Microsoft has just announced two pretty big benefits in terms of Xbox One functionality and features:
If the Xbox Live Gold subscriber in your house purchases and downloads a digital game, it will be available to all users of that console, no matter if they are signed into their account or not. Effectively anyone can play it on the console.
Also, if the purchaser of the game goes to a friend’s house and signs in, then his or her digital games collection will also be available on that console to play (and with the new smart downloading feature the Xbox One has this will be very useful!).
We recently highlighted some features of Xbox Live/the Xbox One that would only be available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. This included things like DVR functionality, Skype and SmartMatch (“smarter” multiplayer game matching).
Well now it has been revealed that these benefits will extend to all users of a Xbox One console provided at least one of them is a Live Gold subscriber. Effectively the Gold subscriber can grant access to the Gold features to all other users in his or her home.
Additionally, when a Gold subscriber goes to a friend’s place and uses their Xbox One console, their Gold benefits will temporarily follow them, enabling everyone to access the Gold features for that gaming session.
Good stuff Microsoft, keep it coming!Tags: benefits, features, gold, subscriber, xbox, xbox live
