PS4 Remote Play now supported on all Android devices

09 Oct 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

The latest software update (version 7.0) for PlayStation 4 enables Remote Play to stream PS4 games to an Android mobile device at home.

PS4 Remote Play for Android

PS4 Remote Play has for years been reserved for Sony's own Android-based Xperia devices but after Sony launched PS4 Remote Play for iPhone and iPad earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before it would arrive on Android, too. With the release of software version 7.0 for PlayStation this week, Remote Play can now be used to play PS4 games on all smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or higher. At the same time, Sony will make PS4 Remote Play app widely available from the Google Play store.

 PS4 Remote Play

PS4 Remote Play is a streaming system that streams games from the PlayStation 4 console at home to another device on the home network via WiFi. Games are rendered on the actual console so the mobile device does not need to be particularly powerful as it simply receives a continuous video stream. Sony also has a cloud-based game streaming service called PlayStation Now, while Microsoft and Google are planning to launch their cloud game services in the near future. In addition, Sony has tweaked its PS4 Remote Play app for iOS "so you can now display the controller at all times and lock the screen orientation". You can use on-screen buttons on the touchscreen to control games or connect a Sony DualShock 4 controller wirelessly via Bluetooth to Android, iPhone, iPad, and Mac, the company said. This requires Android 10, iOS 13, iPadOS 13 or macOS Catalina. Now bring PS4 Remote Play to Android TV and Apple TV, please!
