How To Play PS4 Games On Android Smartphone

- The Remote Play app will search for your PS4 using WiFi, so make sure it’s connected to the internet. It is the automatic method, which is slower. You can use the manual process to pair your PS4 and smartphone using a unique key. On your PS4, go to [Settings]->[Remote Play Connection Settings]->[Add Device] and enter the displayed number on your smartphone.

People could have done the same earlier, but there was no official support for the PS4 controller. Now you can play your favorite PS4 games on your Android smartphone. This feature is especially useful for those people who don’t have multiple TVs in their house. The PS4 Remote Play app utilizes your smartphone as a second screen, thus leaving your TV free for someone else to use.
If your internet connection is not strong enough, you can adjust the quality of the video via the settings menu of the Remote Play app. You can also downgrade the resolution and decrease the frame rates to make it easier to stream games on slow internet.
