"We are always looking for ways to deliver experiences that offer players more choice and value in how they discover and experience games with their community," the company said in a blogpost.

"Starting today in Colombia and Ireland, Xbox Insiders can begin to preview a plan that allows multiple people to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits," it added.

In this plan, the testers will be able to add up to four people to their subscription as long as they are in the same country.

"The people you share your membership with do not have to be Insiders but must reside in the same country as you. Enrolment is limited and will remain open while the offer is available," the company said.

According to Microsoft, before joining, a group member can cancel an existing subscription or wait for it to expire.

If they do not have a Microsoft account, invited friends and family will have to create a new Microsoft account and sign in with it to participate.
