    Xbox Game Sharing Not Working

    Hi ,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

    First of all, I would be cautious about game sharing in this manner as it violates the

    Xbox Live Code of Conduct
    to share account information and your account is therefore compromised if it is on someone else's console who could have access to your account information without the proper account security.

    When an account designates an Xbox One as it's
    Home Console
    , all other accounts on the same console would have the benefit of playing the games that account owns. Each account can only have one home console and you only have 5 switches per year. It all depends on what game you want to share and who
    owns it. That person would need to make the other person's Xbox the Home console, but the person would need to physically put in their log in information and lock down their profile. Sharing account details is not allowed on Xbox Live.

    Home console sharing is meant to share games and subscrptions within the same household between family members. Anything else would violate the Code of Conduct for account sharing.
    Btw when i said friend i meant my brother. Thanks for the help.

    Xbox game sharing not working

    Hey there Josh Murray

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forums for clarity when it comes to sharing games. I can understand how not being able to play this game your friend is trying to share with you could certainly be disheartening.

    Does your friend have Game Pass Ultimate or the regular game pass?

    Also, have you tried
    uninstalling and reinstalling
    the game itself? I before the introduction of Game Pass Ultimate, when one had their Game Pass cancelled if they still had it installed, it would turn into a trial.

    When you get a chance, try uninstalling the game and see if it let's you reinstall it.

    Hope this was helpful.

    Thanks!

    Xbox Game Sharing Not Working

    Hey there !

    Thanks for reaching out to the Xbox Community Answer Forums! I understand you are having problems game sharing with your friend. You will need to designate your friend's account's home Xbox to your Xbox to game share. Keep in mind, that your friend will
    only be able to play the games you share on that particular Xbox. You can also take a look at the following resource for more help:


    I hope you are able to find a solution to your problem. Let me know if you need any further help. :)
    Thanks.

    But it wont let me make my account my home xbox for some reason
