A major system software update has been released for the PlayStation 4. The new version, 6.50 adds a Remote Play feature for compatible smartphones and tablets. Remote Play is not a new feature and was even offered on the PS3. However, on that console there were big limitations and few games actually supported it. Today, that changes.

Before today, PS4 Remote Play was only supported by the PlayStation Vita and a very select group of Sony Smartphones. Now that the Vita has ceased production (and by all accounts was an unfortunate failure) it looks like Sony is bringing this feature to the vast majority of handheld phones that can make use of it.

The 6.50 update is required to use the PlayStation Network. You’ll need to download the official Sony Remote Play app to use the feature with your smart device.
