How does Xbox Live sharing Work?

Topic.

I got my used Xbox from Craiglis and I've been using my friends Live Account.

Can I use my old Gamertag and share his subscription with mine?

If your console is designated as your friend's home console then you can use your own account and get his gold benefits. If he has another xbox one console set as his home console then you can't use his gold benefits.

You should be able to so long as his account is on your XB1

...and that console is set to be his home console.

Like ElPollo mentioned, it doesn't matter how many consoles you have your gamertag on. The only one that shares the gold benefits is the home console.

Does it matter if I set his account as the home console? Or would I lose any benefits?

You won't be able to play any of your digital games offline.

Edit: Whoops, sorry, misread the initial post and didn't see that this is a scenario where you have two accounts on the console. If your friend sets your console as his primary account, then you would get gold subscriptions privileges for free.

The only downside is that since your console is now the "primary console" for your friend, he won't be able to play his games offline since the console he has in his home is no longer set as his primary. No downside for you though, assuming you also have the used console set as your primary.
