Microsoft has seen continued success with its game subscription service Xbox Game Pass, serving a rotating library of games for a flat monthly fee. However, even with over 100 titles, Xbox Game Pass isn't for everyone. Whether you picked up the trial or plan to cancel your paid subscription, it's easy to back out.

How to disable auto-renew for Xbox Game Pass
Before canceling Xbox Game Pass, remember you'll lose access to all games via the service. Unless games have been purchased permanently, you'll need to renew your subscription to play them again.
These are the steps to cancel Xbox Game Pass from the web. While an option to cancel via the console was previously available, this has since been removed.
- Navigate to account.microsoft.com/services.
- Sign into your Microsoft account.
Navigate to the Xbox Game Pass subsection of the page.
- Click Manage.
- Choose Change.
- Choose Turn off recurring billing.
- Select Confirm cancellation.
Upon cancelation, your subscription will run until the current paid period concludes. If you choose to purchase an Xbox Game Pass subscription again, search for "Xbox Game Pass" on the Microsoft Store and complete the on-screen steps. With Xbox One automatic cloud saves, your game save data will also be recovered when re-joining the program.
