EXCLUSIVE to Xbox, Gameshare is one of their featured systems.
The Microsoft-owned console wanted to release a feature that sets them apart from their nearest competitors, PlayStation.
What is Gameshare on Xbox?
Gameshare is a fun way of sharing those games with your friends that you may digitally own on Xbox.
It is easy to share games with friends when they’re physical copies but it’s 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 families, for those to access and play.
That means if you can’t the latest title but your friend has it, they’re able to share it with you with ease.
Note that Gameshare only works between Xbox One and Series S/X users and can only be used by one friend at a time.
How to Gameshare on Xbox
It isn’t as simple as sharing your library and your friends can immediately play.
There are a few steps to follow to get sharing.
1. Obtain friends account details
Make sure you have your friends log in for Xbox Live before you attempt to set up Gameshare.
2. Turn on Xbox and log in
Turn on your Xbox and log in to your personal Xbox Live account.
3. Add new
Click the Xbox symbol on the controller click the ‘Add new’ section.
4. Add friends details
Either add in your friend’s Xbox Live account details yourself or let them do it themselves if they are with you for added security.
5. Follow additional on-screen information
Accept the terms and conditions that pop up on the privacy notice and set the preferences that fit your friend’s account.
6. Make your friends account ‘home’
Once their account has been added to your Xbox, press the Xbox button again and return to the home screen.
Head to your friend’s account and sign in.
Press the Xbox button again to open the system menu and click on the setting.
Click on personalization and select ‘My Home Xbox’.
Choose the ‘make this my home Xbox’ which will finally give your friend access to your library, regardless of whether you are signed in or not.
