San Francisco: Tech giant Microsoft has started testing a new Xbox Game Pass plan that will allow multiple people, including friends and family, to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits. The company said that a preview of this Xbox Game Pass family plan is now available in Colombia and Ireland. Xbox Gaming Craze Declines, Microsoft Reportedly Expects Decline in Revenue.
“We are always looking for ways to deliver experiences that offer players more choice and value in how they discover and experience games with their community,” the company said in a blogpost.
“Starting today in Colombia and Ireland, Xbox Insiders can begin to preview a plan that allows multiple people to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits,” it added. “The people you share your membership with do not have to be Insiders but must reside in the same country as you. Enrollment is limited and will remain open while the offer is available,” the company said.
In this plan, the testers will be able to add up to four people to their subscription as long as they are in the same country. According to Microsoft, before joining a group, a group member can cancel their existing subscription or wait for it to expire. If they do not have a Microsoft account, invited friends and family will have to create a new Microsoft account and sign in with it to participate. Members with Xbox All Access won’t be able to participate in this preview.
