What you'll need
How does PS Remote Play work?
On Android, Sony’s PS Remote Play app exclusively supports the Sony PlayStation® DualSense™ Wireless Controller and the DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller. At this time, there is no official support for any other input devices, including the Backbone One Controller for Android.
In the meantime, players can enjoy the hundreds of games available from both the Google Play Store and cloud gaming and remote play services offered by Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, GeForce Now, Steam Link, and more. Find out all the ways you can play by checking out our game and platform discovery pages.
Yup, PS Remote Play requires you to log into an PlayStation® console. It can be any console--whether you own it, rent it, or borrow it, that decision is up to you. No console? No problem. Every purchase of the Backbone One includes trials to the most popular cloud game streaming services, including Google Stadia Pro. Google Stadia Pro lets you play hit games like Cyberpunk and Resident Evil Village. Learn more here at playbackbone.com/gamepass/
The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PlayStation 5 all support PS Remote Play capabilities. Own an older generation model of PlayStation? No worries, there are many cloud streaming services that don’t require a console to play recent game titles like Cyberpunk and Resident Evil Village. Learn more at playbackbone.com/platforms/
Any game installed on your PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, or PlayStation 5 can be played remotely. You can even download new games remotely through the PS Remote Play app.

Nope! That’s the beauty of PS Remote Play. So long as you have a stable internet connection with your phone via wi-fi or cellular data and your PlayStation console is on or in rest mode, then it’s accessible anywhere. Play from the couch at grandma’s house or from the beach on a remote desert island.
