The company believes that the features can help increase household use, as well as prevent piracy. It also expects more households to have more Quest units in the next few years, and that’s why the app division will allow a primary account holder to share their purchases across three units in the future. The company also says it will evaluate whether to adjust the number of permitted devices and secondary accounts as it receives feedback from its user community.
However, when the app is distributed next month, primary accounts can only turn on app on one headset, even though they can log on to multiple devices at once. Furthermore, secondary accounts cannot share apps with other accounts, even if they were purchases on the current Quest. Please note that the only way a headquarters main account can be changed is through factory reset.
The company allows developers to opt out of app sharing at the moment, but all new Rift or Quest apps sent to the Oculus platform should have the feature from February 1
