app sharing purchase prompts

Honored Guest

Whenever there is an update on an apps on my Quest 2- my shared app user (my son) gets a notice to request in order to use it. When I give him permission, I get this notice that I have to buy the app, which I don't. He still gets to use the apps even if I don't purchase additional copies. Why is this happening? It is confusing when I get a prompt saying I have to buy the app when I already own it.

Hey there, @Deneb1180. Thank you for providing your experience with us. The user experience and ability to navigate and use our devices is important. This notification exists because the system is designed to let the guardian know the child account doesn't own the item. The ability to share the app isn't taken into consideration. If you'd like this functionality, I'd recommend posing it on the ideas forum. The developers read the suggestions posted there and the more conversation had on a give topic, the more likely users are to see it added! if you have any other questions or challenges, please let us know!
