What is Gameshare on Xbox?

Game sharing is a fun way to share those games with your friends that you may own digitally on Xbox.

It’s easy to share games with friends when they are physical copies, but not so easy to share a digital game.

That’s what Gameshare was invented for.

Gameshare allows players to share their entire digital Xbox library with friends and family for them to access and play.

That means if you can’t put the latest title but your friends have it, they can share it with you easily.

Note that Gameshare only works between Xbox One and Series S/X users, and only one friend can be used at a time.

How to share games on Xbox

It’s not as simple as sharing your library and your friends can play immediately.

There are several steps to follow to receive shares.

1. Get Friend Account Details

Make sure you have friends signed in to Xbox Live before you try to set up Gameshare.

2. Turn on Xbox and sign in

Turn on your Xbox and sign in to your personal Xbox Live account.

3. Add New

Click the Xbox icon on the controller, click the ‘Add New’ section.

4. Add Friend Details

You can manually add your friends’ Xbox Live account details, or let them do it themselves if they’re traveling with you for added security.

5. Monitor additional information on the screen

Accept the terms and conditions that appear on the privacy notice and set the options that work for your friend’s account.

6. Make your friends account ‘home’

Once their account has been added to your Xbox, tap the Xbox button again and return to the home screen.

Go to your friend’s account and log in.

Press the Xbox button again to open the system menu and click settings.

Click personalize and select ‘My Home Xbox’.

Choosing ‘make this my home Xbox’ will eventually give your friends access to your library, regardless of whether you’re signed in or not.
