A lot of subscription services offer family plans. This is because they want to rope in more customers but also know that it might be harder for individuals to pay for their own subscriptions versus a family plan that could convince people to share a subscription at a lower cost.
This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that this is something Microsoft could be considering for its Xbox Game Pass. According to a report from Windows Central, they have learned that Microsoft is apparently planning a family plan for the Xbox Game Pass that would allow users to add family members to their Xbox Game Pass subscription for a lower average price.
From what they have heard from their sources, the Xbox Game Pass family plan is expected to allow access for as many as five players across an entire library and will be cheaper than paying for five separate individual subscriptions. It is also expected to make use of Microsoft’s Family Account system which is already being utilized by Microsoft’s other subscription services like Office 365.
There is no word on how much this new plan could cost exactly or when it will be announced, but for those who see value in family plans, this could be something to look forward to in the near future.
