Oculus begins offering multi-user support and app sharing

Friday 19 February 2021 | 10:14 CET | News
Facebook-owned Oculus said it has begun to offer users the ability to log into multiple accounts and access the headset owner's local apps. In a blog post, the company said the experimental features are initially available only on the Oculus Quest 2 and will eventually be rolled out for all Quest users. The multi-user feature allows primary account owners to add up to three secondary profiles on each headset, each of which will have their own friend lists, game progress, achievements, browser history, privacy settings and more.
