  1. Use 2 xbox in one house with one account?


    I have looked all over for an answer to this specific question but I cannot seem to find the sific Lee what I'm asking. All the answers that I have gotten elsewhere have been not helpful because they don't address the specific question.

    I have my main Xbox series X in my game room. I want to add an Xbox series s to my living room for guests. But I do not want to have to buy all of my games again on another account. So can I use my ONE Account to sign into both xboxes to access my game pass and digital library?

    The answer I keep getting with no clarification is that I have to sign into the non-primary Xbox with another account and make it the home account or something and then make my primary Xbox the secondary or something?? I'm very confused about it. Is this even possible?? ONE account, TWO xboxes in the same house?

    :)

    Use 2 xbox in one house with one account?

    You would need to sign into the console you wish to make your Home (or primary) and set it as your Home that way. So if you want to share your games on the secondary console, you'll need to sign into the secondary console and set it as your Home, but yes, that's the idea.

    Use 2 xbox in one house with one account?

    Thanks for the clarification. The front xbox will be 99.9% child /spouse usage.

    So, my understanding to share library is that I would make a guest or "dummy" account on the secondary box, set that device as home from my primary device, and then it's good to use?

    You can sign into both consoles with your account and use your library on both consoles. You can only play on 1 console at a time with the same account though.

    If you are going to be having guests use the console in the living room though, you'll want them to use their own account or create a guest account for them. You never want to let someone else use your account (they could do something to get you banned, buy something on accident, etc.). In that case, you can set that console as your Home to share your games with them. Even if you do that, you can still sign in and play on either console on your own account.

    Xbox live

    We have 2 xbox ones in the house, do we need to buy 2 xbox live subscriptions or can they share one on both consoles
    You can use one subscription on both console inside the same house, set as Xbox home of the profile that own the subscription, the console used by the other user, and use the other console online with the profile that have the subscription active.
