Remote play has been a fun feature of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles for quite some time, allowing you to play your PS games remotely from another device. As long as you have a stable Wi-Fi connection, remote play should work from a Mac, PC, laptop, smartphone, or second PS5 or PS4. Technically, Remote Play was born with the PlayStation 3, but it only worked with a second PlayStation branded device (like a PlayStation Vita or a PlayStation Portable, ah, the good old days).
Starting today, owners of the PS5 and a DualSense wireless controller will finally be able to pair it with their Android 12 smartphone through the PS Remote Play app, bringing nearly all of the controller functionality straight to their handset. .
It should be noted that while you don’t need to be at home to use Remote Play, you do need a Wireless connection: the feature will not work over a cellular connection, such as LTE or 5G.
If you’re one of the lucky few who got your hands on the elusive Playstation 5 (at least it’s pretty elusive in the US), you should be able to go ahead and enjoy the new take. Support Remote Play for Android 12 with your new DualSense wireless controller (plus new built-in DualShock 4 features) immediately.
