How To Share Games On Xbox Series X
The Xbox Series X is the latest console from the Xbox brand. The first device was launched in 2001, and it has been a rival of Sony’s PlayStation consoles ever since. Both consoles have gone on to dominate the console market but have their noticeable differences.
The Xbox has made a name for itself over the years for reasons beyond the video games that can be operated on it. The controllers have been praised, along with its subscription service: the game pass. Game-sharing is another great feature that the console offers. This piece will take a brief look at the game-sharing feature.
What is Game-Sharing on Xbox?
This feature is built into Xbox consoles – it allows you to share your Xbox library with another device. Consoles and video games are quite expensive, so it’s great to have the option of saving some money by sharing games with friends. You’ll need the friend’s login details and an Xbox Live subscription to use game-sharing.
Let’s now take a look at the steps required to share games on an Xbox Series X:
- Boot up your console.
- Sign in to the Xbox Live account.
- Click the Xbox button and move to the left side of the menu.
- You’ll notice the ‘Add New‘ option. Follow this up by clicking on the ‘A’ button on your controller.
- Enter your friend’s login details, and click on the ‘A’ button.
- Follow the instructions on your screen and set your preferences.
- Press the Xbox button, click on ‘Sign in’ before clicking on the ‘A’ button. You then got to select your friend’s account that you’ve just added
- Click on the Xbox button and head to the ‘Settings‘ option.
- Click on ‘Personalization‘ and follow it up by clicking on ‘My home Xbox‘.
- Pick the ‘Make this my home Xbox‘ option and click on ‘A.’
- After this is done, repeat the same steps for the other Xbox device. On this occasion, enter the Xbox Live login credentials and set the console as your home Xbox.
This feature also allows you to share your Xbox Live Gold membership, including Game Pass. It’s also available on the Xbox One. All of this aligns with the Xbox brand, which has always prioritized fighting video games that bring friends to play with one another. Sony’s PlayStation has historically been associated with narrative single-player video games. Tastes differ, and it’s great that both options exist for gamers.
