    Xbox Ultimate Family Pass won't let my kids play games unless I am also signed in


    I have an xbox series x and wanted to use my older xbox one for my kids to play games with their family account either;

    1) Play online together like minecraft where my kids use the xbox one and I am on the seriesx.

    2) Play game pass games by themselves without me having to sign in as well.

    The family plan clears says they can play game pass games free as well but it seems I need to be signed in for them to play which very much defeats the purpose of the family plan. Am I doing something wrong or am I expecting something that is not supported.

    :)

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community.

    Xbox family group is not meant to share games or subscription.

    To share games from one account with others with accounts on the console you have to put the account as home on Xbox.

    More information on how Xbox Home works is at this link.

    Can I be on Xbox 360 and ONE at the same time while on live?

    Depends on what your doing. I tried playing Madden 15 on my xbox one while my kids were playing minecraft on the 360 and no dice. I could play as long as I didn't sign in. It won't let me play Madden Ultimate Team unless I do sign in so....

    Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Famly Sharing

    Hi There,

    The Xbox App for PC on Windows 10 should automatically have the Ultimate subscription flow in when my kids sign in but that is not the case. My kids are able to receive the membership on the console through my account and they can play the games through
    the pass which works fine no complaints. I need to know when will this Game pass subscription sharing will work with Xbox app for PC.

    Thanks,

    Akash
    Because it doesnt

    Home sharing is only a feature on the xbox one

    Not the pc

    Can I use my Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription on multiple Windows 10 PCs?

    Yes, just like Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass, you can use this subscription wherever you sign in. Your subscription is tied to you, not to a specific device.

    https://support.xbox.com/en-CA/billing/xbox-subscriptions/xbox-game-pass-ultimate-faq

    Keep in mind that it only applirs.to the membership itself

    Your kids cannot download any game on their own profile but they can use the xbox app.to play the games

    On the PC it's a bit awkward.

    First of all, you'll have to make sure yourkids s added to your Microsoft family. Sign in with your account on https://account.microsoft.com/family. There add your kids is
    Microsoft Account if not already done so.

    Now the complicated part on getting the Game Pass Games on your kid's PC:

    Your kids has to add your Microsoft Account as a second user to their PC.

    Then with your kids SIGNED IN, have themr go to the Windows Store or Xbox Game Pass App.

    If they signed in to these apps, to sign out temporarily from these apps, and you will have to sign in with your account.

    You ONLY sign into the APPS! You do NOT sign out your kids from their logged in account on the PC!

    Then with your account signed in on the store app or the Xbox Game Pass app, your kids can then download and install the PC games.

    GamePass Ultimate Family Sharing (specifically for upcoming streaming service)

    Hi,

    That's my understanding - if you buy one game pass ultimate, you'll be able to use your sign-on for multiple xbox's and then your children would be able to sign in also and have the benefit of your game pass.

    But you'll only be able to sign in as you on the game streaming side. So if you have an xbox, one of the kids can use that, and you on the mobile. But that still leaves you one game pass subscription short....

    Bring back the old family subscriptions that they had in the 360 days, that would solve this issue.

    Regards

    No it won't, unless it's game pass ultimate.
