Have user profiles so families can share a Quest and we can demo it to guests. Most games don't have save slots so if you had user profiles in Home we could have multiple saves.
There should also be the option of playing as a guest. My son loves playing my Quest 2 but he's not getting a Facebook account anytime soon.
I've been sharing games but it's always stuff with different save slots or something like beatsaber... Even so I long to add a guest profile or even just another profile in general so my family can play on their own setup. I get that these companies want to make more money by forcing you to make another account and buy the games. We are sharing headsets anyway... Just add the option for at least one additional profile. It's not like we have space for two people to play vr at the same time in the same space.
God I want this. I hate my xbox one for this very thing.
I have 2 quest... 1 and a 2... I have a 10 y/o son who likes to play... guess what, sometimes he would like to play a multiplayer game with his dad but he can't because I can't create a separate account for him to have his own games. So now I have 2 quest... but can really only use one to it's full potential unless I sell the other one to a 3p. This is kinda dirty.
Add multiple users to one headset. I have a quest one and quest 2 but i cant share the experience with my family so they can have a personalized experience

Oculus / Facebook - you are going to kill your platform just as it was starting to pick up steam. I have two quest's in my household. Mine and one for my 3 boys to share. We want to play multiplayer games together. In this day and age with how every other company treats software there should be no reason why I can't login with one account or a shared account on both pieces of hardware and share the games I purchased for my devices. ****, Apple lets me do family share with their games and it's always worked out fantastic for my family - easy and painless. Wake up Facebook. I won't invest further in your hardware if this is your future path...

How this is not a thing already is crazy, this is extremely needed for families, especially younger kids that play on your device.
I just do not want this. I don't want to have to create and manage multiple accounts. I like the fact that my headset is my headset and now some shared device with various accounts and profiles and all that convoluted ****. I would rather they just add a better way to make sure we can have more than once save for all our games/apps.

Yesss! Me and my husband play on the same headset. I would love my own profile and game save options.
Mark Sahlgreen commented
Not just for save slots though, but so I can say, for example, play a multiplayer game with my daughter on another headset
Xbox, playstation and Nintendo tendo switch all have family sharing/game sharing. It's a case of "oh it's too difficult". How can all the other companies do it then? Classic Zucc just wanting to maximise profits

Oculus come on guys, it should be easy to do this
I just want to add my name to the list of people that really want this feature added soon. I bought the device under the impression that I could share this device with my family and not have to have them share 1 account.

This is such a basic feature that I don't understand why Oculus hasn't implemented it yet.
It's hilarious that Facebook, who's all about social features, didn't make that a priority. What, family and friends doesn't count as social network? We should be able to have multiple accounts to share the headset with others.

This is a basic thing that the Quest should already have implemented. Ridiculous that it isn't setup already. Fix it.
I bought this headset for my family. I already have my own headset. There should be no reason that my 18y/o sister has the same account as my 50y/o dad
I would like to see multiple people be able to play the same game on one account. This would benefit people with multiple quests. For example, I could have a guest over and we could fight each other in Crred without me having to purchase a new copy. I am also unclear how I could even purchase two copies since I have two quests but only one facebook account.

I'd like to see multiple users both via accounts and profiles. This doesn't have to be intrusive - it could be an optional feature to add profiles to your account that will only show up once you've added them.
I see "profiles" as being within the same account but affecting settings like saves, visible games, age rating, shop enabled/disabled etc. - I would also be keen to add a guest profile for friends that are just trying VR out.
Multiple users via accounts is also important e.g. looking to the future if you have a family of 6 and everyone has a headset they should be able to pick up any headset and log in with their account (just like I can log into any PC with my Steam account currently). There are numerous reasons they may want this - their own headset may have ran out of battery, be misplaced, accidentally left at another house or even broken with another purchase on it's way (currently they'd have to wait for it to be delivered or factory reset someone else in the families headset before they could use their own account).
Of course family sharing factors into this but there's other separate ideas on that so I won't go into it here.
The solution isn't to add frikin' multiple users, requiring us to then set up and have to sign into multiple accounts and switch between them whenever we used the headset and so on, which also likely means adding some indication of this into the menu display too and making things even more unnecessarily cluttered.
The solution is just to add a proper save function into the frkin' games, at maybe a universal option to Save Progress whenever you bring up the menu or exit a game.
But you don't fix an issue by creating some convoluted additional **** to then have to deal with just to kinda circumvent it. I don't want to have to create an account for myself and then for my mum and then for my friends, creating new avatars and like every time and so on. That's not a frkin' solution.
I don't want any of this convoluted crap where I'm having to set up and choose between multiple user profiles like I see on so many devices these days.
But, I do like the idea of there being some kind of save slots so I can show my friends games I've already played from the beginning again for them specifically, in a way that's simple and useful.
So, user profiles/accounts, no, but multiple saves as some kind of system thing (for those times when a game stupidly doesn't have it), yes.

I feel like changing to Oculus logins and not making multi user profiles based on facebook logins is crazy. I could pass it to my wife, she use her facebook to have her own save slots (in the cloud) and she can pick up where she left off and not effect my saves. It makes so much since to work multi profiles, and cloud saving into the Facebook login. Also there should be a demo mode or no login mode where I can put someone new into vr for the first time and it not save any game progress. Over the past year about 6 people have tried my headset and bought their own because of it. I have had party's where I pass the headset around and let people experience real vr for their first time.
