How to Enable App Sharing on Oculus Quest 2

App Sharing is a feature that allows Quest 2’s manager account to share Oculus Quest games and apps with secondary accounts. Additional users logging in with their Facebook account will have access to games and apps purchased from their manager account if this feature is enabled, but games purchased from these additional accounts will not be shared.

App sharing is an experimental feature and is subject to change or removal at any time. If your Quest doesn’t have multi-user, it may not be active yet.

To enable app sharing on your Quest 2:

Enable multi-user accounts on Quest 2 and add one or more secondary accounts.

Log in to Quest 2 with your administrator account.

If you are not already using an administrator account, switch to it by selecting the user icon from the universal menu.

Choose Settings (gear icon) From the main navigation bar.

Choose account in the settings sidebar.

Accounts in the Oculus Quest 2 Settings sidebar.

that account The option is not available if you have not yet enabled multi-user accounts. If you don’t see your account in the sidebar, make sure you’ve turned on the multi-user account feature.

Choose app sharing Toggle to enable app sharing feature.

The switch is blue when the feature is active. Secondary accounts in Quest 2 can now access apps and games and have their own saves and progress and achievements.

App sharing is enabled on your Oculus Quest 2.

How does app sharing work on Oculus Quest 2?

The app sharing feature allows your Oculus Quest 2’s admin account to share purchased apps with other people on the same headset. The admin account is the account you used to initially set up your Oculus Quest 2, and the multi-user account feature allows you to add secondary accounts.

When app sharing is enabled, secondary accounts can access most manager account apps. Some apps do not support this feature and require an additional purchase, but most apps can be shared using this method.

Can I play multiplayer with Quest 2 app sharing?

Playing multi-user games with the app sharing feature is complicated because after enabling the multi-user account feature, you cannot play the same game on multiple Quest 2 headsets with the same account. In most cases, you can play multiplayer games with this feature, but some apps don’t support it.

To play multiplayer games using the Quest 2 app sharing feature:

Use your manager account to purchase games on your first Oculus Quest 2.

Add a secondary account to your first Oculus Quest 2.

Play games on your first Oculus Quest 2 using a secondary account.

Using another Oculus Quest 2 headset, log in to the admin account on the first Oculus Quest 2.

The account can be the admin of the second headset or added as a secondary account. Since you own the game, it doesn’t matter if it’s secondary or primary.

Download and install the game on the second headset.

Play games on the second headset using the admin account on the first headset.

If the app supports it, you can now play together.

App Sharing Limitations on Oculus Quest 2

Turning on app sharing disables legacy features. Before Oculus introduced multi-user features and app sharing, you could log in to multiple headsets simultaneously with a single account and use the same account to play the same game on both headsets at the same time. For example, you can buy a game on one headset, log in to another headset with the same account, and play the same game on both headsets simultaneously with the same account.

When you turn on app sharing, you can no longer use one account on both headsets to play the same game at the same time. If two people want to play games purchased on both headsets at the same time, they will need to log in with different accounts. This will work for both single player and multiplayer games, but only if you follow the multiplayer game procedure in the previous section.

Also, you can only enable app sharing on one Oculus Quest 2. You can still use your Oculus or Facebook account as a manager account on multiple Quest 2 headsets, but you can only enable app sharing on a single headset.

A final notable limitation is that manager accounts can share apps with secondary accounts, but secondary accounts cannot. So, when a secondary account purchases an app, only the secondary account can use that app.

However, you can log in to one Oculus Quest 2 as a secondary account and then set up another Quest 2 as administrator using the same Oculus or Facebook account. Any games purchased with a secondary account will be available on the new Quest 2, and you can also share games with this headset’s secondary account if you turn on app sharing.

Limitations of App Sharing on Oculus Quest 2

When you enable app sharing, it disables an old feature. Before Oculus introduced the multi-user feature and app sharing, it was possible to log into multiple headsets at once with a single account and play the same game on both headsets, concurrently with the same account. For example, you could buy a game on one headset, log into a different headset with the same account, and play the same game on both headsets with the same account at the same time.

If you enable app sharing, you can no longer use one account on two headsets to play the same game simultaneously. For two people to play a game you have purchased on two headsets simultaneously, they need to log into different accounts. Doing this works for both single-player games and multiplayer games, but only if you follow the multiplayer games’ procedure in the previous section.

Additionally, you can only enable app sharing on a single Oculus Quest 2. You can still use your Oculus or Facebook account as the admin account on multiple Quest 2 headsets, but you can only enable the app sharing feature on a single headset.

The last notable limitation is the admin account can share apps with secondary accounts, but secondary accounts can’t share their apps. So if a secondary account purchases an app, only the secondary account can use that app.

You can, however, log into one Oculus Quest 2 as a secondary account and then use the same Oculus or Facebook account to set up a different Quest 2 as the admin user. Any games you purchased as a secondary account will be available on your new Quest 2, and you can even share them with secondary accounts on that headset if you enable app sharing.
