Meta/Oculus Developers need to create a true Family Sharing platform that would allow a parent or family member to purchase a game or app one time. Then be able to push it to the rest of the family across multiple devices. ie More than one headset.
I have 2 kids and each has their own Quest 2. I shouldn't have to purchase the same game/app twice in order for them both to play it on their headsets. Having a family share plan would make it fair and easy to load purchases across all the families' headsets, allowing for a better multiplayer experience.
This concept is nothing new... Other competitors in the industry have already been doing this for years. It is only right that Meta/Oculus follows suit.
I'm also wondering what happened. We have two devices with the same admin account, and turned on app sharing on one device. We've used it this way since we got the devices at Christmas, but now on Beat Saber and Walkabout mini golf, it is telling us we can't use the app at the same time on two devices? What gives? Why was this functionality granted and taken away? We probably wouldn't have bought these devices at all if sharing across devices wasn't possible. Will this be fixed soon?
Latest update for email support:
This is Vitor from Oculus Support and I will be handling your ticket on behalf of my colleague.
Thank you for your patience thus far.
I truly understand your feelings, however, app sharing is meant to work as owning a physical copy of a game that can only be accessed by one user at a time. That being said, the apps can be shared from the primary to secondary accounts in one device. Playing them at the same time in two different devices will not work.
I understand that it may have worked before, but this was the way app sharing was meant to work and was fixed in the latest update.
Currently, the only way to play together is if each account owns the app and is logged in a different device.
In time -near of the last Cristmass -When I paid two headsets, there was information in the official oculuss site, that you can use appshare between headsets. If that has been changed, i like to refund my headsets and all the about 15 games I have been purchased. I think that is resonable. How I can do that? Oculuss staff, please answer me.
