    Share a game between a few profiles on the same Xbox X console


    I have 3 accounts on my Xbox X: mine and 2 for my kids. I downloaded a game to the console using my account and I want my kids to be able to play on their accounts. How can I do it?

    :)

    Transfer data from Xbox One to another account

    Hello, it is not possible to transfer items between accounts or profiles; but you can share content between different profiles of the same console, such as downloaded games, as long as the profiles are in the same console, as your home console.

    For more information, check the following link:

    Cannot share Game between profiles on same console

    I figured out what happened. all my content was transferred from another xbox360 console that died. Not sure why it would still let my profile play it or just give some sort of warning, but here is what I had to do.

    Step 1 - Transfer the content license from my old console to my new console by following these steps:

    support.xbox.com/.../download-content


    Step 2 - Redownload ALL my games, addons, etc. (like 100GB for me, thx MSFT) . The easiest way to do this is to follow these instructions:

    support.xbox.com/.../redownload-content

    The content can be shared between profiles (but not moved) on the same console it was downloaded to so long as the original profile has not been banned.
