PS4 System Software Update 7.00 launches later this week and will include a number of different changes for the PS4 platform.

The most eye-catching of them all is the rollout of official PS4 Remote Play support on Android devices.

This is currently limited to just a few different types of phones, with iOS devices, PC and Mac support also included.

But this weekend has seen Sony confirm that plans are changing for Remote Play, which allows gamers to stream their games from console to phone/Device.

The requirements will be low on Android, and the Remote Play App will be accessible from the Google PlayStore.

Sony is also making it easier to use your PS4 controller while trying out Remote Play, and there are also some updates that iOS users will want to know about.

“For those who want to stream select PS4 games on mobile devices, Remote Play can now be used on smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or higher,” Sony explains in a new post.

“For those who want to stream select PS4 games on mobile devices, Remote Play can now be used on smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or higher,” a message from Sony explains.

“Just download the PS4 Remote Play App from the Google Play store to use the feature.

“Meanwhile, for iPhone or iPad users, the Remote Play App has been updated so you can now display the controller at all times and lock the screen orientation.

“Also, players will be able to use their DualShock 4 wireless controllers via Bluetooth for Remote Play on an Android, iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

“All you need to do is update to Android 10, iOS 13, iPadOS 13, or macOS Catalina (releasing in October) to use this feature.

“As a reminder, a PS4 system with a wired connection via a LAN cable is recommended.”

We haven’t been given a release date for the new PS4 update or how big it might be to download.

Away from Remote Play, Sony is also updating the current party system used on the PS4 platform.

New features and services include

  • Maximum number of Party users increased from 8 to 16
  • Network connectivity improved
  • Audio quality improved
  • Accessibility support with Chat Transcription has been added (US Only)

A more detailed description of all the changes can be found below, courtesy of Sony:

“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.

“Lastly, the Party App will also offer a new Chat Transcription feature for US users via the PS4 Second Screen App on your smartphone or other mobile devices.

“The new feature supports US English and converts party voice chat to text, or enables you to enter text that is read aloud to other party members.

“If using your mobile device to connect to your PS4 during a Party, you will now see a new Party tab has been added where the new functionality is available.”
