Once you know-how, you can share your VR games across two Oculus Quest 2 headsets, saving you some money by not having to buy duplicate copies of the same game. Better yet, you can share your library with other Oculus (sorry, Meta) devices, if you have an old device lying around you’d like to give to a friend or family member.
It’s worth noting that some games can’t be shared across multiple headsets because Meta requires that developers opt-in to the family sharing feature. Beat Games’ popular rhythm game Beat Saber is a notable example of this, but it is more of an exception. A videogame can only be shared from the primary account to other accounts, not vice versa.
A final consideration before sharing your games across any of the best VR headsets is that you will need to leave your account information on both devices. With that in mind, make sure you adequately protect your login information with a strong passcode or security pattern and only share your games with people you trust.
Without further ado, here’s how to share VR games across two Oculus Quest 2 headsets:
- Check that the account you wish to share games from is the headset’s primary account.
- If another account is currently set up as the primary account, you’ll need to factory reset the headset and log in with the relevant account
- Open the ‘Settings’ menu and navigate to the ‘Accounts’ tab
- Enable ‘App Sharing’ via the toggle
- Add sub-accounts to the headset
The account holder must have a Facebook account or create one from scratch to create sub-accounts.
