Create a Shared Mode device profile for Meta Quest for Business

This article is only applicable to admins with relevant permissions.
Shared Mode is not available for devices connected to a third-party device manager.
Shared Mode is a paid add-on for Meta Quest for Business that can be useful for training or demonstration purposes. People have to be 13 years of age or older (subject to applicable legal requirements where you reside) to use a Meta Quest for Business device in Shared Mode.
A Shared Mode device can be used by multiple people who don’t need to log in with either a managed Meta account or Meta Horizon profile. People who are using a Meta Quest device in Shared Mode will only be able to use apps that have been added by an admin to the Shared Mode device or device profile.
Your organization may allow users 13 years or older (subject to applicable legal requirements where you reside) to use devices in Shared Mode. Ensure you choose apps that are appropriate for anyone who may use the device in Shared Mode. In addition, parents or legal guardians of people aged 13 years or older should be provided with parent information about user readiness and health and safety information.
This article covers how to create a Shared Mode device profile to apply to multiple Meta Quest devices. You can also configure devices independently in Shared Mode.
