Allowing for more fun with friends and/or family playing games together. The new plan in question is currently starting with a small testing pool, with Microsoft stating that enrollment is limited. Enrollment will however remain open while the offer is available. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn’t mention how long that will be. There is also one other caveat. Right now the Xbox Game Pass family plan is only available in two countries.

Today, Microsoft announced the launch of a new Xbox Game Pass family package that it is now testing. Even while Microsoft isn’t calling it a family plan by name, it sounds just like one by the sounds of it. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members have the option of sharing their membership with up to four additional persons. At the end of March, Microsoft declared that a family plan was in the works.


  • As an example, the company says that a full month of Ultimate converts to 18 days of the new plan. Which suggests that it’s somewhere in the realm of twice the cost of Ultimate. For subscribers in the US, a full month of Ultimate is $14.99. Conversion is also not available to those who are invited. If those users already have a subscription, they will either have to cancel the plan or wait for it to run out.

  • The Xbox Game Pass family plan is in testing for Insiders in Colombia and Ireland. Like we said, things are starting small. Xbox Game Pass Insiders in Colombia and Ireland will have the opportunity to enroll in this new preview plan starting from today. For those that are able to gain access, the benefits of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate can be shared with up to four other people. Anyone you share it with doesn’t have to be an Insider. Microsoft does state though that they do have to be in the same country as the subscriber. The new plan also seems to cost more. No specific prices are mentioned. But, Microsoft says that joining the Insider Preview will convert the remaining time of a membership into time on the new plan.
