PS4 Remote Play! Officially Available on ALL Android Devices

What’s up guys Chigz here from Chigz
Tech Reviews. So PS4 remote play is now available to enjoy on all devices. So Sony has finally opened the doors. So this includes any Android smartphone or tablet and iOS devices including iPad and iPhones and of course PC and Mac What is Remote Play? So some of you guys may not know what this is. PS4 Remote Play allows you to remotely play your ps4 and PS 4 pro games on a portable device like a smartphone tablet or even laptop so you can be playing your ps4 on
your main screen and as long as your portable device is connected to the same
broadband network you can switch the gaming to the portable device similar to
how the Nintendo switch works and continue playing anywhere in the house
now for this to work you need to update your ps4 firmware to version 7 which I
have already done so in this video we are going to test out remote play on
multiple devices I have the brand new iPhone 11 Pro max I also have the hawawa
P 30 Pro and those are flagships but we also want to see how it’s going to work
on more budget orientated devices so here is the doogie s90 it’s running a
mediatek cpu so I want to show you guys that it will actually work on any device
not just flagships now we’ve also got the Xiaomi me pad 4 and also the first
generation iPad air so this is the first iPad air it’s not the latest one and
these are the devices I’m going to test out ps4 remote play on now you can also
connect the DualShock 4 via bluetooth to give you a much better experience so
without any further ado let’s get started and we are going to begin with
the iPhone 11 Pro max my PlayStation 4 is on in the background you can see
that’s my screen right there ps4 screen is ready I’ve already
installed ps4 remote play so let’s get it open and all you do is click on start
now you do need to sign in so your usual PlayStation login quickly sign in I’m
going to do that as well okay so that’s signing in as soon as you sign in it
will say searching for ps4 now you do need to make sure that your PlayStation
4 your smartphone is on the exact same
network so this is the first time I’m connecting with my iPhone 11 and there
you go so there’s a remote play now if you do use it in portrait mode this is
how it’s going to look we just back out just to show you in real time
that it works with no lag at all now of course it’s not really practical to play
in this mode so if we flip it around landscape you can see now that the touch
controls still work now I will try loading up a game and my favorite game
right now is UFC 3 I absolutely love that game so let’s just get it loaded up so I could technically be anywhere in
the house right now as long as I stay in the house and I’m connected to the same
Wi-Fi network I can play my ps4 games on the iPhone 11 pro max so I am going to
show you in real time how this plays so my television sound is off there is no
sound on the television right now the sound is actually coming from my smart
phone so I turn it up he missed the biscuit ok so you can see
that it’s working absolutely fine with no lag at all I am going to connect my
PlayStation 4 controller and show you how easy it is to connect as well so if
I put this phone down you pick up your PlayStation 4 controller and what you’re
going to do is press the share button and the PS button at the same time until
you see that light up so here we go one two three there so we are in bluetooth pairing
mode now so grab your iPhone come out of the game go into Bluetooth settings and
what you have to do is connect to your PlayStation 4 controller there you go
Dualshock 4 wireless controller has appeared and i’ve connected to it it
says connected and you can see the light is steady now so we have connected the
DualShock controller now go back into ps4 remote play you’re gonna have to
start it again because it does disconnect ok so I’ve got my game
controller set up the Bluetooth is connected to the iPhone 11 Pro Macs and
you can see it works absolutely fine completely wireless connection there we
go backed up man get bonuses low punch and that is it so that was I phoned
11pro max the next device we’re going to do is Android and we are going to try
the p30 Pro now you can only be connected to one device at a time
connecting to the ps4 and I’ve got the message that I’m connected on the ps4 so
in a moment or two you should see the screen mirrored there we go so the screen is mirrored you can see
it’s working if I turn my volume up and again the volume you’re hearing is
coming directly from the smartphone landscape mode you cannot use the dual
shop for in ps4 remote play because this device does not support it so the p30
pro does not support Dual Shock 4 even though I’m connected it just doesn’t
work so we are going to have to use the touchscreen and we will try the game
play out and then we’ll move on to the next device so here we go so we’re going
to stick with this game you can see if there’s any lag in the background so you can get away with it but you
cannot press r1 and then press a punch at the same time for the specials it
gets a bit tricky so so using the touchscreen to do your special moves is
not going to be easy you can still play the game but controller support is
absolutely needed if you play less complex games you can probably get away
with that on screen touch control now the more experienced younger audience
can probably get away with that touchscreen and do everything on it I’ve
seen my nephew’s do it and I don’t know how they do it but they can play any
game with the touch screen so let me know what you guys think about that
so that’s the p30 pro working absolutely fine so the next device I’ve connected
to is the doogie s90 and unfortunately the DualShock 4 controller is not
compatible with the doogie either so if we just grab the phone you can see that
it works fine I’ll open up the game we just play the same game cuz just
makes things easier for me here we go a in the ocean microphone check one two one two oh nice
kick now here’s a very interesting device
that I want to test so this is the Samsung Galaxy alpha the smartphone
released in 2014 it’s running Android version 5 and there
are no updates this is Android 5 one of the oldest phones that I have still got
and PlayStation 4 remote play we are going to test on this device and if it
works on this device is going to work on more or less any device the DualShock 4
controller is not going to be compatible with this smartphone either quickly go
into the game and show you that ps4 remote play works fine on a 2014 device so you can see that PlayStation 4 remote
play works on an old Samsung Galaxy alpha and you can see it works fine with
actually no lag at all so it means that any phone that you have in your hand is
going to work with remote play you’ll be able to play your PlayStation 4 on it
now the next device we’re going to test is the iPad and as you can see the first
generation iPad air is also connected remotely now unfortunately I could not
connect their DualShock 4 controller to the iPad and let’s try playing ps4 on
the iPad and see how that experience goes you made when you have Margit though you
gotta back up Wow so the next device we are testing
this on is the xiaomi pad for here we go so there you have it guys that was my
video showing you some ps4 remote play in action on a number of different
devices now I have read online if you want to play with the Bluetooth
DualShock 4 controller your Android device must be at least Android version
10 and your iOS device must be at least iOS 13 which explains why the Bluetooth
controller only worked on the new iPhone 11 Pro Macs and not on the other devices
on this desk nevertheless ps4 remote play is now working on all android
smartphones sony has taken an amazing step in the
right direction and this update is the best we have had from sony in a very
long time and I hope you guys found this video useful thank you so much for
watching and I hope you all have a brilliant day I’ll see you guys in the
next one

Does your PS4 have to be on in order to use this feature on the phone? So it has to be in range and be only used in the house.

Yeah Sony finally throws us a bone but they won't let you connect a dual shock unless you're on Android 10 and you can't use your own controller.

Paula Cross · October 10, 2019 at 6:19 pm
