Make Beat Saber have app sharing
Since Oculus has purchase beat games that now makes Beat Saber a first party title. If oculus encourages developers to go onto app sharing they should lead by example, especially since beat saber is one of the only titles that would benefit from having that sperate score. I think the community would really like to hear that Beat Saber will get app sharing, even if it is down the line the confirmation would be nice. Beat Saber already doesn't have Cross-Buy, it would be nice to at least implement app sharing.
My SO and I just bought an Oculus and were really excited to get into it. Beat Saber was a big draw for us to get it. We created different profiles and then discovered Beat Saber did not share. WOW, this is ridiculous! I wasn't excited about giving Facebook my money to begin with, and now I'm really annoyed by their greed. No way am I buying a second version for the exact same device. We will share on one profile.
Oculus, please fix this!
i have been wanting this.
Can't believe this is still not a thing....
Facebook introduced app sharing and the games like beat saber which are owned by facebook itself they deliberately disable app sharing??
This is not making sense, when facebook introduce such a new feature should the first games which support this not be their own games?

We just purchased a Quest 2 a few weeks ago and purchased about 10 games and
most of the DLC in Beat Saber. My wife created an account and this is how
we found out that she can't play the game without having to purchase it again.
I can tell you that it's not going to happen and we were going to buy a second quest 2 as we are getting a lot of use of the first one. Again, not going to happen anymore due to these restrictions.

This is really a shame - pls consider it for the next update…

How has this not been added as a feature yet? This is ridiculous. If Oculus keeps going in this direction, I’m definitely getting a different VR headset that’s NOT made by oculus in the future

Jesus Christ Facebook, still no App Sharing in Beat Saber?
The more I use the Quest the more frustrating it gets! PCVR/SteamVR is way easier to handle in so many ways. You break developer's apps to then release your own version that's way more restricted - You just buy studios like Beat Games and then just... leave these glaring issues open.
As usual a lazy monopolistic tech giant.

I have already bought this game twice since it isn't cross-buy compatible .
I would like my kids to be able to play the game with their friend without me having to add them has my friend on my account.
This sucks, being able to access on multiple accounts on the same device should be a must!
New Oculus owner, very angry, considering a second device but if this is how they handle their in-brand titles, I’m second guessing the Oculus platform.
Same prob here, i'm not going to pay twice or 3 time for my kid and wife :(
Yes why the **** we can't share beat saber ??? My kid and wive have to play on my account... There is no reason for this... The price is high, we should be able to share at less on the same Oculus for familly use... :(

I spent the money to buy a second oculus for my family and now I find out I CANNOT SHARE BEAT SABER?!?!?!? I want return the second one now 😡😡😡 Facebook owns Beat Saber so this is a money grab imo!!!
LMAO. It doesn't have app sharing? Yet another feature that Facebook can't get their own subsidiaries to support, alongside cloud saves. Your platform team should be emabarassed that you can't use it as a first party title to demonstrate adoption of your own features.

Equally disappointed and a bit angry at what appears to be a greed play and a horrible user experience decision by Beat Saber’s leadership team. I have purchased the game twice already (PC and Quest 2). No way in h3ll I’m going to purchase multiple copies for a single device. Pure nonsense.
I signed up for uservoice just for this request. With a few music packs, this is easily the most expensive game on our Quest, and the reason I enabled app sharing to start with!

Just set up my app sharing just for this. Truly disappointed especially because it is shared on other platforms. I should not have to buy three copies of this so my family can all play.
I set up app sharing precisely because of Beat Saber. I was super disappointed to see that only a few apps appear under the Shared section and Beat Saber was not among them. I bought BS for PC, now I bought it for Quest but I will certainly not rebuy it again for every person in my household who wants to play.
Oculus, this must be fixed asap! Thank you!
I love the app sharing and it is definitely the way to go. I just spent ages working out how to create a second account and setup app sharing only to discover the one app I actually wanted to have a separate account for I can't have. Please please please can you get Beat Saber to app share.
It REALLY sucks that my granddaughter can beat, me, but because she has to play under her Mothers account and her mother kicks butt, her scores are no where to be seen. I'm sure if she could play under her OWN account that she would be proud to see her hi score, remembering she kick this ole mans butt...
Hopefully they will fix the issue soon. It's already a HUGE money maker, no need to gouge us. She had 5 in the family. She can't afford 5 copies, and shouldn't have to. I'm the one that buys the two headset, two programs, etc... Isn't that enough?
It be nice if they let us know it WILL happen, so we don't remain ticked off and fuming every time we play and think of it.
They need to also allow the playing on our own music. We shouldn't have to be limited, forced to pay for limited music packs or pay twice for songs we already own through iTunes, Amazon, or others. Maybe they need to become a music reseller or resell for others and get the profit that way. Prolly be larger in the long run. Hey, if Real VR Fishing can do it, Beat Saber should be able to as well.
