Mac and Windows PC owners can now use PS4's Remote Play on their computer screens. We detail the steps that console users can follow to update their monitors and play via their desktop computers.(Photo: PlayStation) PlayStation has finally released an update that allows Windows and Mac users to stream games on their PS4.
If the user’s systems pass all requirements, they can now download either the update for Windows PC or Mac. On their computers, users should run the downloaded installation file and follow onscreen instructions. If the application asks for additional software to download, which are needed to run PS4 Remote Play, onscreen prompts will pop up with instructions on how to do so.
Once all that is done, head on over to your PS4 system and boot it up for initial setup.
1. Enable Remote Play by selecting “Settings,” then “Remote Play Connection Settings,” then check the box beside “Enable Remote Play.”
2. Assign your PS4 as your primary system by selecting “PlayStation Network/Account Management” under “Settings,” then “Activate as Your Primary PS4,” then select “Activate.”
3. Lastly, if users want to start Remote Play while their PS4s are in rest mode, they can go to “Power Save Settings” in their “Settings” menu, then “Set Features Available in Rest Mode,” then select the boxes beside “Stay Connected to the Internet” and “Enable Turning On PS4 from Network.”
If some of the options mentioned above do not appear, users should check that they are running the latest firmware of PS4 or at least version 3.5.
To use Remote Play, PS4 users can either boot up or put their console system to rest mode. By using a USB cable, they can connect a controller to the computer. Users should now run the Remote Play application on their system then click “Start.”
They will then have to log in their Sony Entertainment Network accounts for their PS4 system; after which, they can finally start playing their PS4 through their computer monitors.
How To Remote Play Ps4 On Pc

It’s quite strange that it took so long for Sony to finally release it on iOS, but better late than never, isn't it? In order to play, you need to have: iPhone or iPad, a stable Internet connection (WiFi is good to go), remote play device, and, of course, your favorite PS4 game. All users have to download PS4 Remote play app and then connect consoles via WiFi or manually. The app will display your PS4 home screen and give the full access to your game library. Previously, iOS users were desperate to stream their games using third-party apps such as R-Play for the price of $12. The new app is totally free and available at App Store. As with the other platforms, the idea of the remote play application for iOS is to let you enjoy favorite games “on-the-go” on your mobile device, using on-screen overlay buttons. Unfortunately, Sony confirmed that you cannot use Dualshock PS4 Controllers that come with the console. Instead, users may consider a third-party option. It’s a good start for iPhone. However, lacking access to the Dualshock makes Android and Mac and other platforms better options, at least at this stage.
