  1. Xbox Game Pass – Insider Preview FAQ


    What regions is this available in?


    Only in Colombia and Ireland.

    I have time accumulated in my membership, what happens to it if I join?


    Your time will migrate with you to the new plan on a fixed ratio; for example, a month of Game Pass Ultimate will be worth 18 days of this preview plan. Once your converted time runs out, it will renew at the listed price.

    However, the people you invite to share your membership with cannot convert their existing time. Before joining a group, a group member will need to cancel their existing subscriptions or wait for their existing subscriptions to expire.

    Once I join, what happens to my current membership? Can I go back to another plan, and how?


    You can go back to any Game Pass plan upon your next renewal by cancelling this preview SKU and repurchasing that plan. Your time will not be converted back. The people you invite can leave the group at any time for the duration of this preview.

    What’s the difference between this preview and console home sharing?


    Xbox home console is an existing feature that allows you to share games and content with other people who sign in to your home console with their profile. However, it’s limited to that device, so friends and family must sign in to the console you identify as your home Xbox to access those benefits.

    While Xbox home console applies to only one console (the one you choose to be your home console), this preview allows you to share your membership across multiple devices, and it’s not limited to just one console.

    When you share an Xbox Game Pass membership with this Xbox Game Pass - Insider Preview, the primary account holder and up to four additional members each get their own unique access to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content, and benefits regardless of what device they play on. All the people you invite can play at the same time, even the same game.

    The people you invite can play games on any supported devices they sign in to and their individual play history attached to their gamertags carries across all supported devices.

    Okay, you’ve convinced me, how much time do I have to enroll in this preview?


    Enrollment is limited and will remain open while the offer is available. However, once enrolled, you may share benefits until the program is made publicly available or is officially canceled.

    Who can I share my membership with?


    You can share your membership with up to four of your friends and family. The people you share your membership with don’t need to be Insiders, but they must reside in the same country as you.

    How does the invitation work?


    As the primary account holder, on https://account.microsoft.com/services, you’ll be able to manage your membership and:

    • Add and remove people you want to share benefits with
    • See who you’re sharing your membership with

    Note: If you don’t see the option to share after joining the preview, please sign out and sign back in.

    To add people, just expand the Share subscription section and select Start sharing. You’ll have options to Invite someone via email or Create a link to share that you can copy and share with your friend in a different way if you don’t want to use email.

    The people you’ve invited can see on https://account.microsoft.com/services that they are getting Ultimate benefits that you shared with them. They can manage and remove themselves at any time through the page as well.

    What information can group members see about other group members?


    The only information a group member can see is who the primary account holder is. The primary account holder manages who is in the group but cannot see any other account information such as games played.

    Are there limits to how many groups I can join? How many people can I invite?


    You can only be a member of one group at a time. As the primary account holder, you can invite up to four people at a time with a max of eight people who accept to join your account per year. Your group members can only join a group up to two times per year. This includes leaving and rejoining the same group.

    What do the people I invite have to do to join?


    The first thing they need is a Microsoft account, so, if they do not have one already, they must create one. With an account, they just need to follow the “Yes, join” button in the email or link that they will receive. From there it’s a straightforward process. They will land on the invite acceptance page, where they must sign in and follow the instructions. Note that they cannot convert any existing subscription time to the group. They can choose to cancel their subscription(s) or wait for the existing subscription to expire.

    Is this preview going to become a new Game Pass plan?


    See our announcement for details on this plan moving forward.

    Can I participate in this flight if I have a Game Pass Ultimate subscription that was purchased with Xbox All Access?


    No, due to licensing restrictions, members with Ultimate subscriptions acquired via Xbox All Access should not participate in this preview as primary or secondary members.

    Once I join, can I still redeem codes for Game Pass (Ultimate, Console, and PC), Gold, or EA Play?


    No. You cannot redeem codes for other Game Pass, Gold, or EA Play subscriptions if you have the Xbox Game Pass – Insider Preview plan. You’ll need to redeem the code before joining the preview as a primary account holder or wait for your Xbox Game Pass - Insider Preview subscription to end to redeem the code.

    Are there any known issues with this preview?


    Known issues will be included in the Xbox Insider Wire announcement and latest Insider Release Notes at https://news.xbox.com/xboxinsider/.

    Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Deal After Conversion

    The benefit extended to the general public is the same that was offered during the Insider preview, in that existing Gold and Game Pass subscriptions were converted 1:1 when upgrading to Game Pass Ultimate. Redemptions of prepaid Gold and Game Pass standard
    codes after the account already has ultimate is also the same, with a reduced ration shown in the FAQ.

    Xbox Live Ultimate thoughts?

    It's currently limited to those in the Insider program. It started with the Alpha / Skip Ahead rings, and recently expanded to the Beta ring.

    Cannot run, delete or install games on xbox(beta).

    Hi Yifan,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. We recommend to first report the issue within the insider hub. As this is a Beta there are known issues. One is the storage and saves of games. Here is the

    Xbox Live Ultimate thoughts?

    If you are an Insider in the Skip Ahead, Alpha, or Beta rings, then there should be a quest in the Insider app for Game Pass Ultimate; under Insider Content.

    Also, it's currently only available in certain regions (English speaking Xbox Insiders in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia)
