Xbox Game Pass on PC
You would think that this “How to use Xbox Game Pass on PC” guide would be as simple as telling you to head to the Xbox app and then click Xbox Game Pass, but no, it’s actually much more difficult.
How to use Xbox Game Pass on PC
- Go to the Microsoft Store app – Instead of heading to the Xbox PC app, you’ll want to go to the Microsoft Store. This can be done by searching for “Microsoft Store” via the Start Menu search function. (Again, avoid “Xbox” and just go direct to the Microsoft Store here.)
- Search for “Xbox Game Pass” – Once you’ve loaded up the Microsoft Store, use the search function located at the top-right of the app window to search for “Xbox Game Pass.” This will (finally) show an advertisement for the Xbox Game Pass, but there’s still no mention of PC support.
- Click “Learn More” – Look to the bottom of the ad and click “Learn More.”
- Subscribe to Xbox Game Pass – Here you’ll now be able to subscribe to the Xbox Game Pass, which will be applied to your email address, working across both Xbox One and PC.
Now you’ve finally managed to get Xbox Game Pass on PC. Time to load up on supported games! Follow the guide below to get started.
