For a long time, Xperia's Sony has usually been considered as the one and only smartphone which could exclusively load Remote Play for streaming games on PlayStation 4 consoles. Sony, in a blog post, said it is also supporting new streaming ways for owners of any type of smartphone for their convenience. Just by downloading the app Remote Play from Android 'Google Play, they can directly stream selected PS4 games on their smartphones or tablets as long as they have Android 5.0 or higher versions.
Another special feature of Remote Play is its new released assistant - Dual Shock 4, a supporting controller via Bluetooth that is designed for Remote Play only. Dual Shock at present is available for Android version 10 devices. And yes, you cannot find it anywhere else except for Sony’s Remote. In case you may prefer using the app on iOS devices, it can be accessed too, but limited to iPhone 7 or higher versions. There is also a firmware update exclusively for iOS users, which you can monitor the orientation of your screen while playing PS4.
In fact, one of the reasons that tech-savvies rushed to buy Sony Xperia is merely for the outstanding functionality of Remote Play. It cannot be imagined the number of Sony phones being sold out specifically for this feature. Meanwhile, Sony is also working on its party system applied for the PS4 platform. With this feature, the network connectivity, as well as audio quality, will be much improved. Specifically, the party back-end marks a great support for the network connectivity. It also reduces previously experienced technical issues relating to connectivity when users try to connect with each other.
It sounds like a strategic move in response to its rival, Google Stadia, a well-known streaming service that is about to launch in November this year.
