The Oculus Quest headphones will soon support many users, Facebook announced. The functionality will allow Quest owners to assign secondary accounts to their handsets, allowing other people to log in and access content shared by the primary user, while maintaining separate data for retention and performance.
The primary account holder will be able to add three secondary accounts and share apps on one device, although Facebook says you’ll later be able to share purchases on three handsets; the company can also adjust these parameters based on feedback. Applications will be automatically included in the sharing feature, but developers can opt out before February 1
The requirement for a Quest 2 Facebook account is controversial and it is not surprising that nothing changes here – users of secondary accounts will have to log in with their own Facebook account. However, for households that already have multiple Quest users, the features should make life easier.
Facebook says the functionality will come in Quest 2 next month in experimental form, which means you can turn it on with a switch in the settings menu before it’s released for all Quest headphones, including the original model.
