For a set monthly charge, Microsoft's all-you-can-eat Game Pass membership gives you access to more than 100 games. If you purchase Game Pass, you can use it on two consoles simultaneously and even share the same game across them. Sharing Your Membership to Game Pass Before you continue, let's clear up one thing: sharing your subscription between two consoles is not a problem, and Microsoft will not restrict you for doing so. The "game sharing" mechanism, developed by Microsoft, enables the sharing of subscriptions and games with other consoles. How To Share Xbox Game Pass Ultimate With Family - YouTube Photo Credit: YouTube Only two consoles can be used with this technique. These two Xbox consoles can be any two Xbox consoles that support Game Pass. You can thus use your subscription on both of your Xbox One S and Xbox Series X devices, new or old. Keep in mind that some games will only work on Series X and S consoles going forward, so you won't be able to play them on earlier systems. This mechanism enables you to share your Game Pass membership with any other console. Once the setup is complete, it doesn't have to be your console or have access to your Xbox account. To begin with, you must first set it up on the console you wish to share with. Also Read: Which game console—the PS4 or Xbox One—is superior? If you're sharing with someone you don't completely trust and you can't arrange the share in person, proceed with extreme caution. To enable sharing, you'll need to sign in with your Xbox credentials. For security reasons, you should generally delete your account thereafter unless you completely trust the other party. This shouldn't be as much of an issue if both consoles are housed in the same building. Any user accounts on that (secondary) console will be able to utilize the applicable app to access the Game Pass library once you've shared your membership with another console. In addition to accessing Xbox Live Gold if you also pay for it, others can download games as if the membership was linked to their own accounts. Best Game Subscription Services (2023): Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation Plus, Nintendo Online | WIRED Photo Credit: WIRED Instructions for Using Game Pass on Two Xbox Consoles One console may be designated as your "Home" Xbox by Microsoft, in which case everyone using that console will have access to your Game Pass subscription. You can give your membership to anyone who uses the second console by setting your "Home" console to that one. Anyone using that additional "Home" console will be able to access any games you possess as part of your game collection. You can use your primary console to play games as usual when a secondary system is designated as your "Home" Xbox. Simply log in (manually if you choose, or as you normally would) to access your Game Pass subscription and game library.
  • Log into the secondary Xbox using your account
Although it can appear hard, this is really rather easy. In this illustration, Person A and Person B each own an Xbox. While still being able to use Xbox A, Person A wants to share their Game Pass subscription with Xbox B. The first step is to connect Xbox B to Person A's account. By tapping the Xbox button, going to the "Profile and System" menu, and choosing "Add or Switch" then "Add New," you can accomplish this. To add it to Xbox B, log in using your login name and password.
  • Change the "Home" console to the secondary Xbox
It's time to set Xbox B as the "Home" console so that Person B can access the library now that Person A's account is enabled. Go to Settings > General > Customization and choose the "My Home Xbox" button to accomplish this. The "Make This My Home Xbox" button is located at the bottom of the screen. Check it after a little delay. After everything is finished, Person A's subscriptions and game library ought to be accessible to all Xbox B accounts. Things to Know Before Sharing a Game Pass Keep in mind that you can only change your "Home" Xbox five times a year if you want to acquire new equipment or modify who has access to your account. Your "Home" Xbox will be set till the time runs out after you've made these five adjustments. How to Determine Whether the Xbox Network Is Down? Person A must have an internet connection in order to play Game Pass games on Xbox A. As digital licenses are transmitted to the "Home" console (Xbox B), games can be played without a network in the event of a blackout. Playing games on Xbox A, which is no longer set to "Home," requires a live network connection. On Xbox A, secondary accounts cannot access Game Pass titles unless Person A, the subscription's primary user, is also logged in. It is just a matter of signing in as usual, adding and switching to a second account by hitting the Xbox button, selecting the "Profile and system tab," and signing in by clicking the "Add or Switch" button.

Game Pass Ultimate also functions on Windows Provided you have Game Pass Ultimate, your Game Pass subscription also functions on PC. The same membership also allows you to use a PC and a console at the same time to play games. Family Plan Required for Game Pass The finest gaming deal right now may be Game Pass. In addition to a huge selection of games, all Microsoft exclusives are also available on Game Pass the day they are released. The only thing Game Pass lacks is a family package, which would enable sharing of a single subscription across more than two consoles simultaneously.
