Sharing games on Xbox One is pretty simple, but you’ll want to share your games first without having to sign in to your Xbox account from the console. To do this, you need to access the Xbox One console where you want to share your games. Press the Xbox button on the controller connected to this Xbox, scroll down on the left-hand menu to ‘sign in ‘, and select ‘Add’. Sign in to your friend’s console from your account.
After adding your friend’s Xbox One to your account, make sure that your account is the account you are signed in to. You can check if this is the case by pressing the Xbox button on the controller again and finding the ‘home’ option from the menu. This will take you back to the home screen. Swipe left until the Xbox player tag is shown, if it’s better than yours, choose your friend player tag and then select ‘sign in’ to sign in to your account.
Now that you’re signed in to your friend’s Xbox One, press the Xbox button on the controller again. Once the menu opens, go to ‘system’, then ‘settings’, and finally ‘personalization’.
In the ‘Personalization’ menu, select ‘My Xbox ‘. This saves your friend’s Xbox One as your account’s default console, allowing Xbox One consoles to access your Xbox One game library – so they can sign in to their accounts and still have access. If you check your friend’s Xbox One games and apps, your own library should be with them ready to install.
Repeat the same steps on your home console to access your friend’s Xbox One game library, but this time by signing in from your friend’s Xbox One.
This method shares not only your Xbox One games but also your Xbox Live Gold membership.
