  1. Why can’t I share games with other accounts I own?


    I currently have an Xbox series X in my office I also have three other series S Xbox’s in other rooms of my house. My son has a Microsoft account I have a Microsoft account why do I have to buy games apps and movies twice. Is there a workaround for this we both have separate Xbox live accounts that I pay for this seems crazy.

    :)

    No console works like you suggest as Lucas mentiined all consoles only allow 2 consoles one for home and one that the owner can use for roaming but needs to be signed in online to use

    Keep in mind all consoles have a limjt

    Most have 2-3 switches per year Xbox is generous at 5

    We could always go back to 1995 and one console period

    Hello, Pete. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    You can share subscriptions and games with as many family members as you want, as long as it is only on one console - since it needs to be set as your account home Xbox.

    Why can’t I play the game I own?

    Hi, I hope you're doing great out there. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you with your concern.

    Are you seeing an option to get Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate? If yes, it is asking you for an Xbox Live Gold subscription which is required to play a paid online multiplayer game.

    You can get the Xbox Live Gold subscription individually.

    Game Pass Ultimate

    My friend game shared me game pass ultimate but I can’t access any perks from EA Play, and it says would I like to join ultimate. I can download games but not the perks. I was able to download perks before but I can’t now.
    sharing an account with Ultimate membership only allows other users on the console to access the gamepass games and the online multiplayer of games with gold, if previously you could use the advantages of EA play of That account, probably a Bug occurred because the benefits are only for the account with the subscription and not for the other accounts in the console

    Beware of trying to obtain benefits from a shared account to your personal account, it can be understood as bad practices.
