  1. Xbox family accounts


    Dear community,

    I have one Xbox One S with 3 accounts (family): my account as a parent account and two kids accounts. I also have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. As far as I understood, my kids can also participate from the Game Pass. This feature works only when I log into
    my account and then switch over to the kids accounts. When the Xbox is rebooted and the kids log directly into their accounts, they cannot start the Game Pass games as long as I do not login into my account. Is this behaviour correct?

    Since the Xbox becomes a primary gaming device for my kids, we had lot of discussions about sharing, so we plan to buy two new Xboxes (All-Digital) for the kids. My question here is: has Microsoft any Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold offers for families (like
    Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership or Apple Music Family)? I can buy two Minecraft copies for my kids, no problem. But do the kids need Xbox Live Gold to play online games (especially Minecraft)?

    Thanks in advance and best regards

    :)

    Gold Family pack only allowing 3 accounts

    • What is a primary and secondary Family Pack account?
    The Xbox LIVE account used to purchase a Gold Family Pack membership is the primary Family Pack account. All other Xbox LIVE accounts associated with the Family Pack membership are secondary accounts.

    To see and add family pack members:

    On your console, sign in using the Xbox LIVE account that you used to sign up for a Family Pack membership (the primary account).

    Go to Settings, and then select Family.

    The primary and secondary accounts are shown. To add or remove family members, please see

    Managing Gold Family Pack members.

    Change the primary account.

    Unfortunately not, it appears the primary/lead account is always the one used to purchase the membership.

    Two ways to tell if he is in a family as a child account already.

    Sign into his account at account.microsoft.com/family if there is no other family members then he is an adult in his own family.

    Sign into his account on the xbox console go into settings and under the account tab go to family settings and go down to manage family members and it will tell you if there are any family members in the family there.

    He would have to set you as a family member in order for you to have xbox live.

    Two gamertags (two kids) on one Microsoft Account?

    Hi April,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in forums with this issue. When it comes to accounts for Xbox/Microsoft, there is no way to merge two accounts into a single account. If you would like to be able to monitor both accounts, you can use Family settings to designate
    them as part of your Family by listing them as child accounts with your own account as the parent one. Here are some handy support articles that can guide you and provide you with information on how to set up a Microsoft family account:


    I hope that this information helps you out!
