Earlier this year, multiple sources began claiming that Xbox was planning to roll out a new tier for Game Pass – a family plan tier that would allow up to five users on one subscription. Now just a few months later, it looks like Microsoft is pushing ahead with this.
In a small, limited-region test, Microsoft has begun allowing Xbox Insiders to obtain a new version of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that allows you to invite up to four other Microsoft Accounts to join your ‘family' and use the subscription. Each account will get access to the full Xbox Game Pass library and its other benefits.
Currently, the test is only taking place in Colombia and Ireland. Insiders can still invite non-insiders to their family plan, but you will have to be in the same country.
We unfortunately don't know the exact price of the Game Pass family plan yet, but we do know that Microsoft values one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as 18 days of the family subscription. With that in mind, we could be looking at over £30 a month for the family plan.

KitGuru Says: This is now in public testing, which means the Xbox Game Pass family plan should debut properly in the not too distant future. Hopefully someone in the limited test can confirm pricing too. How much would you be willing to pay for a family tier of Xbox Game Pass?
