Sony PS4 Remote Play Ported to All Android Devices
I’m pretty sure that every informed gamer out there perked their ears up when Sony came out with PS4 Remote Play for their Xperia Z3 lineup. For those not in the know, PS4 Remote Play is a unique feature that allows you to remotely play PlayStation 4 games on the device. Unfortunately, according to comment from a Sony representative, the company has “no intent to bring remote play to any device other than Xperia” – a disappointment for anyone wanting to try out the feature on their non-Xperia device. But don’t let this get you down however, as XDA Forum Member XperiaPlaystation has managed to port PS4 Remote Play over to any Android device.
The port is to be installed by flashing the provided ZIP package and installing the provided APK as a normal app plus a few extra steps in between such as wiping the cache and rebooting. The port will work only with devices running Android 4.0 or newer. Additionally, Xperia Z1 owners may have an additional step of changing the build.prop in order to get this up and running.
