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.
Come on Oculus this basic stuff.
The product and platform is great but if you want VR to become main stream families and friends need to be able to play
Then the desire is manufactured to have your own instead of sharing.

How has this not been implemented yet???

Just got our first Quest for Christmas and we have been amazed by it and so was looking to see if this was possible as was going to buy one for my son next month. But really don't want to buy all the same games again. Family sharing is a must for me if we are going to get an additional quest.
I too am disappointed with not being able to share games purchased on one account across two headsets. We bought two Quest headsets for Christmas hoping our kids could play the games together and that we could play with them but we can't do this without paying twice for the games. There should be some sort of family sharing for headsets registered on the same account. Please consider this as we would be much more likely to buy more games.
Glad I started reading this thread. I have one Quest and was sooo close to buying a 2nd so my boys could play together. Guess I should have gone with something else.

Yeah, this is compounded by the fact that you have to use your facebook account for the Oculus. I think the best solution would be to make an extra account specifically for oculus purchases and no social media activity.
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.

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!
