Xbox Game Pass Glitch

Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass is a hugely profitable venture that allows players to enjoy a library of games for a low monthly fee. But the company's services aren't without their flaws. For instance, some users have been experiencing a glitch in which the games they've downloaded from Game Pass don't show up on their consoles. This is apparently caused by the download not finishing. According to various reports, simply quitting the game and re-launching the Xbox Game Pass app has solved this issue for many people.

This isn't the first time that a Game Pass glitch has hit the service. Back in February, a number of players reported that third-party non-Game Pass titles showed up as Game Pass and Cloud Gaming enabled in their library. A Microsoft representative told Eurogamer that this was a bug and an update was rolled out to fix the problem.

Another common problem with Game Pass is that users might not be able to play their games after their subscription has expired. This can be caused by a number of factors such as a server outage or a software bug. To fix this problem, users need to check if their subscription is active. This can be done by launching the Xbox app and clicking on the profile tab. If their subscription has expired, they need to renew it. If they're unable to do that, they need to follow the troubleshooting steps below.
