How did you set it up so you can share apps with multiple headsets?

What are the steps to do this?

Hey there, @Jtfreeman12! We understand that you'd like more information on app sharing. We can certainly provide more information on this! Let's dive into things!

 

App sharing is only possible on a single device at a time, with multiple accounts. More information on this can be found here. If you have multiple devices, you can switch which one has app sharing enabled. We also have a great article on having multiple accounts as well, which may be useful.

 

We hope this information helps. May you have a good day and take care!

On the Quest 2 under Settings there's Accounts towards the bottom. Clicking that, it should show your user profile as Admin, and buttons to enable app sharing and adding more accounts.

 

If anyone does this from today on, I'm very curious to hear if it actually works. I'm under the impression Quest 2's are broken on Meta's servers (or Meta is planned obsolescing them) and when I try to do App Share it fails, and adding another account says something went wrong.

Hello there, @Espionage724. App sharing is a great way to share games and apps with your friends and family within your headset. We know you're eager to get this set up. Not to worry; we would love to see if we can help get this sorted for you. We wanted to ask you a few questions to ensure that we have the best information to move forward.

 

  1. Are you receiving any kind of error message when the app share fails?
  2. Is your headset software up-to-date? (You can always make sure your headset software is up-to-date by following the link we've shared here.)
  3. Can you tell us if you have ever been able to use the app sharing function?

We appreciate you working with us toward finding a solution for this app sharing issue. Your time and patience are appreciated, and we hope to hear from you soon.

2. Headset is up-to-date (v64), but this has been happening to me since somewhere in version 40 or 50

3. I was able to use App Sharing on this headset (128 GB) in the past, and also a 64 GB headset

I do not like the answer since it requires me paying for the same apps twice but I appreciate an answer.
