PS4 Remote Play app now available for Xperia Z3 devices
Sony has been updating its Android gaming software suite lately. The PlayStation App has received a couple of new features and Sony’s PS4 Remote Play service, which allows users to stream PS4 games wirelessly to their smartphone or tablet, has arrived on the Google Play store with support for a small number of devices.
PS4 owners can now remotely play their PlayStation 4 games through their Xperia Z3 or Xperia Z3 Compact phones, as well as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Other Xperia devices are not officially supported yet, but you could always try out this hack. A PlayStation 4 running the latest 2.0 software version is also required for remote gaming, but that should have already arrived by now. Just bring your DualShock controller along for the ride and you are good to go.
Sony’s PlayStation App, which allows users to browse the PlayStation Store remotely, message friends, and manage their profile, has also been updated. The home screen has received a visual overhaul and now supports a tablet layout for larger devices. Other players that you may know now appear in your friends list as suggestions for new people to play with and other players can now be found through a search for their real names.
