  2. Can you sign in Xbox live with a different E-mail account?

    So, I have already an Xbox Live user and my E-mail account I used to sign in Xbox Live is about to close. Can I use a different E-mail account to sign in Live with the same user?

    It's important, because I have all my achievements/ plus friends in this user and I cannot try it out, because I have not created another E-mail account, yet.

    GH5 & Lips Mics?

    Just grab a different controller and hit the guide/xbox button and go to sign in and select the account (doesn't need to be live/gold/silver account).

    For example I sign in using a guitar, friend 1 signs in using the drums, friend 2 signs in using a controller (for use with the mic) and friend 3 signs in with another guitar controller.

    Misspelt email, no access.

    Hey there, I Is Hoodini

    What email provider did your friend use to create the Xbox Live account? (You can find this out with the @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, etc)

    When was the Xbox Live Account created?

    If your friend has entered the email address incorrectly when signing into Xbox Live, then all they need to do is enter the correct email address when they sign into their account.

    Hey Hottub Cowboy -

    Are there any other Xbox Live accounts on your Xbox One console that may have accidentally been redeemed on? Or is your Xbox Live account on a friend's Xbox One where they may have been accidentally redeemed?

    Keep us posted! :)

    I believe you would also need xbox live on the account you are trying to play with him on. For me when I use My account I need xbox live to play crossplay games such as Gears 5 with a friend whos on xbox

    Xbox says I didn't buy the game.

    If you friend is gamesharing with someone else chances are that the other home account has purchased the game although your friend is able to play the said game. To make sure your friend can check the purchases made through his account:

    I can't figure out how to access my account

    Let me see if I understand you correctly. When you signed up for Xbox Live did you use your friends Microsoft account email address and password? If that is the case unfortunately your friend was the actual owner of the account. Anything that you purchased
    would have been purchased on his Microsoft account. Xbox Live is linked and part of a Microsoft account. Just like your YouTube account is actually part of your Google account. After your friend passed away his Microsoft account and the linked Xbox account
    would be retired and you would not be able to access it again. There is no way to transfer the Xbox Live account to another person or Microsoft account.
