Xbox One allows up to 10 friends to join in on a game session simultaneously. This means that you can easily gameshare with your friends by dividing the controller and keyboard between multiple players. In this article, we will show you how to gameshare on Xbox One.

Setting up Xbox One

Xbox One can be gameshared with up to 8 other people. To get started, first make sure that everyone in your group has an Xbox One and an active Xbox Live account. Then follow these steps:

1. On your Xbox One, go to Settings > System > Sharing.

2. Under “Xbox One game sharing,” select the people you want to share your game with.

3. If you want to keep track of who is playing which game, you can turn on “GameHistory” and “Share screenshots.”

4. When everyone is ready, start up the game you want to share and hit the button on your controller to start sharing.

Playing Games with Other People

If you’re a gamer, chances are you love playing your games with other people. Xbox One allows you to gameshare, which means you can share your gaming experiences with friends and family. Here’s how to do it.

To gameshare on Xbox One, first make sure you have an active gaming session going. Next, open the controller settings by pressing the Xbox button on your controller, then selecting Settings (or using the guide on the right side of the home screen). Under “Xbox Live,” select “Games Sharing.”

Now, choose who you want to gameshare with: Your Friends List, Your Party Members List, or Everyone in Your Region. If you want to share your game with specific friends or family members, simply add their names to your list. Once everyone is in agreement, press the “Share” button and start playing!

You can always change who you’re sharing your game with at any time by pressing the “Share” button again and selecting a different option. Keep in mind that if someone else is currently using your controller, they’ll have to let go before you can join in. You can also use voice commands to start or join a gaming session without having to use the controller.

Troubleshooting Xbox One Gamesharing

If you’re having trouble gamesharing on your Xbox One, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue. Here are some tips to help you get started.

1. Make sure your friends are on the same network as you are. If they’re not, you’ll need to connect them before gamesharing will work.
2. Try restarting both your Xbox One and your friend’s console if they’re not sharing properly.
3. Make sure your friend has the latest version of the Xbox One gamesharing app downloaded and installed.
4. Check that your firewall is turned off on your computer and your router if you’re using an internet connection through either device.
5. Verify that the cables connecting your devices are properly connected and working properly.


If you’re one of the many people who love playing games online with friends, but hate having to split the screen or use a third party app to do so, then you need to check out Xbox One’s new features. With Xbox One’s new game sharing capabilities, you can now easily share your gaming experience with friends without any hassles. Simply put on the same game, hit the “Share Game” button on your controller, and voila — your friend is now streaming your game live in HD! You can also use this feature to watch other people play games together on different platforms (PC/Mac/Linux), which is great if you want to join in on a multiplayer session without having to leave your comfortable chair.
