The first thing you should know is that the family plan is designed for a maximum of 5 people including the “leader” of the group, so you can add up to 4 friends and family to the account. Along with the above, you will have to buy the Game Pass plan «Xbox Game Pass – Insider Preview» in the Microsoft Store, to be part of the insiders.
The people with whom you will share your membership do not have to be Insiders, but they must reside in the same country. Additionally, joining Game Pass – Insider Preview will convert the time remaining on your membership to time on the new plan, based on the monetary value of the previous membership. Notably this conversion is not available for group members, that is, before joining a group, members can either cancel their existing subscription or wait for it to expire. If any member does not have a Microsoft account, they will need to create one and sign in to be active.

Finally, members with “Xbox All Access” will not be able to participate in this preview. In this way, a new concept begins to take shape within Xbox Game Pass, setting the trend in the market to share accounts, not divide them as is the case with Netflix. A great initiative that will soon reach more countries in the world, including Spain, as we told you before.
