This article is over 4 years old and may contain outdated information

Among the most interesting features of the PlayStation 4 console is Remote Play, which allows players to enjoy games played on the console on another device. Initially, Remote Play was only possible with a PlayStation Vita console, but the feature has eventually been expanded, allowing remote playing on PC and even iOS devices. Android users have been left out, sadly, but it seems like their time has come.

Sony announced today that the PlayStation 4 system software update will introduce Remote Play for Android devices. It will work as it does for iOS devices, with multiple streaming options that will allow players to customize their experience to their needs. The new 7.00 system software update releases later this week worldwide.

As mentioned above, Remote Play has been expanded over time, and the new options added over the course of the years have transitioned over to mobile Remote Play. Originally, it was only possible to stream games to the Remote Play device in 30 FPS, but Sony later added an option for 60 FPS.

Remote Play works well for the most part, but connection quality and distance from the console make all the difference. Remote Play with a direct connection to the console works best, but if the internet connection used is good, results are rather nice and make Remote Play a very good option to play remotely with little loss of quality.

Remote Play is coming to Android later this week.
