    Only have 1 device linked to this ps4. It's always on the same network, it's always the same phone. Every time I open this app I have to fully sign in again. Why doesn't this work on the media player? Why do I have to sign in to my account every time? Every single time? Why isn't the ps4 home button mapped to be usable from your tv remote?

  2. Ian Ojeda-avatar

    app It's a nice app, my friend is currently without a microphone so he can use the text to speech function on this app to talk to the rest of the group. I only give it 4 stars because I miss the time when all the PS apps were in one single app, not like now that theres like 5 of them

    spiele It's nice, when it works! So with my experience the app is great! I wish that it had a function where you could use your phone as a microphone instead of having to text if you didn't want to. Though the texting is good enough if it'll allow the text to be read aloud. I have days where I won't have a problem at all and then I'll have other days where I can't even use it because it won't even try to play my text. It would be definitely a 5 / 5 if it worked all the time!

    pc Im trying to access second screen on my acer chromebook when i go to sign in into my psn it tells me to download a google setting app ,something like that and i have proceeded to update that app and when i go back on second screen it tells me to update it over and over again.Overall the app is good just im having this problem that i have explained.Does anyone know what i can do to get the app up and running? thanks, bethany.

  5. Bruh Moment-avatar

    games this app is only compatable with certain games, and chances are, you dont have them. if you can broadcast your gameplay to whoever is watching your stream, then why cant we just do the same with our phones and tablets that are probably in the same building? if xbox can do it, sony sure as hell can and i believe it. Sony, step up your game, this app is so bad that you shouldnt download it at all until they fix it.

  6. Sam Anderson-avatar

    verwenden This application has niche uses and doesn't really fit my needs. If you're read comments or using second screen to view compatible game content then it seems fine. If you're looking to use this as a remote you will be disappointed, it is NOT compatible with multimedia applications (YouTube/Netflix) as the PS5 is due soon I doubt it ever will be. If you want a PlayStation remote, buy one or buy a second controller. Don't waste your time with this application.

    apk What to do with it. You cant see your content of ps4 on your mobile nor you can do anything.Its just a app created to waste the time.Atleast you kust be able to see your downolad while ps4 is in rest mode if you are downloading huge games so that you can see if the game has been downloaded and you can swith off the ps4 from mobile.

  8. J C-avatar

    windows 10 Hi I am not sure how to use this app as everytime I open it to add my ps4 and before I could input the numerical code the app shuts down by itself and restarts so I am unable to connect at all to my ps4 Just wondering if anyone else had a similar problem? If so how do you fix it?? Thanks!

  9. imagoodbug-avatar

    deutsch Also- only works for primary user! Just didn't want to use the controller to type in browser. Not only did I have to research 4 different PS4 apps to find the one that would let me use a keyboard... And not only did the typing not work for the browser... But additionally, I added my tablet using MY profile, and the app ONLY functions as the primary user. So I can't use this on the menu of any other profile. No switch user. You log out, app "loses connection." What a waste of time and storage.

  10. Andrew Black-avatar

    einrichten It's pretty lame how you need to have both your PS4 and phone over Wi-Fi for it to work. I don't want to have my latency suffer just to use an app that doesn't seem all that great anyway, so I'll just keep my PS4 wired to my router and uninstall this app.

  11. Joel Wozniak-avatar

    Doesn't work on YouTube. Will work on your PS4 until you try and navigate YouTube, then it just stops working. I'll never understand why developers release apps without testing the most basic functions.

  12. The Broccoli-avatar

    Flat out didn't work. Tried to update the app and my ps4, tried to restart both.. no luck. Thanks, Sony. Got this app so I could try and get around your terrible gatekeeping when it comes to Bluetooth devices. Hope your apple-esque business practices bankrupt you financially, instead of morally. Kiss my hairy ass.

  13. Keno Haevin-avatar

    BREAKING NEWS: Downloaded just to leave this review. Don't bother with this garbage. Remote play is a PS supported app that does exactly what this claims to. It projects the PS screen on to your device and gives a virtual controller, you're welcome.

  14. Raymond Waldon-avatar

    I would give it some stars if it actually worked. The only thing this app is capable of is putting the ps4 into rest mode. None of the 2nd screen controls work whatsoever. Navigation? Nope. Options button? Nope. Back button? Nope. Ps button? Nope. Utterly useless.

    Does not even do fully what it said it did "When prompted to enter text you can do so here" grate now I don't have to take so long to respond to chats on the system. [Now the problem] app Perseids to not pick up any prompts outside of messages or home menu the only place I did not need it to

  16. A Google user-avatar

    You can't go very far from PS4 . otherwise it's like screen mirror.basically dose what it say but disconnects very easily.(I've have very strong internet so it's the app not the internet connection

  17. Juny Khan-avatar

    This app honestly sucks. I am able to connect to my PS4 but it dosent allow a second screen to be shown. And it also dosent allow me to use the party chat feature. Very big let down.

  18. Ashton Bell-avatar

    Got this because both of my ds4 controllers stopped charging simultaneously one being 1 and a half newer. Got me into netflix but once a show started the only way to resume control is to back out to the home screen. Aka no pausing or changing shows etc. Please playstation make better remotes or at least make this work.

  19. C Kusman-avatar

    Doesn't even work 90% of the time. Keeps saying "No PS4 found" even though it was able to connect the first time.

  20. Zack G-avatar

    "You must connect to wifi network to use this feature" the entire point of this app is to access .y ps4 from "away from home" so why am I required to be on the same wifi network as my console?!?!?! Fix immediately!! FYI this is technically false advertising.

  21. LadyRed Gaming-avatar

    Wrost app ever I've tried several times to put the numbers in to get the app to work and it kept saying numbers incorrect when is the exact same numbers I put in looking at my TV I wouldn't recommend this app because it really sucks if I could I would give it a -5 Stars because it is that bad

  22. Lefa Nketsi-avatar

    Ps4 second screen works well navigating the Ps4 screen but selecting items does not it actually freezes I will like the ability to enter password without it being displayed on the screen like Netflix password the small numbers screen is visible as you move cursor from number to number

  23. Keith Rogers-avatar

    Does not work. Will not find my ps4 and has no manual connection entry option. This is still true over a year later. Sony is not supporting this app.

  24. Toothpasf-avatar

    This app is okay but I don't cacth myself using it often if you are in another room while in a party I guess it's useful or if you are playing a prank on your friend but most of the time I don't use it

  25. Lewis-avatar

    Literally all you can do with the app is navigate on the home screen, you cannot do anything else once you enter an application apart from return to the home screen. No second screen function either, this app is almost completely useless.

    Disappointing. Despite the fact that the name of the app is Second Screen, the second Screen feature won't work at all. I connected the remote play and that's working well, but I don't like my buttons being on my screen. I just want to use my phone as a second screen, what's going on PlayStation? I'm loyal to you and don't want to have to change that. Let's please at least have our apps capable of the functions of which they are named. You got this ,I believe in you. love you 😘!

  27. Josh Hernandez-avatar

    Cannot read aloud text bug. The messages you write will not be translated to audio for other party members. Apparently this has been a bug for awhile and still hasn't been fixed. The app is useless for me with this bug.

  28. Lavonna Bush-avatar

    when i first got this app it wont let me log in as me on the app. Then I tried to connect then it kicked me from the app but its a good app but make little bet better next time.

  29. Scrumpit Boy-avatar

    Okay so this app was a very good way for me to type up stuff and it was much faster than using the screen prompt with the controller, but all of a sudden it doesn't want to work stop showing the message 'PS4 not found' even though I have it on the same network and have been using it for the longest time. anyway you could fix this or help me with this problem I've literally tried everything from restarting my phone to getting a new network, please help!!!!

  30. Mya Fer-avatar

    Why do you have to connect to a wi-fi network and do it like that? I honestly wish there was another option to continue with your mobile network for its much easier to use for some users.

    First of all I had to reset my password even though I was using the CORRECT one. Then the app has ultra limited features. Kinda expected more

  32. Alessio C.-avatar

    It keeps telling me that a connection to the server could not be established (error 18.cdf something) - can't find anything to troubleshoot it online

  33. Sparx-avatar

    Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. Never even got it to connect to the PlayStation. Both in the same room, on the same wifi, just simply doesn't work.

  34. jared cox-avatar

    Says I need an 8 digit code to be able to connect... but I've tried at least 10 times already and I damn know I ain't blind and I know my numbers... Says my code is incorrect and won't let me connect. So far so not good:')

    Awsome works great, and dang Playstation is always making good stuff, it really helps for game play, makes it very cool.

  36. Elite gaming-avatar

    Why are we only able to turn on/off the ps4 from rest mode. I doubt Sony is going to work on this app anymore. The Xbox app seems to be alot better

  37. Paul Tulao-avatar

    The second screen experience sucks, because when you navigate to the second screen you do not see the game screen on there

  38. Snapcut 505-avatar

    Useless. The only thing the app can do is navigate the main menu but from there nothing. Cannot control Netflix, Hulu, Disney plus, etc. Absolutely useless

    Literally the most useless app ever. The whole point is syncing TO your ps4, if you're using your phones hotspot to get wireless to play online your screwed, gg for a trash app with 0 usefulness

  40. Jose Torres-avatar

    Make the screen visable on my phone when the PlayStation 4 controller connects .....and my girlfriend's phone can't connect to it. Both phones do not connect two the same PlayStation. Place a sensitivity option in settings. And a key pad that we can place the buttons where ever we are most comfortable with for a better game experience. Thank you love BigTexas80. Not just 2 up to how many PlayStation 4 controllers you can connect to it. .......

  41. Gabriel Farfan-avatar

    Bad. Broke one game while I was in the middle of a game, made the controller unresponsive, couldn't connect to the internet. Logged out on its own

  42. Jared Bostic-avatar

    It's telling me it can't connect to playstation servers and to update the app but im already on the latest version. Tried to uninstall and then reinstall and still have the same error. Please fix!

  43. Cream Cheese-avatar

    hi sony your app is annoying because when ever im using it, it keeps saying update the following app. Well i've deleted both of them than did what it said and the app said updated but when i download the app and try to log into my account it says must update the following app

  44. Lucian Rose-avatar

    Make bluetooth for this instead of WiFi, it's pretty much in all phones, not all people have wifi and if I use hotspot it does not allow me to connect because my phone is using data and the ps4 is on my phone's hotspot which is apparently a different network according to your app. completely useless to me.

  45. Forest Zane-avatar

    Really all I want is for this screen to mirror my TV. That's it. Don't disconnect my controller. Don't take up 70% of the screen with a visual controller. Just mirror what's on my TV. I don't even understand why this isn't a feature. It's actually easier to implement than the garbage they already have in place.

  46. Stephen Wilson-avatar

    Idk why people complain about this. It does what it says it does. This ISNT REMOTE PLAY! its primary purpose is to act as a second screen for supported apps and as a keyboard/menu navigation method

    Keeps saying that there's not enough time yet it take half the time to even load. Why do none of the Sony PS4 apps work!

  48. John McKee-avatar

    Galaxy Note 10+ has never been able to connect ("within the time limit").

  49. Wild1EyedJack-avatar

    Essentially only works on the home screen, not a substitute for an actual remote.

  50. Jordan Tish-avatar

    The only reason it even gets 2,is because it works in the menu. Other than that, the controller function is absolutely worthless. It doesn't work inside any other application on the PS4. Sony, you gotta step your game up. Microsoft is leagues ahead of you when it comes to functionality.

  51. Xeltrix-avatar

    When I try to use it on playroom it's just dark or a blank screen. VERY disappointed....

  52. tomgreat1990-avatar

    Being able to change broadcast message via the app would be a fantastic addition. Would make me use this app a lot more!!

  53. EmojiHead YT-avatar

    This really cool! You can control your PlayStation from your phone, but one flaw is you can't control youtube and stuff.

  54. Felipe Spinolo-avatar

    Can't be used inside of apps. So you can use it to open an app, and then you have to pick up the controller to do anything from there. I don't understand what the intended use case is for this app.

  55. Eternal 85-avatar

    When i heard that you can talk to your friends on a party on a phone it sounded awesome i thought this was next gen party chat, but no it needs the playstation to be on and you need it to connect to the wi_fi that the playstation is connected to which is stupid it would have been better if you didn't have the playstation to be on and not to care about what router you're currently connected with, it sounded like a cool idea but it was in a way that i did not want it to be.

  56. Zoey Wolf-avatar

    It won't find my ps4. I have both the app and the ps4 on the same wifi network and logged in to the same psn account but it just keeps saying no ps4 found. Is the app broke or something? If it is, it needs to be fixed, if it isn't, I need to know why it won't find my ps4 even though I am doing everything right.

    This is horrible I didn't know how to log in and then once I got the code it told me I took to long and shut it down and once I got in I couldn't mirror my phone which is what u wanted to do in the first place.

  58. Theflyingmel-avatar

    I have my phone connected to the same network as my PS4 but the app doesn't find it.

  59. ArtRobot-avatar

    Misleading app name suggesting screen mirroring functionality not even available on the remote play app. Is it too much to ask for the ability to use my phone as a wireless display (second screen) for my PS4 while using my DS4 (with full 6axis support), without having to create multiple user accounts?

  60. Alex Kouris-avatar

    Then is god damn misleading, i m furious! I thought at least to see the home screen of ps4 because i needed to download some big files and in the loc with the wifi i didnt have a monitor so i downloaded this app only to realize that its SECOND CONTROLLER (ish..) NOT SECOND SCREEN

  61. Rosa Gonzalez-avatar

    Can't connect to it at all it keeps telling me that no WiFi connection's at all but I had it on but and showed up on the screen TV. But nothing seems to work What's wrong? Please fix this thank you.

  62. may hope-avatar

    App is useless download it for the party text to speech when I play with friends because I'm mute I can't talk it works for a few minutes then I get message can't be read aloud completely garbage don't use you are better off downloading line and make a chat room ther I did and had no problems unlike this app!

  63. Ashley D.-avatar

    My cat broke my controllers (water), so I just needed a way to navigate youtube/netflix until I can get a new one. This app only works on the home screen for me, the buttons are useless in apps. So unless you stream/want your chats on your phone it's useless.

  64. The Accountant-avatar

    I like the idea, they should just make it where the mobile phone doesn't need wifi and can use their data. Please make this possible?

  65. JuanMa Valiño-avatar

    Same as someone else posted: I can connect to it, but the second screen doesn't work. It keeps saying "This screen is currently not in use." What's the point of this app if the second screen doesn't work?

  66. Miguel Cardona-avatar

    It's useless. Whenever I connect it, it says cannot use second screen. Please fix this ASAP

  67. J C-avatar

    Not working at all. It used to work half of the time. Restarted the playstation, restarted this app, restarted my phone, more than once. It is terrible, I do not reccomend it.

  72. Joshua Duncan-avatar

    This is a garbage app it does not work. I used it for a long time with no problems then after 1 update on the PlayStation 4 I have been unable to connect for over 2 years. I did a search and there is no support for fixing the issue except for the on-screen instructions which everyone seems to repost for some reason. I did see one person change their wireless isolation and they were able to get it to work. There is a reason why this only has a 2.6 rating!!! Booo for Sony!!! 5M downloads???

  73. yoganandl-avatar

    Poor App. Offers extremely basic features and doesn't work with YouTube that built-in with PS4. Doesn't have the need to use this App when it offer ver basic features of navigating the PS4 items. I would have expected it as an alternate to the PS4 controller

  74. Jerome Minster-avatar

    Read text aloud error is a constant issue. Fix it. A multimillion dollar company should have no problem ensuring their products have no issues. Oh, wait, that'd be too easy.

  75. Amare Yawson-avatar

    Horrible it is not what you think it is full of viruses and it only acts as another controller that doesn't even work

    PlayStation verification code space wasnt able to be entered on the app, might have been due to the Moto Z² Force's age or abuse though.

    Just a terrible app, worthless. It's sad because this could've been great. They need to read these comments and give their customers what they want. Major let down PlayStation. My next console will be an Xbox, the PS3 has better features than my PS4. Very disappointed.

  81. Anana Wiggins-avatar

    App sucks! Y make an app for the PlayStation console JUST to turn around and tell ppl they need to own a specific mobile device for it to work? That's dumb! The fact that ppl all over the world buy/use PlayStation is not enough for Sony. They expect you to purchase a Sony phone/Vita JUST to be able to utilize functions on the PS4 that were ALREADY built in to the previous consoles! Sony is dumb for this and IF they cared about the ppl who spend millions on their products they'd fix this NOW!

  82. Justin Ratley-avatar

    I really like this App, but I feel like it could be so much more useful if the help section was a little more in-depth. I currently have a Galaxy Note 8 and the controller functions all work great. But every time I try to switch to the 2nd screen it says "this screen is not currently being used" which isn't right because I have the system on, and a game currently running... please if I'm just doing something wrong, somebody please let me know. And if not... Playstation... ya'll need to tighten up

  83. Neil King-avatar

    For those who haven't read what this app is supposed to do, it works great. Some users seem to think it should allow you to play PS4 games on your mobile screen. No. What it does do is allow games which support a second screen to display things like maps, help and instructions on your phone while playing. It also lets you navigate the menus and type into text boxes using your touch screen rather than a joypad. Very useful.

    Dumb as hell, you have to be connected to wifi can't use wired. Should make the app register user account activity instead of network

    When I get on the app and connect with my PS4 the gameplay is delayed and it's hard to do anything. Not because it's mobile but because it's delayed.

  87. Max Grossman-avatar

    I've noticed that this application doesn't work when I'm trying to control Netflix on my PlayStation.

    The app paired instantly with my PS4. I like the functionality and it works great as it's intended. You can control the PS4 from your phone in some ways. For example, you can power it on from rest mode and navigate menus and type from your phone keyboard to the PS4. I just don't understand why this can't be integrated into the main Playstation App like before. It doesn't make sense to have 2 separate apps when it can be an all in one, more convenient app.

    Does exactly what you'd expect. It's good for replacing the PS4 on screen keyboard and allows me to quickly write a paragraph rather than the clunky PS4 keyboard. No you can't use it as a controller or as a second screen to play games on. All it needs is to be connected to the same network as your PS4. Only problem I ever have is occasionally after opening and closing the app is says no PS4 found but it's easily fixed by clearing the app drawer on my phone.

    So many negative reviews by folks who think Second Screen means "play games on your phone." Lol no. Second Screen means "when another (typically small) screened device such as a smartphone, tablet, portable games console, etc., provides a view, interface or even game mode into a console game that is unique from what is currently being displayed on the TV." It's not the same as Remote Play. It's not Sony's fault if you're a gamer who doesn't understand this concept. It's not false advertising.

    When I'm in a HBO GO app second screen not functioning..its completely dead..none of controls are active..

    This used to work fine and was excellent for sharing images to Twitter. It no longer works and simply times out when trying to connect. This issue appears to be associated with the most recent update of either the app or the PS4 operating system. Either way it is now obsolete as what's the point of a second screen app that cannot connect?

    Cannot use if your ps4 is on a hardwire connection even tho both devices are on the same network.

    This app is ok, but not really practical. First of all, reconnecting the app to the ps4 isnt a very fast process. It'll stop working when the ps4 goes into rest mode, even though it says I can connect to it. Also, I cant find any practical use for controlling the ps4 from your phone rather than it being an expirimental feature. Look, if you're serious about gaming and have high expectations about this app, then dont download it cause this aint it cheif. Imma give em a point for the keyboard, though.

    Would give a higher rating because I'm sure the app itself works fine, but some of us use portable hotspot on our phones for our games consoles internet connection. So my ps4 is connected to my phone, but in a different way. Would be awesome if you guys at PS Mobile could figure a way of making this work for people like me as I lose a lot of additional functionality due to this problem, it's the same for any app that works the same way, such as Fallout Pip-Boy. If there's no way around this then so be it but if it's possible then it's definitely something I'd like to see.

    I just really wish that it actually worked to use a "second screen" but it doesn't, yeah I can still control my ps4 when it's on the home screen but other than that no, can you please make this app do what it is supposed to, because when I go to the second screen tab in the app it says "this screen is currently not in use" but I want to use it, it's also false to name the app "PS4 Second Screen", I'm sorry
