After much confusion and slip ups Microsoft have now fully detailed the sharing features for Xbox One Gold members, and the feature is going by the name Home Gold. The big news is that sharing your digital library is back and it sounds very impressive.
If you have an Xbox One Gold account then anyone who has access to your console at home can take advantage of your digital library, can play online and use any entertainment apps. This does not require them to be signed into your account. In fact they can sign into their own account and access these things.
It’s a major change to how the Live Gold currently works, where each account on the console needs a Live account to access online multiplayer or apps.
If you do go to a friend’s house and log in to your account they can also access your games, multiplayer and apps, but the difference between this and the Home console is that you have to stay logged in. Furthermore, if you buy a digital game while logged into your account at your friend’s house, anyone at your home can access that game straight away.
Finally, Xbox Live memberships will carry over from the Xbox 360. It does look like Microsoft went back to the drawing board and really made sure the message was clear this time.
