Curious if after installing the "Xbox (beta)" application, for GamePass PC, does anyone else get an entirely black screen after signing in?
The app works, until you sign in, then just black application window every time...
FYI. YMMV. For GamePass PC users..

In order to successfully log into the Xbox (beta) app, and not get a black app screen after going through the sign-in, you need to go and log into the Xbox Console Companion app first. Doing so will give you a Windows 10 notification saying you are signed into Xbox Live, and from there you can go launch the Xbox (beta) app, sign in, and not end up on the black app screen after. This was what I discovered worked for me.

Tried DNS setting change on my router, after one guy commented that helped his issue with the beta app, but that didn't make a difference for me.

That said, you still have to change your Windows 10 APPS default storage location setting... if you do not want your games installing to your OS (C:) drive. Which is dumb - hopefully they fix that and let you pick location on the fly during installs.

Has anyone actually used GPU yet on PC? How is it? Is it worth it for $18?
I've been playing Slay the Spire on PC through GPU. Can't say it's worth it for $18, but waiting on that Y540 before I play games from Game Pass Ultimate that needs a good Graphics Processing Unit.

I'm in Quebec and my xbox live subscription ends in november. Paying 15$ until november is not a good deal. And I dont want to pay 180$ to get it until 2022, who know what xbox live will be then...What would be my best option ?
Do nothing.
If you don't want to pay for GOLD membership, then your wallet is safe.

Your options aren't just "do nothing or buy three years' worth" - you can buy any amount of live *up* to 3 years' worth. Only want it for a year? Then just buy a 1 year live sub, add it to your current sub, and pay your $16.99, then you're good till Nov 2020.

I took advantage of the offer yesterday and now have GamePass Ultimate until May 2020. I didn't realize I could add more XboxLive before hand to extend it even further (I leapt before I looked). Is there anyway I could buy additional Xbox Live Gold now and get it extended to May 2022?

So for the people who signed up for $1 before extending, you can go to the website and cancel the game pass ultimate on the spot. They will refund your dollar. Just make sure to actually pick the option to cancel and not the one to turn off auto renew. Then add as much gold as you want and buy the game pass for $1 again and it will turn it all into ultimate. Tested this today for a buddy who paid the $1 already before knowing he can get it all.

How does this work if I have Xbox Live Gold and am currently on that console Game Pass 3 months for $1 promo they had a little while back? I have Gold for a 2 years but only like 1 or 2 months of console Game Pass remaining. Do I get 2 years of Game Pass Ultimate, or does it just upgrade my 1 or 2 months of console Game Pass to Game Pass Ultimate?

DO NOT DO THIS. I stupidly followed this advice while having a pretty good extension already (a couple months into next year), and I lost ALL my Gold/gamepass/whatever. omg.

Waiting to talk to MS support now to hopefully fix this blunder

edit: also didn't see a $1 option, just the $16.99 for a month. which is still a good deal, but in contrast to what this poster wrote (not calling them out, just saying it didn't work for me. the above anger was from my own stupidity at following advice without checking or even thinking)

edit2: an hour and so later and i have my ultimate game pass back, but i had to pay $16.99. the poster i'm replying to must have gotten lucky, or i must have strayed from the formula in some way. YMMV

Hey guys 3 questions :
  • I live in Quebec, so instead of the 1$ deal, do I pay $16.99 for the same deal? If so, I'm not going to whine for 16$ over 3 years.
  • As a dad, my son is the one who is going to benefits it the most, but sometime I would like to play with him on my PC with Play Anywhere compatible games (Eg: Ark Survival Evolved). Can I use the same subscription on my PC?
  • If I subscribe to it with my account and log onto our Xbox One. Does everyone can access the Game Pass Ultimate feature on the Xbox without the need of logging into my account?
Thanks for helping!

They will combine the 2 so if you have 2 years of Gold remaining and 2 months of Game Pass you will get 2 years and 2 months of Game Pass Ultimate. I'd suggest topping that up with some more Gold to max it as i had 1 year of Gold, 1.5 years of Game and now have about 35 months after tossing in another 3 month before taking advantage of this promo....Fantastic deal!

Got exactly 3 years. Good deal. Probably will force many into Microsoft's next console.
