or is it better to buy Minecraft as a gift for one of the child accounts ans still retain parental controls

    I have seen posts that its possible to share games with others on the same console, does this work for child accounts too as 1) adult to child, 2) child to child, or even 3) child to adult!

    I have set up xbox family

    I do not have game pass

    I have bought 3m xbox live

    Thanks for any time you can spare to assist, the xbox help only seems to cover standard questions and not this one!

    :)

    Followed the Redeem Gift Card Instructions for Family account, credits were still added to Parent account vs. children's.

    If the gift card was going to be used for games, you could "gift" whatever game to your child's account.

    Can we have multiple user accounts on our Xbox?

    Yes you can make sure the Xbox is set as the home Xbox of the primary account that has Xbox Live gold and all other users can get the same benefits.

    I suggest you look into creating child accounts for them.

    Xbox child accounts

    Home Xbox

    Home Xbox switches are limited to five per year.

    What can be shared

    Share your Xbox Live Gold subscription with anyone else who signs in to your console.

    Share games and downloadable content purchased from Microsoft Store with anyone else who signs in on your console. You can even share games downloaded as part of a subscription.

    What can’t be shared

    Account specific items may not be able to be shared. Some examples are:

    • In-game content purchased within the game with in-game currencies like Minecraft Skin Mashups or Halo REQ packs
    • In-game currency such as Minecraft Coins

    Certain pre-order bonuses and special edition content falls into these categories, so you may not be able to share those items as they can only be redeemed once from the account of the person who purchased the game.

    Hi friend,

    Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with gifting this DLC. Does your nephew use a child account for Xbox Live? Sometimes gifting to child accounts can cause issues. Here's a support article for issues with gifting codes.

    I hope this helps with your issue.

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community

    Hello Hootsmun, by your description has Minecraft in just one account and would like to play with your child correct?

    If that's the case, unfortunately it won't be possible, game sharing is only possible on Xbox One consoles, if you try to play on your PC for example and you on another device each account will have to have a license of the game, the fact that you put your child's account in the family does not share the game.

    Best regards,
