You can play PS5 games on iPhone, Android or PC – how to use Remote Play

PLAYING PS5 on your telly is fun – but you can also enjoy those same games on other devices.

PlayStation’s Remote Play feature lets you stream PS5 games to your smartphones, tablets and more.

Your iPhone or Android, PC or Mac, and even the iPad will likely all support Remote Play.

And you can use your next-gen DualSense controller to play games – just like on the PS5.

It works in exactly the same way as the PS4 version of Remote Play.

In fact, you can even stream PS5 to your PS4 console – or another PS5.

“PS Remote Play lets you stream and play your PS4 and PS5 games, switch between games, view your console home screen and browse the console’s menus on any compatible device that’s connected to your broadband network,” Sony explained.

“That means you can start playing with your PlayStation console connected to a TV, pause your game and access the PS Remote Play app on your chosen device, and your game will be there, ready to keep playing from exactly where you left it.

“Or you can switch on your PlayStation console and start playing directly from the app, with no need to ever switch on your TV.”

You’ll need to download the PS Remote Play app, which is completely free.

Get it here:

The compatible device needs to be connected to your PS5’s broadband network.

And you’ll need a compatible controller – either DualShock 4 or DualSense.

A good internet connection is required: the minimum is 5Mbps broadband, while 12Mbps via a LAN cable is recommended.

Of course, you’ll also want to download a compatible PS5 game.

Any game will work, as long as it doesn’t require PlayStation VR, the PlayStation Camera, or any other essential peripherals – beyond a standard PlayStation joypad.

Some features, including Touch Pad, Motion Sensor and Vibration might not work through Remote Play.

But largely, your gaming experience should be the same as when you play directly using your PS5.
