Can two people play Sea of Thieves simultaneously on PC and Xbox with only one copy of the game?

I own a copy of Sea of Thieves on PC and I am thinking of buying a Xbox One S. I would like to know if its possible to play the game at the same time on both devices without buying another copy?

Sea of Thieves is a 'Xbox Play Anywhere' title so I will be able to download and install the game on the Xbox console without buying it again and it will transfer my character profile and faction progress.

What is not clear on the play anywhere FAQ page is whether the game can be played simultaneously on Xbox and PC so that the second player can log in with there own Xbox account and be able to join my crew for some casual swashbuckling.
