Sharing apps between two quest 3 headsets

Conrailguy
Honored Guest

So I purchased my first quest 3 headset 512GB, and absolutely love it.  I have also purchased several apps from the meta store and they reside on my headset.  I just recently purchased another headset for my wife so that we can play the games that I purchased together.  My question is, how do I copy those games over to the new headset that my wife is going to use?  Right now I am the admin on my headset and I added her as a user on my headset so that we share until her's comes in.  Do we setup the new headset under my account, or a new account under her name?  Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello @Conrailguy, We are delighted that you absolutely love Quest 3! Kudos for getting a device for your wife as well. Gaming and quality time-check! So let's go over the options that are available for your scenario:

 

1. You can log into the new device with your wife's secondary account you created, and both of you can play the games already purchased and play the same game or different games, but the gameplay will not be together but separate adventures since it will be in offline mode. The main purpose of app sharing is to have multiple accounts on the same device when used online.

 

2. If you wish to play and conquer the games together, your wife will have to have a separate account to be an admin on and be online as well.

 

Welcome to the world of VR gaming! We hope this information helps, and you and your wife have a fantastic time gaming!

Thank you so much for your prompt response to my issue.  It’s nice to know that people like yourself are there to help people like myself (newbie) to help with providing answers to issues like mine.  I plan on getting a couple more headsets for company to use on our newly formed game nights at my home so I’m sure I’ll need you help once again.  But until then, please keep up the good work.
