We’re always looking for ways to offer players more choice and value in how they discover and experience games with their friends and family. Beginning today, Xbox players in Chile, Hungary, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sweden will be able to join a plan that enables up to five friends and family members to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits. These countries will join the players participating in the plan in Colombia and Ireland.
This plan makes it even easier to play the best Game Pass games with friends and family across console, PC, and cloud. You can play at the same time on multiple devices and even play the same game at the same time. Each member can enjoy the library of hundreds of games on console, PC, or cloud (in supported countries).
You can add up to four people to your membership, all with their own unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content, and benefits.
Things to know about this plan:
- The people you share your membership with must reside in the same country as you.
- Joining this plan will convert the time remaining on your membership to time in the new plan, based upon the monetary value of the old membership. For example, a full month of Ultimate will be converted to 18 days of membership for this plan. This way you won’t lose any of the remaining value on your existing subscription. Conversion is final, and users must wait for their new membership to expire before returning to a previous membership.
- Conversion is not available for invited group members. Before joining a group, a group member can cancel their existing subscription or wait for it to expire. If they do not have a Microsoft account, invited friends and family will have to create a new Microsoft account and sign in with it to participate.
- Members with Xbox All Access (in supported countries) won’t be able to participate in this plan.
