  1. Question about how Xbox Live Gold & Game Pass Sharing works


    Hello,

    For Christmas my partner purchased me an Xbox One so that I could finally play No Man's Sky. I also got six months of Game Pass Ultimate.

    My partner also made a Gamertag with her pre-existing Microsoft Account on the console (no Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass). And she found out that she loves No Man's Sky. So much so that now we are considering getting another Xbox just so that we could play
    together in the game.

    Here is the setup that I have questions about. If:

    1. Both my partner's Xbox account (Silver / Free), and my account (Gold) are on the same "main / primary" console,
    2. My partner plays on this "main / primary" console,
    3. I play on the "secondary" console,

    Can we both reap the benefits of my Xbox Live Gold account, and can we play No Man's Sky together?

    :)

    Yes, as long as she is using the console set as your Home, you can each share the gold/game pass games.

    Hi Guilherme,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums with this question. In relation to your question about sharing gold, if the account that holds the subscription is made the primary Home Console profile, then you are able to share Xbox Live Gold with any other
    profile on the console. For further information about this, you can read the following support articles as they are pretty helpful:

    I hope that this helps out!

    2 Xbox Ones, 2 people, 1 Live Gold account?

    Hi in reply to your question Yes you could share gold with her but your account would have to be on her xbox and your account would have to be signed in to share xbox live. With setting the home xbox's yes you both would be able to share games if both of
    you have each other xbox's set as home. You only can game share 3 times a year though.

    If you have any more questions or are a little confused here is a link on how gold sharing and game sharing works.
