User Reviews for PS Remote Play

Great but its missing one thing or two

The thing that it’s missing is the buttons since the buttons are super big because i have a iPhone 6s Plus the buttons are big that I accidentally tap on the other buttons while I’m playing need for speed payback I accidentally put the button to tune the car or when I play fortnite (I’m lazy and don’t want to download the game on my phone because it’s a waste of battery and time and memory space on my phone so I play on the games of my PlayStation on my phone witch is fun and add a option in the the setting where you can customize the buttons where you can put them somewhere else on the screen and make them smaller and one more thing that it needs is that you can use the daulshock and play on the phone without the one thing that one thing happening and the two the two things that I’m asking please because someone’s tv or monitor might break so they can play on their phone or tablet with or without the daulshock that are the two things that I’m asking right now and other people might appreciate it a lot and I mean a lot and by the way mention the in the news and more people or going to use it

Finally works like it should!

Works on MAX setting with no seriously noticeable lag over WiFi connection. No longer seems to drop connection as it always did in the past. Using mobile data over 4G LTE on the lowest quality settings. Works fine-Poor quality though. Using over mobile data on Medium or High quality settings brings the Stream to a stutter and drops out soon after. Once everyone is using 5G this should work great. So until then only the lowest quality setting is playable at the moment. The developers really can’t be held at fault for this though. It is simply the limitation of the slower mobile data uplink for the time being. Again when we are all rocking 5G when that’s standard all over (hopefully by 2025) we will all be playing remotely at the highest quality settings with no lag.

4 Stars

I’m going to be honest I give it 4 stars because it lags so much. You probably been saying “It’s your internet “ but no this app loses connection and lags so much. I know for a fact it’s not my Internet because I have good internet but okay. Everything else is good, is like if you are playing ps4 games on your phone with a ps4 controller. I like this app but like how I said you can’t play relax because it lags a lot and disconnects. But I use this app when I don’t have access to my tv because I can just turn on my ps4 and play on my phone. I would give it 5 stars but the lagging and disconnection problem bothers a lot.(Fun fact I use this app where I have a good signal of wifi which is my living room where my ps4 is in my room but my room is not far from the living room because is just like right away.)

Welcome to the 21st century

I have to say I was a sceptic at first with the playstation now service being a GameFly customer for so many years but there is one thing that I noticed and I’m glad I made the switch. GameFly has always and I mean always been slow with their shipping of games and even worse not sending the right game when a new release was coming out. I got tired of it and canceled my subscription and a couple of months later I signed up for playstation now which is way cheaper than Gamefly’s advertised price for just one game out at a time. Last night I decided to try out the remote play just to see if it was all the hype that I heard about being able to use the PS4 DualShock controller with a MacBook, all I can say is bravo Sony once again for blowing my mind. This is the best thing I have ever experienced besides VR but just the ease and functionality of it has impressed me tremendously. I strongly recommend downloading this app if you have playstation now because it is worth the money especially if your still a Gamefly customer.

Needs an update for connecting Ps5/PS4 Without using rest mode

Everything of this app works really well, but the one thing they could do, is have a big update that allows you to connect your Ps5/PS4 without having your console on rest mode. For me I have recently bought Backbone One PlayStation Edition Mobile Controller for using Remote Play. But I sometimes I forgot to put my Ps5 on rest mode, which I would have to bring my Ps5 controller just so it can turn on the Ps5 while at work, in order to play it mobile. But it’s not the internet fault, everywhere I’m at has the best Wi-Fi including my house. I really don’t want to keep bringing my Ps5 controller every-time I forgot to put it on rest mode. There’s a reason why I only bring on controller and it’s the PlayStation Edition Mobile Controller. We will really appreciate if you fix this problem with a huge update thanks

Minimal use

This is a super exciting little gadget, our household doesn’t watch tv so the entertainment equipment has a separate room upstairs. It’s nice being in the kitchen and while I’m making food or laying in bed, I can access my game from my phone and doddle around. It’s great for doing menu work in fallout 76, I played the witness for several hours in bed. And path of exile just came out, sat my couch in my living room and slayed some monsters. Using the screens control (slight delay and my fingers take up most the screen) got tiring and I started googling how I can connect my PS4 wireless duel shock only to discover I can’t. It’s a real bummer, and I feel it’s a really missing of the mark on this app. All in all it works but expect delayed controls as it’s just streaming to your phone. No controller really kills it. But it’s super awesome of fiddle farting through menus. Would be perfect for old school rpgs or any game that doesn’t require precious movements. 4/5 will be my rating. First review of an app. Fun gadget

Lots of Potential!

This app has a lot of potential for the future. After attempting to give it a test with Apex Legends, I came to the realization that I simply cannot press all the buttons needed at the same time when under combat. The controls disappeared after a few seconds and I ended up pressing outside the button boundaries. I have not yet tested an external BT controller, so I might see if it has this functionality at a later time. But as for using it to control apps and services. It works great. The chat function works great, but it would be a nice feature addition to use it for only chat with no game audio or video. The quality and framerate is amazing if you have a 100mbs+ internet connection from both host and target networks. As this app was just released this morning, I'm sure there are lots more features and functionality planned as the technology evolves. Overall, this app works great as a way to play simple arcade or basic controlled games and is a nice remote, but not ideal for playing FPS or more robust games where you need better hand eye coordination. We’ll see what time has to offer.

Works great with my PS5, the default white screen is harsh though.

I recently purchased a PS5, and after being spoiled by using my Nintendo Switch away from the living room I was very happy to find the Remote Play functionality is as great as it is. I have my PS5 connected via Ethernet to my Eero primary node, and my iPad connected over wireless. Outside of a very few slowdowns it has been amazing. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the loading screen / home screen / launch screen is a harsh white screen, which is overwhelming and requires the screen brightness to be lowered, which immediately needs to be turned back up as soon as you reach the actual PS5 Home Screen which is black. The fact its such a drastic change and is not able to be configred even to a less harsh color like a dark gray is very frustrating as I have to change the screen brightness every time I launch / open the application. I will change to 5 stars the minute they add a setting to permit a dark mode or black background launch screen to match the PS5 background.

Motion is broken

It’s incredible to use an iOS device as a portable window to the Playstation, so I’m very happy this app and functionality exists. I’ve been playing a lot of the game Dreams recently, and found a bug with the Remote Play app that makes Dreams, and games like it, almost unplayable. The app (or the Playstation 5 itself) isn’t handling motion correctly. I’ve tested with the onscreen controls, 3 DualShock 4s, and 2 DualSense’s, and the issue is the same no matter the controller type. My Imp (within Dreams) always drifts to the left edge, making me re-center the control every 30 seconds or less. All of my controllers don’t have this problem on the actual console, and I noticed this issue with no controllers connected as well. So it’s clearly an app / PS5 issue here. Luckily most games don’t use motion controls, but those that do won’t be a great experience. Please fix this Sony.

Apologies to PS and a solution for those still having connection issues

Seems I’ve found the issue to why the remote play wasn’t working away from home when I’m at work, for those having issues , make sure your router is in AP mode ( if you have both modem n router ) also google the ports that need to be forwarded for Ps remote play and set up port forwarding on your home admin Wifi , give your PS4 a static IP that is available to prevent it from changing when you restart your PS4 before setting up port forwarding , disable PS vita network settings( causes some issues) . And the part no one told me about not even google is that at the second location (work ) find the ip address your phone is using , go into the Wifi admin ( if you don’t have access then hope the default password is set on the Wifi admin which is user : admin, password : password , might be different for other people) once in the settings enable DMZ mode and put in the private IP address you found for your mobile phone )In the PS4 remote play app reduce the graphics settings ( not required but just in case ) and try to connect to your PlayStation that is in REST MODE at home from work , this will take 2-4 failed connections if your PS4 is not on Ethernet n is below 60% Wifi signal strength, but it should work afterwards running as smoothly as if the PlayStation was right in front of you at work .
