On my Quest I noticed in the store some games has Family Sharing as a feature.  What is this and how does it work ?  Is there a page that describes this feature ?
Oculus Rift S - Oculus Quest 128GB
MSI trident 3 7RB-200UK Intel Core i5-7400 3 Ghz x2
MSI GTX 1050 Ti (4GB) & MSI Aero GTX 1060 OC (6GB) & MSI Aero GTX 1070 OC 8GB

    I think it means the game includes multiple game save slots, or rather profile slots to be more accurate.

    Edit: It could be useful for people to list the games in this thread that have profile slots and save slots. I don't think the feature stipulates which or the number of slots (if this hasn't been done already in another thread).

    I'll start:
    The Room VR:     Profile Slots     3
    Intel 5820K [email protected], Titan X (Maxwell), 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4, ASRock X99 Taichi, Samsung 500Gb 960 Evo M.2, Corsair H100i v2 Cooler, Inateck KTU3FR-4P USB 3 card, Windows 10 Pro v2004 (19042.572)

    You are comparing your 399US$ quest with the 800US$ cosmos (that has very poor inside out tracking) and the vive pro eye that cost nearly 1700US$

    You can still run all the same games that you would have run with the other headset and share you game library like you would have done using steam. You are fully compatible with the other platform that's the beauty of the oculus Quest. 

    And please, don't includes your headphones, cases and all accessories in the investment price, it was your responsability to do some research before buying. The only person you can be angry with is yourself.

    I just think it's horse crap that you cant family share games. If I would've known that I most definitely would NOT have gotten an oculus. That's just down right sorry as crap for a business to do that. LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE has game sharing so why is it so hard for oculus to do the same??

    Using one account I can download all my games on both Quest 2's and we can play both at the same time, my issue and request is local multiplayer!..
    Seems to work with some games that gives you a code to enter a room / server, or use email to log in. but on other games that I've seen should work on redit,(Star Trek & Dead & Buried 2) we can't find a way to join our games..

    They really need to make local coop on same account possible, My youngest son is under 13 and can't have his own account!
    Do to how fun it is to play room scale without cables I actually thought about buying a 3rd Quest 2, so that I can play with both sons.
    But not keen on buying every game we want to play 3 times, especially not when I also have a few of them already on Rift S, and need to buy them a second time on Quest 2.. .

    One of the moderators (nalex66) told me recently:

    They've already retracted that statement, which was made by a support rep who didn't seem to have knowledge of the multi-user plans. They've clarified that it is not against the ToS to use two devices simultaneously on the same account, and again advised that they have an upcoming announcement about their muti-user feature. Unfortunately, there is still no timeline on this plan, nor any details about how it will work.

    Hope this helps about multiple headsets.
