Several other platforms like Steam, PlayStation, etc. offer family sharing for multiple users in the same household. The same game can’t be played at the same time across multiple accounts or devices, but can be shared within a household in the same way that physical media works.
Yep , ive been asking for this for a long time. It makes no sense. Especially when you consider I bought the quest to be used by the family and in a game like superhot you have no support for each user to track their own progress in the game.
Also I have a rift and I just got my wife a rift S for Xmas but why does she have to re-buy all the games? Steam Family Sharing would be a god-send here.

Husband and wife with four kids, purchased two Quests for Christmas. Echoing the disappointment when I discovered there is no support for family sharing or multiple profiles. Changing accounts requires a factory reset and wipe of the unit which is unacceptable from a user standpoint. I'm completely amazed by the tech. All in all, this product could have been a 10/10 like an iPhone but instead I have to give it an 8/10 for these missing basic requirements.
Product Managers have to realize that if you want adoption beyond technophile's (of which I am one) you have to prioritize the needs of families. I seriously hope that the monetization plan does not include families purchasing multiple copies of the same game. I give Oculus the benefit of the doubt and hope to hear something soon about this request in the product roadmap.
I don't understand what this means

PLEASE OCULUS! I bought another quest for a family member, but now she's also going to have to rebuy all the games :(. We'd probably buy more quests if family sharing was a thing.
Wow. I purchased an Oculus for my middle daughter as an Xmas gift and was just about two get more.
Reading this - I’m sticking with just the one Oculus. Glad I read this.
Agree!! Very disappointed there is no family sharing. Bought two Quests for xmas for my boys, but now thinking about returning one. ...or both : ^ (

Very happy I found this post before buying a second Quest.

If you have multiple headsets registered at same address and financials, they SHOULD be able to share purchased content.

I’ve been a devoted customer since DK1 please help us out and add this feature so we can share vr with our family’s. Thank you.

My husband and I got two Quests so we could play together , and take turns playing with our daughter. I'm disabled and VR could allow me to do and play with my family in a way I can't otherwise.. But I'm sad we bought
2 not knowing we also need multiple game copies
This is ridiculous. I guess I won’t be buying the other two oculus for my family for Christmas.
Aaron Stainback commented
Please enable this feature, I have 4 children and was about to buy 3 more quests but not until there is a family sharing.
Yes! on Console and PC games you do nto have to buy a game again for another member of the family to use it ... this is really stupid!

Family sharing not unlike Apple appstore. Some applications would require it to be worth while. For instance, the touted group play in Arizona Sunshine. Amongst family, this is akin to scrabble or walkietalkie apps with siblings on iPhone; I can see outside family having to purchase but family? The prices are already high, VR is already a self centered experience, and a family plan would help adoption and foster more use, versatile family app/fuctionality titles, etc. Make it so!

I really think that this is disappointing. I already bought a second rifts to teach my students digital vr arts and play multiplayer games with my partner. I believe this Must be something they are setting up. My partner needs persuading to play he's never going to buy a whole second set of apps. He will never let me spend all the money I spend on art apps and games a second time.
Do you think it would be possible to have a gundam or a mech type game? I think it would be doable.

C'mon... it's impossible for me to buy 4 copies of same game for each of my family members in my house hold.
I will hold my purchases until family sharing happens.

My wife really wants to buy 5 for the family for us to play together. Paying an additional 50 to 150$ per game depending gets a little pricey. 400$ oculus quest vs $450 per complete ps4 plus vr system now (that's sale price of vr and console together) we'll make up the difference in price via games. I understand the quest is supposed to be better, but after investing in games, maybe impracticable for us

I just bought three Oculus Quest for my family of six... are you telling me that I have to buy the same game THREE times every time we want to experience it as a family? Who does this in this day and age? Why would you penalize families?
