Second Profile Redownloads Game

I wanted to make an additional meta account for other people in my household to use the headset and each of us save our own separate progress on games. But after making the new profile it's asking me to download the game again. And it's basically taking all the storage. Help!

No, it won't......it ask you to download, so every account has his own progress/scores in the game.

But it does not take any additional space, if the game is already installed on admin account.

Just like @Choleni provided no additional space gets taken up 😁

We are all mad here.

But it takes time as if it is downloading the entire game again

Is this correct?

Yes, that's correct.

It actually downloading all again for the second account.

And when installing it, the headset notice....oops, all data already there and it is just some kind of overwriting and so it won't take more space.

Only my imagination as a "non- expert" of the process🤣

Ours is actually taking up double the space for each game put on other profiles?? 

For games shared from the admin account?

Or do you mean, non shared games that are installed on each account?

It takes only not double space, if the game is already installed and shared from admin account.

 

Hi there, @paula.birr.2024! Additional accounts on your headset is such a fun way to share the VR experience, so we wanted to pop in to help out! First, we definitely recommend you're adding an additional account using the proper steps mentioned here. If the admin account on the headset has App Sharing enabled, per these steps, the additional account should be able to access the admin accounts games. Apps installed by additional Meta accounts won’t take up extra storage space on the device if the admin Meta account already has the app installed. For more information on this, please check out this article and let us know if you're running into any further problems with your additional account's storage!
