PS4 Remote Play App
PS4 Remote Play App is one of the really cool features that came along with the “next-gen” consoles. To make this remote play App work, you’ll need a PlayStation 4 console, a DualShock 3 or 4 controller and a Sony Xperia device. Having the means to attach your phone to your controller can also make the experience a lot more enjoyable but isn’t required.
Once you have all that, simply download the app and run it. The app provides access to your PS4 so that you don’t even need the TV on or for it to be connected at all. Streaming is done via local Wi-Fi. Internet-based streaming is possible but won’t be practical in most cases. This approach can add input lag as well as cap the frames per second achievable. This won’t be an issue with many games but can really dampen the experience with some games, so some trial and error will definitely be required.
The app will only work with a Sony Xperia-branded smartphone or tablet. This is a shame in the sense that this isn’t a technical limitation as far as we’re aware. Sony may have done it to increase Xperia sales among PS4 owners. That’s certainly understandable to a degree, but it’s in contrast with the marketing message for the PS4 that’s been in place as far back as its E3 introduction. That issue aside, this is a great app that will let you enjoy games in bed and can really come in handy when someone else wants the TV.
