The PlayStation 5 is coming out tomorrow for the United States and in a week for Europe, and – suffice to say – many people are excited to get their hands on the giant system. Most of the positive reviews have been about the DualSense controller which has been regarded as a “literal game changer,” but – before the next-gen system’s launch – Sony gamers have noticed the emergence of a new remote play app on their PS4. This has resulted in people asking what is the PS5 remote play app on PS4, and here you’ll discover how to use the application.
There are plenty of launch games for the next-gen system to look forward to such as Spider-Man Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls which looks incredible, and Godfall which is an engima to many. Not to mention there’s also Bugsnax which will be available for free via PS Plus, and there’ll also be a PS Plus collection available for those who missed out on current-gen juggernauts such as God of War and Uncharted 4. Oh, and don’t forget about Astro’s Playroom.
While those who managed to get a pre-order only have to wait until tomorrow or the 19th to begin their next-gen escapade, below you’ll discover what the PS5 remote play app is on the PS4.
What is the PS5 remote play app?
The PS5 remote play app has suddenly appeared on the PS4 dashboard for many.
When the next-gen console launches, the PS5 remote play app will allow you to connect to and control the next-gen console while on PS4.
If you wish to use the app once you’ve received your next-gen console, you will need to enable remote play on the PS5 in Settings and System.
Per Eurogamer, the resolution options while streaming through PS4 are 540p, 720p, and 1,080p, and this will possibly help with any connection issues encountered during remote play.
While you can’t use a DualShock 4 to play PS5 games on the next-gen system itself, you can use a DualShock 4 to play PS5 games while using remote play on PS4.
