Get all the fun of your PS4 games right on your phone!

Remote Play is an app which will allow you to connect your PS4 controls to your Sony Xperia smartphone or tablet so you can enjoy all the fun right on your phone without having to use a TV or any other device to display the game you’re playing.

Get ready for some serious fun on the go, as you just simply have to connect your Xperia smartphone or tablet to your Wi-Fi network and then connect one of your DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controls. After connecting those two features, you can play your PS4 games on your Xperia screen without the need to be close to your TV or other screen.

Remote Play will change the way you play and will end those battle between your peers as you won’t need to be fighting for the TV because you can enjoy all the fun from your phone. To check if your Sony Xperia is compatible with the app, head out to Sony’s website and look for the Remote Play compatibilities.

We recommend you use your home wi-fi to play, as this app requires high-speed internet. Public Wi-Fi can be be used, however we do not recommend that. Remote Play requires a PlayStation®4 system and a DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller to work and please note that some games may not be fully supported by this app. 

App ChangeLog

  • • You can now connect to a PlayStation 5 console using Remote Play.
  • • Screen designs have been updated.
  • • Button assignments made on PS4 or PS5 can now be used in Remote Play.
  • • Supported version has changed to 7.0 or later.

    The app is good but please add an option to power off the playstation without actually having to start a remote play. I'm requesting this because I had to evacuate from a hurricane, so I'm in a hotel right now and it says the internet is too slow to start a remote play connection and I forgot to turn off my ps at home and now it's in rest mode and I know my power will go out while it's in rest mode, which may damage it. Thanks

    apk In my experience with the app it has been very helpful with time sensitive games while away from the system. Unfortunately the only problem with the app is that the controls are very close together. If there is any way to make the control panel smaller than it would be a lot more efficient for mobility in game. I hope the developers see my review and think about adding a way to make the controls smaller.

    ios I like being able to play my ps4 from my phone pr ipad. However, recently I've been getting a lot the error 88010e0f and when I look the error it says it because of the firewall, but phone don't have one. Another thing is the need to be connected to a Wifi. If the device has its own internet, it should allow to use it instead of needing to connect to wifi.

    android Working great for me on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 with Android 10. DS4 controller worked without issue right from the start. There is a very tiny bit of input lag which is normal giving that it's a streamed image. Gameplay is smooth in 1080p mode which only works if you have a PS4 Pro. I do have a fast network router so ymmv. Not sure what all the complaints are about but my experience has been pretty much flawless.

    ipad Its a good concept but for me the main selling point was to be able to use my controller on the lounge where the Bluetooth doesn't reach well enough so I can control my streaming services (just wanted a remote that worked in a different room to my ps4) my ps4 is in my bedroom and I switch it between bedroom and lounge tv rather than moving the console. If this could literally be used as a controller it would be great.

    1080p After reading lots of comments about the app not working on many phones I decided to try it. I am using Sony Xperia 1 II and I can confirm the app works like a charm. It connects to the PlayStation and the Ps controller works as well with my phone. I tried a game called Nioh 2 which is extremely fast paced action game and it does work. Only problem is cuts part of the screen due to resolution and some WiFi problems which probably due to my router which is quite old. Other than that its playable

    windows 7 Just got the lg stylo 5 a week ago and was super excited to have a phone with enough storage to hold all the apps i wanted witch included remote play , only to find out you have to have android 10 !! I have straight talk and theres no telling when or if we will get android 10 since the stylo 6 just came out , make this android 9 compatible and ill be happy , otherwise i have to use the small touch screen since the joy cons dont show up in wide screen .

    fire tv Really handy for checking quick things on the settings or checking the store, and also as a way to join a party with my friends from my phone, wouldn't recommend playing any serious games with it tho unless you have a controller to use with it, I tried Horizon with this just for fun and got wrecked pretty immediately, works fine for some mini games tho

    linux Ok so last time I used remote play it worked perfectly fine with my dual shock 4. I was on android 10 and I am still on android 10. Now whenever I go into the app it says I can't use my dualshock 4 with remote play because my device isn't supported. Even though it is and works perfectly on games like fortnite.

  10. RayPino-avatar



    lag Got it to work once and it was great but that was it. Really convenient idea but useless if it doesn't and right now it doesn't. Edit: Tried this again a day ago and so far it has worked everytime. Just latency but that's not the apps fault.

    Everytime I go to use after first initial set up 6 months ago I get message that the app needs updated. Have the most current version. Uninstaller reinstalled, updated system to ensure its current and issue still exists. Now I am deleting and done with it. When it did work it was usually delayed and very temperamental, would be prone to issues, even when I had access to my wireless network alone at its highest speed. Cool concept but just to glitch and reliant on internet speeds that are rare.

    If you're having a phone running Android 10, then don't even try to download this app. It simply shows a black screen and that's it. IF YOU HAVE ANDROID 10, THIS APP WILL NOT WORK. In such cases, you'll be better off launching Remote Play on desktop. Reinstalling the app has the same issue. This app used to work fine on Android 9, but not on Android 10. Sony completely killed off the app's functionality in Android 10. For an app in such a sorry state, this deserves a -1000 rating.

  13. retr0g0dfather-avatar



    Still no dual shock support!!!! Running Android 10 and the dual shock 4 is still not supported. My dual shock connects to my device just fine to play Android games and control the interface of the phone but when I launch Remote Play, I get an error that dual shock is not supported as always, even after a uninstall and reinstall.

    Like the idea, but even though my android 10 device the LG Stylo 6 allows me to use the Dualshock 4, the remote play app says my device doesn't support it. What am I supposed to do with these super sensitive touch controls? Sure, I could use it for netflix or something... But I would download an app for that. Effectively, the app does not work and serves virtually zero purpose if a controller cannot be used.

    Ben Kniesner


    Despite what some people say I personally like the idea, if Im just relaxing in bed and want to play video games I can do so. Or If the TV is occupied I can still play my games. No it's not the best for online fast paced games, I mean you can't expect much when your playing a game system built for those types of games on your little phone meant for just streaming and communication. However for games like the last of us or anything like that it works pretty well.

  16. Wezlee and Melissa Saunders-avatar

    Wezlee and Melissa Saunders


    For some games this is entirely fine, but it is tricky to try and play anything too fast paced that requires pressing a lot of buttons at the same time or in quick succession. I was hoping when I got a new phone with Android 10 (upgraded, I didnt go out of my way to get a device with 10) that I would be able to use it with my Dualshock 4 so I can finally play the games I want to play when the TV is in use, but no such luck, 2 stars until the app allows me to use my controller in a future update

    I don't understand. I'm able to use my ds4 on my phone to control literally everything but this app. I start remote Play and it says I can't use ds4 because it doesn't work on my device even though I can clearly use it to control many other programs and even navigate the menus of my phone. Very backwards and makes no sense. 1 star for a Sony app that doesn't even support their own products

  18. Robert Schauss-avatar

    Robert Schauss


    This is not to replace your controller, just so you don't always have to use a control. Like when going into the kitchen to grab some munchies like the stoner we all know we are. This used to be the most worthless app I for some reason kept on my phone but sometime recently revamped it all to actually add to your experience. But use your actual controllers and stop trying to replace it with this. It's not what this is entirely made for.

    The app is very good and I have great times.playing my ps4 form my phone there I. A Fitbit of latency with the dual shock but I give it.4 stars because what is the point of the app I if we can't leave our ps4 behind and play somewhere else like playing on mobile networks that is also a big thing to so if you find a way please change it

  20. Ryan VanAlstine-avatar

    No Dualshock 4 Support for Chrome OS. App downloads and connects to me PS4 perfectly but when I connect my PS4 controller, dualshock 4, to my Pixelbook Go I get the error that this device does not support Dualshock 4. SO I either can't play or I have to use touchscreen controlls to play which does not seem ideal.

  21. Nikhil Patil-avatar

    Nikhil Patil


    Overall good, but biggest drawback is it doesn't work with even low latency expensive android gamepads like the razer kishi. If support is added for android gamepad I would give this 5 stars as everything else looks good as long as you have a good internet connection.

  22. Nicholas Doss-avatar

    Nicholas Doss


    While the app does allow me to stream my PS4 away from home over wifi, it does not support Dualshock 4 on my Oneplus 5. I have Android 10, but because of my phone's model, it is not supported which in turn makes this app unusable to me. Please fix this, Sony. I was very excited to play my games remotely while on the road, but now I cannot do so properly unless you add the needed support for the app on my phone.

  23. A_Nub At_Life-avatar

    A_Nub At_Life


    This app is good if you don't have access to your tv (as in you don't want to move or someone is using it), but it can prove to be laggy if you don't have a stable connection and the gameplay is similar to that of playing in a friend's share play. It only gets 3 stars from me because the UI isn't great (holding touchpad you have to double click which ends up tapping twice and same with l3/r3) and it constantly says controllers aren't supported, when I successfully connect a controller and use it

  24. Erik Donnelly-avatar

    Erik Donnelly


    Finally and it works but only on the wifi that the system is also connected to... I thought I was supposed to be able to access it through internet not only wifi kinda defeats the purpose of being away a!!from console and being able to use it which is what I thought it could do??? I'm lowering to 2 stars unless it is possible to use it without just being in the other room ...then I'll give 5 stars like I thought it deserved

    I have an android 10 device, which allegedly is now supported to use the ds4 with, but it still say my device is not compatible, even though I'm paired to it. Please fix this, it's the only reason I want to use the app, the on screen buttons are garbage.

  26. Cypher.Sonic.Gaming-avatar



    It works fine but I have an issue I have a Xiaomi Pocophone F1 running Android 10. You need Android 10 to use a DS4 but it's saying I can't use my DS4 but I am clearly on Android 10?? Why is this an issue. It works perfectly in every other app but not Remote Play

  27. Oddball Merilix-avatar

    Oddball Merilix


    yeah, big yikes for me. i adore the idea and what you guys were going for, but my expirence with it was just...dreadful. i sat my laptop (it's a chromebook shh..) down next to my playstation after it was registered, and oh my, the glitchiness of my computer screen. it was directly next to it, not to mention i have really good internet,

    I like this app because when you can't play or touch your PlayStation you can secretly play from your phone🤣. It work well it just does not work properly when you don't have good wifi or internet connection. Everything else is perfectly good.

    be nice if i could still use the controller so i could play this in my room on my phone. the console's not that far away from my room anyway and honestly what's the risk of having the controller running? the ps button on it still works while on remote play so why not all of the buttons?

    Will not work with controller: LG thinQ V40. Updated to Android 10, every attempt to use the app says that it does not allow the PS4 controller, while other apps use it just fine. Upsetting that third parties allow your controller, but your app won't.

  31. Me-avatar



    Moto g7, android 10. Phone pairs with dualshock controller but app says it's not compatible. App works fine, just can't use the controller as stated and the on screen controller is a joke. Such a great idea but failure on controller means it is a useless app for many.

  32. Amelia Miller-avatar

    Amelia Miller


    Fine I suppose. I have an LG Stylo 5 with Android 10 and still don't have Dualshock 4 support. Too many games practically require the controller to have any sprt of usability. The app also requires a wifi connection which in the age of 5G this is just silly.

  33. Jon Jones-avatar

    Jon Jones


    Remote plays perfectly with barely noticeable lag. Unfortunately it doesn't recognise my DS4 whether wired or over Bluetooth. The DS4 works perfectly with my Steam Link, so this is obviously Sony being their typical jerk selves. This is exactly why my next console will be an XBox. Update: Got a Kishi. Doesn't work with this, but Steam Link and XBox works fine. I'm completely done with Sony.

  34. Cody Smith-avatar

    Cody Smith


    Great app. Works seamlessly. One thing though... Controls are.... sad. There's no way around it. The controls are very sad. Many people like me are wondering why there is no Dualshock 4 controller support. Still though, good job for pretty much porting the PS4 to mobile 😂 Add in Dualshock 4 support and I almost garuntee that everyonr will change their reviews to 5 stars.

  35. Fr-avatar



    I'm getting my controller fixed so this is the next best thing to buying an offline controller, but it's got issues. The app only connects to consoles you're logged in on so logging in on someone else's system is a no go. Buttons are oddly misplaced so playing games is also out. This basically leaves it's only function to be accessing Netflix, but only the PS button becomes accessible at that point even though they could just remove the already minimized screen on top.

    Fall guys Moments!!


    Guys if you want to use a controller on your acc then do these simple steps:1(have a second acc you can log into on remote play and connect to your ps4)once you are connected your controller should turn off:2(turn on the controller and sign in to your main acc now both accounts should be signed in now all you need to do is click the ps button on your controller and it should go to your main accs screen there you go!! Now you can play with your controller

    Would absolutely be 5 star but currently the game will show up on my phone along with the controller all the buttons work except the walking one. I'm not able to move the character at all. I can use the x,o,□, and triangle buttons perfectly and with accuracy! If I could move then I'd be able to turn the tv off and use this app the way it was meant to be :) Developers please look into this!!

    This is a great tool for browsing, streaming, menu navigating and other apps. Its not intended for very complicated in game, in action controls as far as ive tried. I just had to make this review cause it very much came in handy when I had to drop a steamy poo really bad but didnt wanna leave the tv cause I was watching some edge of the seat anime game trailers in the store.

  39. NJwrestledabearonce-avatar



    Terrible app. It is supposed to work if you have Android 10 installed, which I do and im using a moto stylus, but it still says that my ds4 is not supported on my device, which it is because it works fine on cod mobile. Seems like im not the only ome with this issue. Please fix it.

  40. Noah Jahnsen-avatar

    Noah Jahnsen


    Ok so I would rate this 5 stars but the fact that it won't let me use my mobile data to connect to my PS4 is irritating, That would make this so much I more versatile to the point where it might as well be a literal hand held PS4 App but because I don't have the WiFi Password of very many places, I can't do this, because it refuses to use my unlimited Mobile data. Beyond that is a good way to take your PS4 anywhere provided you have good WiFi at your home... Which I don't but I'm not blaming PS

  41. Aris W-avatar

    Aris W


    Lost 2 stars it just because this app only works by using a wifi connection, whilst play everywhere doesnt mean wifi everywhere, even some cases the mobile phone have an internet/data connections better than wifi. To devlp team, can you please allow connection thru mobile data ? please

  42. Widad Talbi-avatar

    Widad Talbi


    I liked this app all the way to fact that you play any games. It drives me crazy. At first I thought the controller wasn't working so I switched on my Ps4 and put on my tv and it worked perfectly fine. And also the Wi-Fi we have really strong Wi-Fi they always work bit it doesn't when I'm on this app

  43. Katie Robertson-avatar

    Katie Robertson


    Only works on Wifi! So unable to use away from home or remotely. Most public or remote wifi is not sufficient. Unless you have 2nd device to use your mobile Hotspot, this doesn't work as advertised. Am hoping developers move forward to allow usage of mobile phone 4G/5G.

    My android 10 device still can't use dualshock 4 for remote play? Why? Fix this.. please. I'm using a moto g stylus with android 10. Other than this the app is fine but touch screen controlla feel terrible. Maybe allow custom positions and add a way to click in the sticks.

  45. Lance Gordon-avatar

    Lance Gordon


    I really like this app and think it is very handy if you need another controller for whatever reason but the limitations it has I don't really care for like you can't even move around your buttons to fit a holder for playing games on your phone and there's a couple other things but not worth bringing up I understand alot of why they don't give you much freedom with the settings but not being able to relocate the controls is a little strict I may pay the $5 for the other app like this one

  46. Ryan Harris-avatar

    Ryan Harris


    I'm really impressed by this app. Its letting me play ps4 games through my phone so I can play gta online, in bed and it does run smoothly, as well as being easy to set up and get going. The only short fall is you can't do everything through your phone to your ps4, like set up network and few different settings but over all solid nice app 👌

    My phone is a Samsung Galaxy A50. It's now on Android 10. I can access my PS4 through my phone. I can connect to my Dualshock 4 controller via bluetooth. When I try to use my Dualshook 4 with remote play, I'm told that I can't use the Dualshock 4 because this device doesn't support Dualshock 4 despite that it seems to work with other games on my phone. What the actual heck. Please fix this. Amusing that a third party developer was able to accomplish what Sony could not with their own software

  49. xRikux-avatar



    Terrible I just bought a new tablet and I made sure it was on Android 10 because I was aware that Android 10 is needed for controller support. I turn on the remote play app and got a message saying this device doesn't work with my DS4 controller. I'd love an update that allows it to work so I can rate the app fairly.

    The response was slow. Everything happened a little moment after you pressed any button. It also crashed and corrupted the game I was playing and I had to delete and reinstall it. I hate this thing but it is the only way to play on my phone. And the phone I have is only a 1 year old, it is not the phone.

    For some reason the microphone on my phone doesn't work anymore in app. Problem just started a few days ago. I use this app on a daily basis to keep talking to people in the party when my controller is out of range. Just stopped working randomly. I'm using a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android 10. <<>> Microphone still doesn't work

    Not what I expected. Thought I would be able to play my PS4 from anywhere in the world by logging into my Playstation account with this app. Nope! You gotta be on the same network. That means I can only play my PS4 while I'm in my house with this app. Why would I wanna do that? Maybe if my TV was broken or something? Otherwise, it's useless for me.

    Would love to use this with my dual shock controllers, but in all these years it's never been supported on any of my devices. I'm currently running Android 10 on a moto g stylus. Will change my rating when I can use my controller.

  55. teddywilding-avatar



    App is absolute trash. Keeps telling me my internet is too slow. I'm on fiber, connection on ps4 around 100mbps. Have tried 20 times and will not connect. Also do not understand why playstation has to have multiple apps to do everything. App for messages, app to type, app for remote why can't you build it all into one like hp omen app?

  56. Noah Williams-avatar

    Noah Williams


    It says you need a code to hook it up or control but if your controller broke how are you supposed to connect . That is why rated one star if there is a list of PS4 that you can connect to I would rated 5-stars but there is none so once far from now. Please update. And when you do I will take it down. (The message). I like how it is just no code. One extra star because I like Sony

    Excellent thing. I use it to play on my cousins' PS4 while I'm not at their place. Great app! I wouldn't know if it supports bluetooth controllers because I use the iPhone version (all my androids are old af) but that would be cool. I would like this to also support multiplayer (use of 2-4 bluetooth controllers), Support for the PS3, and being able to register multiple systems. other than that this is perfect

    I have a moto z4, a very decent gaming phone with Android10. My New dual shock 4 controller works in every aspect of my phone and it's apps. I can access the touch abilities and everything, navigate other apps and sites with virtually zero latency. However my DS4 does NOT work with PS4 Remote Play. I get a notification stating my device doesn't support it despite having used in on multiple mobile games and apps continuously since I've gotten this device. My ps4 pro is updated as well.

  59. Beastronomy-avatar



    I love it! My third controller got messed up, so I started using this and it's amazing. I can play games, it's kind of hard but it's fun! I have been using it almost non-stop recently. But of course if no one else is playing I use a normal controller. I also like that it provides a screen for you to use.

    DS4 Not Supported on Android 10. I have used this app a lot back when I was on Android 9 and was anticipating my phone's update to Android 10 to use the DS4 controller. Have the Android 10 update now and it claims it isn't supported. I really hope they fix this soon. Thanks to my phone's faster internet than my Vita, this was going to be the best way to play.

  62. DarkSidesHero-avatar



    Couldn't play any of my games since I gameshare with a friend. All games were locked and showed they only had access to my friend and oddly his cousin which made no sense. Also, my dashboard looked nothing like how I really have it. Showed games on there I don't even have installed. Was really looking forward to using this but dah well.

    I've been waiting for that android 10 update on my phone so that I can connect the controller via Bluetooth. Was even thinking about buying a new tablet when I saw the news about this feature being available on android 10. When I finally got the update, guess what? I can connect the controller to my phone via Bluetooth and it works, but when I open the ps4 remote play app I get a message that "You cannot use DUALSHOCK 4 in PS4 Remote Play because this device doesn't support DUALSHOCK 4."

  64. dappem42-avatar



    Got a Motorola G7 power android 9. The delay between phone and PS4 is to be expected,, so I don't play most games that require quick inputs. But the fact that my ds4 works fine, via a wire, with almost all native android apps. BUT NOT WITH THE REMOTE PLAY APP. A couple of years ago it worked fine and now you need android 10 to allow it to work? How can that be. Progress is meant to go forward right? In short, unless you have android 10 installed your device, this app is a cruel joke.

    Works a lot better than it used to. As long as you are on good wifi this app us great. I travel sometimes so this is amazing for me. I love that I can still play games from a state or two away. I only wish there was a way to do this off of wifi. Would pay good money for that option.

    The app works but it doesn't support fullscreen on the Samsung Galaxy s8 devices even when fullscreen mode is on. I wish DS4 could have supported android 9 too. Until you guys fix the fullscreen issue I can only give the app a 3 star rating.

    Love the capabilities with this app. Only issue I am having when I tried to connect my DUAL SHOCK 4 PS4 controller to my Moto G Power I receive a message that they are incompatible. 5 Stars once this is fixed because evething else works great.

  68. TheProperGamer12-avatar



    It works and let's me play my ps4 on my phone and stuff but the only problem I keep having no matter what settings I put it on my screen starts to glitch out and I have to turn off the app and it never fixes itself and the other problem I have is that I wish this was easier to use when it comes to wifi connections since it would be so much easier having the option to use my phones internet if the wifi doesn't work good for it

    PS4 remote play is actually like a really good app and works great but can get quite laggy and sometimes the graphics get really bad, I changed the resolution to 720p 60FPS because I have a PS4 Slim. I have pretty good internet as well with about 50 download and 20 upload with 5 and lower ping on average. Just that one graphics issue. It's great for when your not at home and want to play for a bit. At family gatherings, when the parents and stuff talk and ur bored it always comes in clutch ;)

    Great app when I want to play and I'm not at home. However, there are two large issues still. If I'm on a Discord call and open the app, the audio stops working. Second, why do I need a wifi connection? I have LTE and 5G service that's faster and unlimited.

    I'm glad I found this app, but it would be nice if you could still use your Dualshock 4 controller cause not everyone has an Android 10 device and the screen controller is abysmal... If we were in the same area as our PS4 console and we could use our device as just the screen (if our TV is occupied for some other reason) then this is an app I'd gladly use

  72. Koshika Gupta-avatar

    When the Dual Shock 4 works on other apps on my phone like Real Racing 3, then why does it say that my phone does not supports Dual Shock 4? It ruins the gameplay as playing on a phone with the buttons placed like a controller is very uncomfortable and annoying. Other than that, it is great for checking the download status of a game etc.

    IMPORTANT. The display window is too small and makes this useless. Please provide FULLSCREEN LANDSCAPE DISPLAY mode on EVERY device that Sony does not want this app to be useless and angering fans with, and to facilitate this, please stop conspicuously and selectively blocking devices' native DS4 compatability and support, exclusively when this app is used. It makes Sony leaders look like arbitrarily mean people, for doing that. ARE they mean? I await an answer.

    It's ok, runs good but the only thing missing is the controller support, that's why I stopped using this. Pls add the controller support soon in the next ps4 update, it has been almost 6 months or so since launch! Thx

    Nathan Arnold


    The only complaint I have is that the PS4 DualShock controller doesn't with with the app. The controller work fine with all my other mobile games like KOTOR and Vice City. When I go and use it with this app, it just says that this device does not support DualShock controller. Which is really annoying. If that worked, I'd give this app 5 Stars.

    Unfortunately, this app and the concepts isn't there yet. I have a 50-100MBPS Internet Speed, a Samsung S10+ and games are unplayable and the streaming lags badly. Would not recommend and will continue to onply play on my TV. This is why I do not trust Google Stadia or Xbox Game Pass yet, as these technologies have not been optimized for low speed/latency networks and will take a while to do so. Maybe if they put 5G in PS5 but at this moment this is not playable.

    (Google Chromebook Review) I just bought a google chromebook and wanted to try the ps4 remote play but once you install and run the app the program lags and crashes no matter the setting. on the phone the app works great. I thought it could be a video card issue but with this being a simple mirror connection and controller a new computer shouldnt have an issue.

  78. STEVE CORTINA-avatar



    The app works just fine, the problem is that the DualShock 4 doesn't work with the app, and I'm running it on Android 10, which Sony said it's supposes to work for. So, what the hell? Do I need a specific version of the DualShock 4 or what? Tried asking PlayStation on Twitter, the solution they gave me didn't work, wrote back a follow-up, no response back. Pretty much gave me the run-around. Dropped it to 2 stars.

    I can't use my controller on my chrome book. I have to use the touchscreen controller and I can't play as good. Also I don't want to ruin my screen by tapping it all the time.

    My PS4 controller will not work with this app on my Samsung Galaxy A71 5G. Even though I am using Android 10 and my PS4 is up to date. My phone CAN connect to the PS4 controller for navigating my phone, but for some reason, this app says it is not compatible. Would be 5 stars if this could work with the PS4 controller.

    App works fine, but on Android 11 connected my DS4 with Bluetooth and while the phone accepts all the inputs and everything is working correctly, the remote play all is not taking the inputs and controlling the PlayStation with them.

    Went from being able to play with no connection issues or lag to all of a sudden not even able to connect to my ps4 period. Before it even connects it says it lost the signal. None of my setting on my phone or system have changed and neither has my wifi. I can be standing directly in front of my console still can't connect

  83. Ben Duong-avatar

    Ben Duong


    Laggy and delayed, thanks to an un-optimized app ; unlike the psvita, you cannot connect to the ps4 directly for a stronger local connection without lag. So you are stuck with a bit of delay, whether you use a 5ghz connection or directly use ethernet on BOTH the phone and ps4, since it must pass through a 3rd device, which is the router. Ridiculous , especially since the vita has been phased out of production

    I can not even rate it. Cause going to play gta 5 online and it wont pull up the interaction menu. This is needs to be fixed then I would rate it until then i have to give it a 1 star, but if it was optional I wouldn't even rate it at all. Very very disappointing. Needs fixing.

    Quick question, why exactly can't I use a controller on Android 9? My phone can handle xcloud just fine and the only thing I can think of is the gyro and touchpad but I can't imagine it would be too hard to display a message saying the gyro and touchpad don't work and letting me use it for other games.

    Tested on a Samsung S8 with a Dualshock 4 controller connected playing GTA V. This app is everything the official playstation remote play should of been, playing local and over 4G away from home has worked perfectly. I really like how the DS4 controller is supported by the app unlike the official playstation app which blocks it unless you have the newest phone available. Not experienced any issues so far and I'm glad this app exists so thank you for creating this incredible app. 10/10

    Needs to support mobile data. By all means have a warning about latency and bandwidth (and maybe cost) but it is ridiculous (not to mention none of your business) whether I use wi-fi or mobile data. Having said that, I love it.

    So i can connect a PS4 controller to my phone no problem. Then when i try and use this app it says my phone doesnt support the controller??? Im running android 10, why does the controller not work. If the controller ever starts working i'll give more stars, but as for now, its useless.

  92. Sarah Leggero-avatar

    If your connection is strong and you can adjust your sensitivity its ok, but extremly laggy if you dont have full connetion. Also the amount of input you have to put in just to move properly is harsh and i looked like a drunk trying to ride my horse in Red dead redmption 2. Also there is no option for L3/R3 so no croutching. Another issue is when i do use the left annalog i have to drag my finger all the way in th middle of the screen just to see the mini map. Screen scale is also difficult.

  93. DeCo-avatar



    The only reason I need this app so I can use it on journeys and using my 80gb mobile data for better connection. Since public hubs never connects anywhere.But I can't,it only works on wifi .. WHY? What's is the point? Realy disappointed by this move from Sony. It's our choice wich data we use and in most cases it's 3x faster than public wifi. SO MUCH FOR REMOTE PLAY LOL.. Garbage until this gets sorted

    Good idea. But touch controls on a phone don't work as well as a DS4 controller. And my device (LG G8X) does not work with a DS4 even though it's running Android 10 and the DS4 can be used for other games.

  95. Jacob Ekker-avatar

    On screen controls are embarassing. OTG support nonexistant. Whats the point of making this app available on any non-android 10 device? You can't even use your ps4 controller connected to the console and the app as an alt screen when you're in range, engaging remote play disengages your controller. controller

    Keeps saying I need to update the app when it's already updated and won't let me connect. According to PS rep they also don't help with support of the app either so they give you a product and if doesn't work figure it out yourself, pretty much. Garbage

    If you have a good internet connection then it is good for when you need to be in a different room, but don't want to haul your PS4 elsewhere. Long distances aren't too great, but I've yet to fully test it. Another issue is that you can't use any video apps while using the app(YouTube, Netflix, etc.). 1st person games are also nearly unplayable due to framerate, but most 3rd person games look, and feel fine. Other than that everything else works pretty well.

    It is more than a bit ridiculous that on this same device (Pixel Slate Tablet), I can connect my dualshock to play on Stadia - yet for the Remote Play app, I am unable to use the same dualshock because it is "unsupported on this device".

  104. Francisco Martinez-avatar

    Francisco Martinez


    Where to even start. Why would you disable the app while on Netflix or YouTube? Do you honestly think that people use this app to play games? Odds are, people use this app to navigate their ps4 BECAUSE they don't have a working controller. Otherwise no one would use this annoying app that makes you reconnect every time you open another app or turn off your screen (hint, that's my second complaint).

    Hot garbage it's just bad to play on touch the sensitivity is just horrendous and you be damn lucky to even have a compatible device that supports the Dualshock4, no I can't be any random Android 10 it has to be a specific supported device. The on screen thumbs sticks for moving and looking aren't even fixed in one spot it just appears where ever it wants when you put your thumbs some where else where you think it will normally be like I don't know WHERE IT SHOULD BE LIKE ON A CONTROLLER!

    Such wasted potential. I can use the dualshock 4 to play Xbox game streaming and Stadia, but apparently when using remote play my phone "does not support" it... It's an Xperia Phone! Why can't I keep the dualshock 4 connected to the PS4 and play remote play is beyond my comprehension. Sony is so far behind the competition, if it wasn't for those exclusives they'd end up like blockbusters. TLDR feedback for devs - Allow Dualshock 4 to remain connected to PS4 during remote play - Fix app

    So the ps4 remote play is cool and all, but there is one problem. There is too much lag even if you on 360 or 540. So, I asking you guys that create this app to fix that problem pls. I give it four stars for one reason. Ok?

  109. Petrolane-avatar

    Would be an awesome app if they would allow you to use mobile data. There is so much wasted potential without this feature. Guess I just have to swap my sim into an old device to use my data as a hotspot, although I think this is counterintuitive to the convenience of having your PS4 in your pocket. Other than that glaring flaw, glad to see that the app is available to those that don't wish to purchase an Xperia. I just wish Sony would be open to making the app more accessible 'for the players'

    I have a small suggestion. On certain games, intro sequences are blocked scenes and disallow you from starting the game. For example, Dark Cloud has an intro to the game but it interuots the remote play app and hides the start button. As a result, none of the games i wanted to play could be played and i lost all of my PS Now's subscription time trying to find a fix. The app does work well however, for other games. This app is a big compromise for not just using the controller.

    A good app, the only downside for me personally is the lack of compatibility with the dualshock 4 controller. I'm using a Samsung A50 and I'd expect at this stage to be able to use dualshock with the app, but despite being able to control my phone with it, I can't control the remote play app with it, if this could be fixed, I would be leaving a 5 star review, but until then, unfortunately my stance is stuck on a 3 star.

  121. 闻人曲哲-avatar



    My Xperia1(Chinese Ver.) cannot use DS4 controller in this app. It said "this device doesn't support DualShock4". What 's the problem and funny things that these products from one company one brand cannot match together! I need solutions .

  122. Mr. IDGAF-avatar

    Mr. IDGAF


    The app needs to be improved for its screen controls (where you cant press L2 and the left analog stick at the same time), minor controller input lag and the ability to move and resize the controls on the screen in settings. Also, the audio is so quiet. Also, 720p and 60 fps (frame rate or refresh rate) should be standard, but you have to change it in settings for some reason to get it. Took so long just to port Remote Play on Android when PS4 is at the end of its life cycle - shame on Sony.

  123. Ryan-avatar



    Normally I would give it 5 stars but I can't use it on my new phone, every time I try to connect my phone to the ps4 a message keeps saying update app but I can't there's no option to update it.

    The app itself is a great feature for the PS4, and it works like a charm. The reason for my rating is the reliance on A WiFi connection to be able to use the app at all. Why would this be a restriction in the age of 5G? Even with 4G LTE this app could run just as well as with a WiFi connection, especially when the requirements for a stable connection are 12 Mbps

    Ok so I'm going to say that this was the best app bc I couldn't find the other controller for me and my cousins to play so I just played on here cause I don't have a competitive device to play fortnite on and my brother was amazed bc he had never seen it but now it's bad bc I try to connect my PS4 to my phone and I cant it says register manually which wasn't a problem untill it said cannot register PS4 I thought I was a glitch so I tried again nothing uninstall reinstall nothing so that's 2 star

    It does work, which is good. But using on Chromebook means no DS4 support, so it cannot be used at all in any practical sense. Useless. And with no PS Now app, this is the only way to access your subscription out of home without a windows PC - to stream to your PS4 at home and then stream to device from that PS4. Shame a computer hardware manufactorer is so backwards in so many respects.

  148. DavanieDragon-avatar



    This app is a very good concept and in most parts it succeeds in what it is made to do, but it lacks in many things such as connectivity and gameplay. The gameplay is laggy even when I am right next to my playstation it lags and connection wise it lacks in that as well. Nearly every 5 to 10 minutes it disconnects even though I am right next to my ps4. The controls make simple games unplayable and if it is marketed as gaming on the go I doubt you would make it outside before it disconnects.
