If you want to install and use the PS4 Remote Play app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type PS4 Remote Play in the search bar and press Search. Click on PS4 Remote Play application icon. A window of PS4 Remote Play on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Lots of Potential!

    By InvisibleFace
    This app has a lot of potential for the future. After attempting to give it a test with Apex Legends, I came to the realization that I simply cannot press all the buttons needed at the same time when under combat. The controls disappeared after a few seconds and I ended up pressing outside the button boundaries. I have not yet tested an external BT controller, so I might see if it has this functionality at a later time. But as for using it to control apps and services. It works great. The chat function works great, but it would be a nice feature addition to use it for only chat with no game audio or video. The quality and framerate is amazing if you have a 100mbs+ internet connection from both host and target networks. As this app was just released this morning, I'm sure there are lots more features and functionality planned as the technology evolves. Overall, this app works great as a way to play simple arcade or basic controlled games and is a nice remote, but not ideal for playing FPS or more robust games where you need better hand eye coordination. We’ll see what time has to offer.
  • Needs improvements

    By buddhatheonlyone
    I was super excited when I saw that this was released. I work from home, so when I am off, I like to get out of the house. I usually end up at my favorite local coffee shop to read and decompress, I also bring my Nintendo Switch so I am able to game away from home. When I saw I could play my PS4 from my iPhone and iPod, I quickly purchased the Nimbus controller so I could get this going. Unfortunately, this requires a strong WIFI and Upload/Download speed from ISP and does not allow you to use your phones carrier’s network. I have never had issueS with the Vita and remote playing, and would just use it, but playing a majority of the games with the Vita is impossible. I have tried every setting possible in this app for resolution and frame rate, but only have been able to connect once. The connection I am on pulls a constant 20mbps for download and 10mbps for upload, but I always get the weak connection error. Of course it works fine from home, and in local mode, my PS4 is connected by Ethernet cables. My ISP is at 100mbps download and 10mbps upload. Something needs to be done about this, when other streaming services work fine on the same connection.
  • Good idea just needs better execution

    By Warhammerh8er
    The app is great, it has great potential, but the execution was a little spotty. I got this app because I wanted to play PS4 games during my downtime at school. However when I tried playing it, it never connected. If there was one thing I would immediately improve is the ability to play anywhere on any WiFi network. I feel like the purpose of the app is negated when you can really only get the best use on the same network your PS4 is connected to. Also, the controls are a little hard to adapt to. The buttons are really big, and half the time I would end up pressing the d-pad instead of moving the sticks. The control delay is a major inhibitor and the unchangeable control sensitivity is difficult to work around. All in all I would recommend it if you need an extra controller or want to brag about playing Spider-Man on your phone, but at its current state, it needs some real improvements to truly be useful.
  • Clunky but a great start

    By Fire Of the 5's
    Finally for IOS users we’re getting remote play. And for the most part it’s pretty good. Connection is fairly easy once you register your Phone to PS4, framerate when playing is around 25 fps (even with a gigabyte connection) but is to be expected when your remoting in on a system so you’ll probably want to stay away from games like Apex legends or Battlefield and stick with single players game like Spider-Man and God of War. It’s controls are pretty good? While they done a good job emulating the buttons the L3 and R3 sticks are a bit finicky and hard to control. I don’t believe there is a sensitivity slider in the app so you might have some trouble getting use to it. Minus some hiccups this app mostly works as needed. So for Sony fixes to work on are framrate and better control of the L3 & R3 sticks and give us some option to hook up the PS4 controller and I can give this 5 stars. Still a great start though!!

  • How to use a controller with this

    By Jerk-182
    Create a separate account which takes about 5 minutes and login on the PS4. Login to that account with this app and then turn on your controller. Choose your main account and you’re good to go.
  • Omg thank you PlayStation

    By somberlink
    Great with the gamevice
  • Has so much potential !

    By RickymRtin
    Sluggy 😩😩 but i can tell it’s gonna get better !
  • Great job and has lots of potential

    By MercuryTinyLu
    It's is amzing and works great on my iPhone. I wouldn't recommend play games like ”call of duty” which requires press multiple buttons at the same time. In the future updates, I hope to see if we can use the controller and the phone separately. This would allow us to play more combat games. For now, I used it to play games like hand of fate, which works fabulous!
  • Pretty nice for games like NBA 2k

    By Mickey#1
    I use this locally when I am at home. Normally when my luv is taking up the living room TV. I don’t use this app to really play a game but just to set things up like NBA 2k Online Association. So for that one aspect, I love the app. Very responsive and smooth enough to perform the operations I want it to.
  • It won’t work

    By mliteess
    When I open the app it says “Start” when I press on it it takes me to a white screen then says “Cannot Load, Refresh?” when I press “Refresh” it does the same thing over again. I don’t understand why it doesn’t work since I have very good internet
  • Terrible

    By NopeSorry00
    First few days I was able to use the app now it won’t let me remote play anymore. Another trash app made by PlayStation.
  • If Jesus was a phone app

    By beastly4380
    This is the greatest thing ever invented. The technology is unreal, the quality is just as good as it is on the real console. Yes, it can be difficult to manipulate the controls, and yes, the range can be improved, but the concept is phenomenal and the execution is unmatched. I’m so excited to see where this goes in the future
  • Needs Dualshock 4 support

    By Jwarrendb
    Really cool, but if I can’t link my controller then this is worthless.
  • Needs controller support

    By GuruGamma
    It’s not realistic to expect console controls to translate to a screen. Add DS4 support and this app would be nothing short of epic. Seriously I wanted to love this app... and I still could, but not without controller support... and android phones have it... please update it Sony.
