2 Consoles one Xbox Live account
« on: 01:34 AM - 12/31/20 »
This may be a redundant problem / post, but cant seem to find the right answer to my question. I have my console (Xbox One X) with the main account on it, it is also set as the "Home Xbox" and my daughters console ( Xbox One S). We have different GamerTags, but for some reason, when she signs in or vise versa it logs the other out. It says "You're already playing on 'whatever console was playing first' " Mind you we are playing two entirely different games. Is this how having different users under one account works?

If the only way this can be resolved is for my daughter to get her own Live account, is there a way for her to get her game saves to transfer to that new account?

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated!!

It sounds like you have 2 accounts, but, only a single Live account, is that right?

Her saved games should be saved onto the console regardless so she'll have them. Time for a big girl account!

Log out off both consoles. Log into her Xbox with your main acc and set the console to your "Home Xbox", then log into your Xbox with her acc and do the same. Then go to settings xbox settings on both consoles and make sure that the Xbox automaticly logs into your acc on your xbox and her on her xbox. This way you only need 1 live subscription and you both share all games. Search up Xbox game sharing on YT if u have trouble
