If both me and my friend are sharing each others libraries, can I play a game from his library while he is playing one from mine?


With Steam Family Sharing, you're sharing your entire library at once, meaning that if someone is playing a game from your library, nobody else can access any game from that same library. If you're playing a game from your friend's library, your friend is free to play any games from your library, as your library is not in use while playing your friend's game.

    Did you test this? From my experience the sharing was blocked from my friend when I was playing -any- steam game. – Inferno IV Aug 6 '19 at 15:07

    I've had the same experience as @InfernoIV. – Renan Aug 6 '19 at 15:07
  • Yes, this has always worked for me. – Wrigglenite Aug 6 '19 at 15:17
