New PlayStation app features

In addition to these PlayStation 5 console updates, we’re gradually rolling out new features for the PlayStation app globally later this month, on iOS and Android:

  • Start a PlayStation Remote Play session via the PlayStation app – PlayStation App users will be able to launch a PlayStation Remote Play session directly from PlayStation App on iOS and Android devices. To get started, make sure the PlayStation app is linked to your PlayStation5 console and your console is in rest mode. Next, select the “Play with PlayStation Remote Play” icon on a PlayStation App game hub, and the PlayStation Remote Play app will automatically launch the game. To enjoy this feature, make sure PlayStation App and PlayStation App Remote Play are both installed on your mobile device or tablet.
  • Request a share screen – Similar to the PlayStation 5 feature, PlayStation app users will be able to ask another party member playing on PlayStation 5 to start a screen sharing session and then watch their friend’s game from within the app. This makes it even easier for you to stay in touch with your friends when you’re on the go.
