PS4 Remote Play may soon be accessible to all Android devices, courtesy of unofficial port
Several weeks ago, we mentioned that the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact gave customers the ability to play PS4 games on the tablet. If you want to try this, you will need a PS4 DualShock controller and it is recommended that you use a controller mount to prop up the tablet using Remote Play.
Previously, a Sony representative told The Verge that they had “no intent to bring remote play to any device other than Xperia.”
But that may soon be changing, unofficially at least. XDA-Developers notes that a forum member was successful in managing to port PS4 Remote Play over to any Android device.
The port is to be installed by flashing the provided ZIP package and installing the provided APK as a normal app plus a few extra steps in between such as wiping the cache and rebooting. The port will work only with devices running Android 4.0 or newer. Additionally, Xperia Z1 owners may have an additional step of changing the build.prop in order to get this up and running. – XDA-Developers
Some members were also successful in trying this trick while others received a message stating “Coming to Google Play soon” when attempting to remote play.
