The PlayStation 5 has revolutionized the video game console market since its release, being virtually impossible to get one and the prediction is that it will be like this for weeks. But, strange as it may seem to many, there are those who have succeeded and, if you are one of them, you will surely be happy to know that you can enjoy your games in addition to the console itself.
Sony has decided that its new generation of consoles has Remote Play (as it already did on PS4), therefore PS5 games can also be played on a PC or smartphone. Of course, you can also do this on your Android mobile and we will tell you how.
What is PS5 Remote Play?
It will be possible to play PS5 games on Android.
First let's explain what we are talking about. Remote Play is a feature that allows you to stream and play your PS4 and PS5 games, switch games, view your console home screen, and navigate console menus on any compatible device connected to your Internet network.
This, in practice, means that you can start a game on your console connected to a TV, pause the game and continue on another compatible device. Of course, we insist, it must be under the same broadband network. Of course, you can also start the game directly on your smartphone or PC and continue it whenever you want on the console.
How to play PS5 on Android with remote play?
The remote play function is completely free for PS5 and PS4. For this to work properly you need to have the console (obviously) and connect it to your home broadband via cable. Subsequently, the device from which we want to use this function must be connected to the same internet network and download the official application on it. We must also have a controller DUALSHOCK 4 or DualSense and finally a game.
Compatible Android devices
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus will be one of the devices supported by Android 11.
PlayStation hasn't been too fussy about Android devices that can take advantage of the remote play feature. Specifically, any smartphone with Android 7 or later.
Obviously having newer terminals or tablets has its advantages. And that is if your mobile has Android 10 or later you can connect to a wireless controller PlayStation. Obviously, the more advanced features of the controller like tactile response, touchpad or adaptive triggers they will not work beyond PlayStation 5.
