by October 7, 2019 0 comments

Sony has finally announced that they would be adding Remote Play for PS4 to android devices this week with the PS4 System Update 7.00. Remote Play basically lets you mirror your PS4 on your handheld device like Tablet or Phone through WiFi. Earlier this feature was only available to owners of Sony’s Xperia phones but became available to iPhone users in March this year. With the PS4 System Update 7.00, it will be available to all Android users running Android 5.0 or above.

To use the Remote Play feature, Android users will have to download the Remote Play app from Play Store and then set it up on their devices. The new update will also have support for DualShock 4 wireless controllers via Bluetooth for Remote Play. But these will only be supported on Android 10, iOS 13, iPadOS 13 or macOS Catalina (releasing in October).

Party Feature Update 

The new update will also be rebuilding the party feature of PS4. It will have new features and services. Sony has increased the maximum number of players in a party from 8 to 16. Furthermore, there will be improvements to the audio quality and network connectivity to improve the audio chatting function of the party. “Within the Party feature, you will experience better network connectivity and audio quality. The improved back-end now improves network connectivity and allows users to overcome connectivity issues previously experienced when connecting with other users”, Sony announced.

In the US, Sony will offer a Chat Transcription service which the users will be able to use through the PS4 Second Screen app on their smartphones. This new feature can convert the party voice chat to text and can also convert text to voice chat. The feature currently only supports US English and will be available in the party tab on the app while connected to a party.
