    On a related subject, I have Game Pass Ultimate. So, that means my family has access to play all these games on console, but only I have access to the game pass ultimate games on PC. For someone else to play these games on PC, we have to purchase an additional Game Pass for PC for $10 more a month. Sure seams like it costs a lot more for a family to have Game Pass on PC, doesn't make since!

      As per Game Pass Ultimate FAQ:

      Standard Xbox home sharing policies apply for both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. If you have an Ultimate subscription and have designated your home Xbox, you'll automatically share your subscription with any profile signed in on that console.

      You can only designate one Xbox as a Home Xbox. I did some more searching, it does not apply to additional accounts on your PC, your family member would have use your profile that is tied to your Microsoft Account.
