New PS4 update brings Remote Play to all Android devices

Remote Play is already available on iOS, but now Android players will be able to stream games to their phone too. Now, the company has announced that this is no longer the case.

Sony smartphones may have gone down in popularity due to the lack of innovation over the past years, but one of the highlight features of Xperia phones has been PS4 Remote Play.

Almost seven months after debuting on iOS, billions of Android users will finally be able to stream "select" PS4 games to their mobile devices, though an update to Android 10 is required if anyone is looking to play with a DualShock 4 wireless controller.

For iPhone or iPad users, meanwhile, the Remote Play App has been updated so they can now display the controller at all times and lock the screen orientation.

Sony has rolled out its latest Playstation 4 update, and as it teased earlier, it includes an improved Party function.

When 7.00 arrives later this week, you'll be able to increase the number of players in your party from 8 to 16 - ideal if you're taking party in bigger online multiplayer games such as the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That likely means the public preview test is ...

That's something a lot of us can get excited about, especially because iOS users have had Remote Play since last March.

The scheme had previously been limited to Android devices in the Sony Xperia range. "All you need to do is update to Android 10, iOS 13, iPadOS, or macOS Catalina (releasing in October) to use this feature", says the official PlayStation blog post.

Firstly, within the Party feature, users should experience better network connectivity and audio quality - and you can play with twice as many friends or community members.
