The next stage is to transform your game share on Xbox One into your own personal gaming console. Go to Settings > Personalize > Make my home Xbox to create my home Xbox.
Game sharing on an Xbox One allows you and a friend to share game collections as well as Xbox Live Gold memberships, including Game Pass. It's a great way to play a wider variety of games at a limited price.
For Game sharing on an Xbox One, you'll need your own Xbox One systems and accounts. However, once all of the stuff is in place, game sharing is a breeze. To get the functionality working properly, take these instructions.
The instructions that follow will help you and your friend figure out what to do with your Xbox One now. You'll have to go through the process twice to switch libraries: once to link your Xbox One to their account, and then again to link your Xbox One to yours.
When you're ready, select the symbol in the top left corner of the home screen to access the user account menu. Select Add new to add both accounts to your Xbox One.
The next stage is to transform your games on Xbox One into your own personal gaming console. Go to Settings > Personalize > Make my home Xbox to create my home Xbox. In that menu, set the system as your default device. According to the description, "if you make this your home Xbox, anyone can play games without having to sign in as you." It's practical and, of course, just what we require.
Finally, in your game library, go to My Games & Apps > Ready to Install to finish the procedure. Here you should see a list of all the games you have access to through your account. You can share an Xbox Live Gold account to divide it.
There are a few drawbacks to the procedure. Be careful what information you save on your account because your friend will be able to make purchases on the Xbox Store using your account. We strongly advise you to only share games with a trusted friend or family member. You won't have to be concerned about kids making purchases without your knowledge.
Unless you've designated your Xbox One as your home Xbox, you won't be able to access your digital game collection if your internet connection is lost.
You'll have to go through the same process again if you upgrade to an Xbox One X or switch to a new Xbox One.
Keep in mind that you can only replace your Xbox at home five times per year before Microsoft stops you. This keeps you from sharing your games with your pals by preventing you from switching accounts frequently. To avoid being locked out of your account due to changing your home Xbox settings, choose one friend to switch with on a regular basis.
You now know how to set up and use Xbox One game sharing. It's a terrific method to cut down on gaming expenditures if you do it with someone you know well. It's a good idea to share the games you buy with a pal in case Microsoft ever disables this feature.
You'll need a location to put all of your game-shared games now that you have them. Thankfully, the Xbox One allows you to expand your storage capacity by connecting an external hard drive
