    Two Xbox Ones in same household. How to manage Xbox Live?


    Hi.

    Me and my brother have shared an Xbox One since release day, we are purchasing a second one for me this weekend. We already have Xbox Live on his GamerTag, from now on Ill be playing on the new console, do i need to purchase Xbox Live? or can I still share
    his gold membership?

    If we can share, can we both play in the same house at the same time?

    Thanks In Advance Two Xbox Ones in same household. How to manage Xbox Live? :)

  3. Two household Xbox ones and tips to manage games

    you are correct about home console:

    when you purchase with your account you can Play with your account anywhere and any Profile can Play on your homeconsole, though this is meant to enable your friends to Play on your specific xbox it would work the way you wish it to. BUT because you only
    purchase it once and use it on 2 profiles at the same time MS could consider this to be marketplace theft.

    In order for you to each play online - you will need your own seperate xbox live accounts. In addition, you'll each need a copy of the game you wish to play or a digital license for each game on each xbox live account.

    The sharing feature (in use with the Home gamertag) is localized only. This means that if your brother had the Gold membership and was set as Home on the console and had you in his family you were able to share out the membership with no issues.

    In order for you to play online on the new console you would either have to have your brother set the new console as his Home console or purchase a Gold membership of your own.

    If the games were purchased on your brothers gamertag then setting his tag as Home on the new console will also allow you to access and play those games at the same time as he is playing.

    Two Xbox's in the same household

    You can't sign into 2 different Xbox Ones with the same console. You would each need your own account (if you don't have one already) and then you would each be able to sign into each console and play separate games.

    Two Xbox's in the same household

    You can share between two profiles, you have account A the primary account and account B the new account.

    On the first console you have account A, and on the second console add account A make this the home xbox

    https://beta.support.xbox.com/search?phrase=home%20xbox

    Now add the second profile to that console and now the second account will have access to everything on the primary account to include the xbox gold membership. This way you can play on two separate accounts, even together in the same game.

    There is one additional issue and that is having two xbox's on the same network but there is a solution for that.

    Two Xboxes within same household

    Home Xbox is a fantastic feature to help make this happen, as Leslie mentioned. All content in your account (games, subscriptions, etc.) will be shared to both consoles. Just know that if there is any content (games, DLC, etc.) purchased on your son's account
    and not yours, only he will be able to access that content on the Xbox where he is signed in.

    Does your son already have his own account? If not, check out this link to set up an account for him under your account: Add a new member
    to your family on Xbox One
