The application PS Remote Play, which allows remote Internet play, received an update on Android and iOS, which allows connection to the PS5. The novelty comes a few weeks before the launch of the new Sony console, but already sets the stage for the device’s debut on the market on November 12.
What’s new in PS Remote Play
The update was made available on Google Play and the App Store, and includes other news besides compatibility with the PS5.
- Change in screen design
- Button configuration for PS4 or PS5 via Remote Play
- Compatibility with Android 7.0 or higher
- Compatibility with iOS 12.1 or higher
Remember that PS Remote Play is also compatible with controls, in this case DualShock 4 or DualSense, for PS4 and PS5, respectively. If the user prefers, he can play directly with the virtual buttons on the mobile or tablet screen.
In addition to a high-speed Internet connection, the user also needs to have a PSN account and, of course, one of the compatible consoles to use Remote Play.
The technology differs greatly from applications like Google Stadia or Microsoft’s xCloud. Here there is no streaming of games from a data cloud, but directly from the user’s console, without having to use the TV or be in the same room as the video game.
The Google Play page has also been updated with the news, mentioning PS5 in its description. The page also describes that the devices verified with the application are Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 4.
To access the news, just update the application on Android or iOS.
