PlayStation 4 Remote Play: support for the DualShock 4 wireless only on Android 10 and iOS13

PlayStation 4 Remote Play

Sony has released the firmware update 7.0 for PS4, the new update has introduced some news related to the party but not only, extending the Remote Play support to all Android smartphones, while until now the compatibility for Remote Play on the operating system of Google was limited to Xperia series devices only.

The PS4 Remote Play on Android works on all devices (smartphones or tablets) with the Android 5.0 operating system, a rather dated distribution that has remained in use only on cheap low-end products. But there is a but, or to connect a DualShock 4 wirelessly via Bluetooth will need to have an updated device to Android 10, among these we find Asus ZenFone 5Z, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, OnePlus 6T, OPPO Reno, Xiaomi Mi 9 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.

If your smartphone does not support Android 10 it will not be possible to connect the DualShock 4 via Bluetooth and you will have to “settle” for the virtual on-screen interface or cable connection. The same also applies to iPhones and iPads, where support for the wireless controller is limited to iOS 13, the latter compatible with all Apple products released in the last four years at least.
