    Sharing Game Pass Ultimate/Xbox Live across 2 consoles in same household


    I have two consoles in my house. My "home console" is my Xbox One X in our living room and is directly wired to our home network router. The second console is my original Xbox One in our basement and is connected wirelessly to the same router.

    I have the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription with my Microsoft account and as stated, I have my living room Xbox One X set as my home console.

    The only other person in our household who I share the Game Pass with is my son, who usually plays on whatever console is available, but primarily the Xbox One X if I'm not using it.

    I'm trying to understand if I can share the Game Pass Ultimate benefits with my son on both consoles. I've read multiple threads on this with one single common answer, which is to set one console as your home console and then either one of us will be able
    to sign into either console to use the Game Pass features. That is all fine and dandy. I've done that. My question is not about whether we can use Game Pass on either console, my question is can we BOTH use Game Pass on BOTH consoles...AT THE SAME TIME?

    The problem that doesn't get addressed in the threads I've read so far is that I have to be signed in with my account on a given console in order to use the Game Pass features. Sure, it's no problem for my son to go downstairs and sign me in and then he
    can use Game Pass with his own account, or go back upstairs and sign me in there and still use his own account with Game Pass. That is not the problem. The problem is that I have to be signed in on the same console he is using in order for him to use Game
    Pass Ultimate (which also means Xbox Live). That means if he is playing an online multiplayer game (Game Pass or not) with friends using Xbox Live on one console and I want to play something else on the other console, as soon as I go to the other console,
    I will need to sign in with my own account which has the GPU subscription which signs me out of my son's console and instantly cuts off his "shared" GPU benefits and his ability to communicate with his friends through Xbox Live.

    So maybe I've missed something somewhere, but if there's a way we can both use GPU on both consoles at the same time, I need help understanding how to set it up. If that is not possible and I just need to get him his own GPU subscription, I will be disappointed
    if not slightly furious, but at least I will have my answer.

    Sorry for the exhaustive question but I just haven't been able to find any other thread that seems to address the issue of concurrent and/or simultaneous use of GPU.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Sharing Game Pass Ultimate/Xbox Live across 2 consoles in same household

    Hello Aintry,

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums. We understand you have question on home console set up. In short, if your account is the one with the subscription, you can access both consoles with no issues. Your son however, can use the console set as home with
    no issues. If he uses the other console, your profile will need to be signed in. So basically the answer is no cant use both profiles on either console at any time. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Hope this helps clarify things.

    Brad

    (Share) Xbox Live

    I have Xbox Gold and Game Pass Ultimate on my designated home console. When my friend signs it to her account on my console. She cannot access my Xbox Live gold or Game Pass Ultimate. How can i share these subscriptions?
    Game sharing is only allowed with in households

    My brother and I share a PC, he can't play the game pass games I have downloaded and vice versa

    On game pass ultimate both accounts need to have the game pass since there isn't any game sharing on pc, I came across the same issue but it fixed itself when both myself and partner got Xbox game pass ultimate at the same time.

    Xbox live and dlc’s

    Game sharing is not something that we discuss here. The home Xbox sharing feature is meant to be used by families in the same household not across the internet with friends.

    xbox live vs game pass

    If you want just game pass for them, one account must buy the game pass and be set as homebox. Then they can share game pass as same as live. But only on one console. College mentioned game pass ultimate. It is a good option. If you sign for ultimate,
    they will have a month or two of ultimate, and all they Live converted to ultimate. For example. If you buy 2 months ultimate (there is an offer for 2 bucks now) and they have 5 months of Live, they will get 7 months of Game pass ultimate that includes game
    pass. Live, and game pass for pc. If you buy with auto-renewal option, they will get one more month. If you don't like it, just wait for the period to pass, and then return to Live and game pass. Never cancel Ultimate, because you will lose remaining Live
    time. There is no family pass.
