I have gold and my partner does not, can we both still play online? They said you would only need the one subscrption but not sure if they got rid of that with the whole drm thing.
Just go into your settings and make sure that it says that xbox one is your home console then if you have gold she can play even without her gold renewed but only on your home console if you go to somoene elses account or buy another xbox for the house your accounts gold won't count for everyone's on the second console.
"With Xbox One everyone in your home has a personalized account, which will enable powerful and personal experiences, and thatís one of the reasons why we wanted to create Home Gold. It means that your account and your gamertag are truly yours. You donít have to share your gamertag for multiplayer gaming with others in your home, or see recommendations for your kidís cartoons next to the recommended first-person shooter for you. It also means that you can introduce new games and enjoy multiplayer with friends while they are at your house. Last but not least, it also means that when you buy one Xbox Live Gold membership, multiple people can enjoy the best benefits of Xbox Live Gold on your Xbox One at no additional charge."
