    Xbox Gold/Gamepass sharing not working


    I've got Gamepass ultimate, and share it with my family no problem. It's always worked, no issues.

    I've just been helping a friend out, who has bought a year's Gamepass ultimate on his own (Home) Xbox, and is trying to let his children access Gold/Gamepass with it, but it's just not working.

    I've confirmed that the account emails on the Xbox accounts all match the emails shown in the family settings on the website (and family settings such as screen time are working fine, plus the family settings screen show the correct Xbox 'names' for the
    two Xboxes in the house).

    My friend can access Gamepass games, and play online (e.g. Fortnite and Minecraft), but when his child signs in (with him signed out), they get prompted to join gold.

    With him signed IN, it seems to work ok, but obviously this isn't how the Home Xbox solution is supposed to work.

    I've triple checked that it's set as his Home Xbox, i can't think of any other reason it wouldn't work??

    :)

    Xbox Gold/Gamepass sharing not working

    You mentioned that their are two Xboxes in your friends house.

    Your friend would only be able to set One of these consoles as his profiles home console and that is the console his son would be able to share his fathers subscriptions and games with.

    The second Non home console he would have to have his fathers profile signed in at the same time in order to play it.

    No matter what console a profile is signed into that profile will always be able to play his digital games and use any of its subscriptions.

    Each profile can set one console at a time as their home console and any other profile on that console can then play its digital games and use any of its subscriptions without the main profile being signed in at the same time.

    Each profile can switch which console it has set as its home console only five times a year.

    The family settings have nothing to do with the home xbox it does not matter if someone is in your family or not as long as you have a console set as your profiles home console any other profile on that console would then be able to play your digital games
    and use your subscriptions.

    Try performing a hard reset by pressing the power button on the console for 10 seconds or until the power shuts off completely. Then unplug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes.

    Linked Accounts Trying To Share Game Pass Games

    Hello. you can share gamepass and gold, even if it's ultimate subscription, but unfortunately, gold games, gamepass tasks only have access to the main account and not the secondary

    Game pass shareable or nah brah?

    I have Game Sharing with Xbox live gold, I share with my son in the next room, so he gets to play the games I own also, but he also able to download and play the games from Gamepass, but gamepass is not sharable like Gold is, I think ( as I am not 100%
    sure ) that is shares with the system set to the Home Console. So in my experience yes you can download and play the Gamepass games as my Son does it with me.
