Xbox unveils a new feature that will change the way Game Pass works
Account sharing has been a popular trend over the past decade. It’s become common to share accounts with friends and family since Netflix first took off in early 2010. Account sharing is so common that it’s hard to believe anyone doesn’t know how to give (or receive) passwords.
However, it seems like we are entering a new era. Netflix is cracking down on password sharing, and now Xbox seems to have a legitimate way of doing it. We are asking for more money to allow more people to share one account. The Xbox Game Pass Family Plan was rumoured earlier in the year.
Watch our interview with Xbox in the industry, where we discuss the future of the console following the Series X/Series S.
It’s currently only available to Xbox Insiders from Ireland and Colombia. But, we are certain it will soon be available to all. The rumour was first reported earlier in the year by Phil Spencer, but it was already hinted at long ago by Phil Spencer. So it appears that it has been in development for some time.
It’s $25 per month, and members can access Game Pass Ultimate (Game Pass on Xbox, Cloud, and PC – along with Xbox Live Gold, EA Play).
Reddit users already make fun of the name “Family Plan” and speculate on how Xbox will determine if family members are sharing the account.
