Microsoft tests family plan for sharing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate benefits



Microsoft is starting to test an Xbox Game Pass family plan that will allow subscribers to share their benefits with other people. A preview of this Xbox Game Pass family plan is available in Colombia and Ireland today, and testers will be able to add up to four people to their subscription as long as they’re in the same country. The plan is expected to offer several benefits which include the usual Game Pass games every month and other benefits such as unique access to content even when sharing a single Pass.

“Starting today in Colombia and Ireland, Xbox Insiders can begin to preview a plan that allows multiple people to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits,” explains Tyler Mittleider, a senior technical program manager at Microsoft. “This makes it even easier to play the best Game Pass games with friends and family across console, PC, and cloud by enabling you to add up to four people to your subscription, all with their own unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content, and benefits.”

If you reside in Columbia or Ireland, you can sign up for the preview and try it out yourself. To start off, you need to first purchase the Xbox Game Pass Insider Preview. Testers in Ireland have to pay €21.99 (roughly Rs 1,782) for this family plan. Once you get the subscription, you can head to the Subscriptions page on your Xbox console, PC, or cloud and check the validity and number of people you can share this plan with. You can even add people who aren’t signed up for the Insider Preview program. But those who have Xbox All Access cannot participate in the preview.

The Game Pass family plan is also expected to be slightly more expensive (almost double) than the average Ultimate membership. Microsoft claims that the Insider Preview will convert the remaining time on your membership (existing) to the time in the new family plan,” based upon the monetary value of the old membership.” Meaning a full month of Game Pass Ultimate will be converted to 18 days worth of family plan.

Game Pass Ultimate for 30 days costs $10.43 (about Rs. 826) in Columbia. With the same amount, Xbox Insiders can now purchase 18 months’ worth of Xbox family plan and share all benefits with friends — making it a valuable asset. The company also notes that invited group members must be signed in to their Microsoft accounts and that members of Xbox All Access won’t be able to participate in the preview test.
