Almost three months ago, developers managed to bring the PS4 Remote Play app to non-Sony smartphones thanks to an apk file. Although this app was compatible on devices running Android 4.0, the feature was non-functional as Sony was expected to kick off the service in November. And since those options were eventually rendered useless, this new Remote Play port might be worth a look.
This port comes from an XDA user called TheScriptKitty who claims the app to be compatible with Android 4.4+ running devices, but some users on Android 4.2 and 4.3 smartphones are apparently having luck with the app as well. The best part about this new hack is that it doesn’t require users to get root access on their smartphones. However, root access is necessary if you also want the DualShockManager app on your smartphone.
Follow these instructions to get the app on your smartphone:
Download and install RemotePlayPortV0.6.1.apk (if you have a previous version installed run “adb uninstall com.playstation.remoteplay” first.)
If you’re seeing any luck with this feature or need help with the process, make sure you head over to the XDA page below for detailed information on the update.
