If you have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription that you would like to share with other people including friends and family. This article will show you how to quickly and easily share your account in a similar manner people share their Netflix accounts. The only catch is that you can only do this from PC.
Xbox Game Pass is unbelievable value for money at only ten dollars a month for a catalogue of 100 ever-changing games. If you haven’t already had a look at Game Pass, you’ll probably be surprised at the quality of games on offer. Unlike EA Origin and EA Acess Microsoft Game Pass lists a ton of AAA+ games and a range of mixed era content. Including retro and arcade games.
Although Xbox Game Pass allows you to play games on Xbox or PC with a single subscription, there’s also a fantastic way to use a single Xbox Game Pass account across multiple PC’s and people whilst still playing on your own Xbox username. Putting it simply, it works in a very similar way to the way people share their Netflix accounts. Has your interest peaked? Let’s jump right in.
Can you share your Xbox Game Pass subscription like you share your Netflix account? You sure can! Find out How.
As we mentioned above this unique sharing method for Xbox Game Pass Subscriptions is only possible from PC. And may or may not have been an intended feature from Microsoft. More than likely it’s an exploit that will be fixed at some stage, however, while it’s working, you might as well take advantage of it.
To begin, you’ll need to have access to the Microsoft account that the Xbox Game Pass Subscription is active on. Once you have the sign-in details, sign in to the account in the Microsoft Store on as many PC’s as you’d like. This is the main component, only sign into the Microsoft Store using the account. (Just be aware they will have the ability to make purchases using your payment details so choose who you share with wisely.)
Once you are signed into the account in the Microsoft Store, open the Xbox App on your computer and sign in to your Xbox account. This can be anyone’s personal account, it doesn’t have to be the same account you signed in to the Microsoft Store. This allows you to use Game Pass but and still accumulate achievements on your own personal account.
As far as we are aware there doesn’t seem to be a limit to how many accounts you can use, though it’s probably a good idea to limit it to around 3 or 4, just in case Microsoft starts swinging the ban hammer.
On a side Note…
Seeing as you are obviously a PC gamer, there’s a good chance you’re also using Discord for all your in-game communication needs. If you didn’t already know Discord now has a cool new Text-to-Speech feature that allows you to communicate using voice chat if you only have the ability to type. This guide will also show you how to mute the feature if you have people in your server/channel spamming the TTS feature in Discord.
