    Playing different online games on 2 xboxes under 1 Gold membership


    I’ve searched all over but couldnt find my exact scenario.

    I had 1 Xbox one S with a gold membership under 1 gamertag. I now have 2 Xbox one S’s. 1 for my son in his room, 1 for me in the living room. Is it possible for him to be playing an online game
    (I.e. Roblox)in his room on his Xbox, while I’m playing an online game (I.e. Halo 5) in the living room on my Xbox, under my 1 Gold membership? Or does this require an additional Gold membership, or 2 total Gold memberships for the household?

    :)

    The screenshot is off my xbox in the living room. That xbox is set to home. This is with using another made-up gamertag, not my Gold one that my son is using in his room.

    If you switch and your son keeps the Gold on the account he's using, he would set the console you're using as his Home in order to share the Gold.

    If he wishes to use your gamertag, then you do not need to change the settings on
    his Xbox. If the living room Xbox is the one you will be primarily using on a new account, and that is already set as the home Xbox on the account with the membership, then you shouldn't have to do anything.
    Ok, so trying that, I get this:

    Hello Mick. Yes this is possible through the Home Xbox feature in settings. To do this, add your account to your son's Xbox. While signed into your account open the settings menu and go to General>Personalization>My Home Xbox, and select set this
    as my home Xbox. You can now sign out of your account. This will allow your son to play your games and use your gold subscription without having to sign into your account on that Xbox.
    Hi. Thanks for the quick response.

    i left one tidbit out. My son wishes to use my gamertag with the Gold subscription here on out.

    So after that, my son can just carry on with my gamertag and I can create a new one for my living room xbox? Then we can both play differering Gold games online at the same time?

    In this case would i still be setting his xbox as the home xbox? Currently my living room xbox is the home xbox that I always played on with my gamertag.

    I hope this isnt getting too confusing. I know I’m confused for sure.
