Pair second headset

My wife and I previously shared one headset with app sharing. We now have 2 Quest 3 headsets. 
how do we share apps between both headsets? Will I lose accumulated data on some games?

also we both want to play some games together such as Golf+. 

Thank you.

Hi @drbob7228 🙂

The account(yours?) who has all purchases on it has to be admin on both headsets, because only the admin can share apps.

Give the first headset - where app sharing is already enabled - to your wife.

If you want to keep the first headset and your wife get the new one, you have to disables app sharing on the old headset and enable it on the new one.

Will I lose accumulated data on some games?

No, nothing changes, you just install your games on a second headset too.

 

......we both want to play some games together such as Golf+

Some games allow you to play multiplayer with shared games, but most requires that each account has it's own copy of the game.

You have to try......

But even if it works...... Golf+ has DLCs and those are never share, means you can't play those courses together.

I actually think that for games with DLCs, it's always better if each account has their own copy of the game... but that's just my opinion.🙂
