How To See Hours Played On Xbox: Can You Check Game Time On Xbox One And Xbox Series X|S?

Wanting to see your hours played on Xbox or checking your Xbox game time is a pretty standard request, especially since you can check your game playtime on PS5.

Finding out how many hours played your Xbox One or Series X|S games is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can see how quickly you've progressed through a game, or how long it took you to unlock all the achievements. On the other, it may make you feel guilty that you spent all that time on your games console.

Now that we've made you aware of the responsibility that comes with this knowledge, we'll tell you whether this is a function that the Xbox offers, and if so, how you can access it.

Given that you can check how long you've been spending on your PS5, it would be quite a shock if Microsoft didn't offer something similar on the Xbox. And sure enough, it is possible to check your game time on both Xbox One and the Xbox Series X|S.

Where this feature has a slight edge over the PlayStation though, is that you can see your time played both for Xbox-enabled games, and for PC games. It is worth noting, however, that not every game has support for this feature, so you may find that some games won't provide this information.
