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.
  • Minimal use

    By DontHallucinate
    This is a super exciting little gadget, our household doesn’t watch tv so the entertainment equipment has a separate room upstairs. It’s nice being in the kitchen and while I’m making food or laying in bed, I can access my game from my phone and doddle around. It’s great for doing menu work in fallout 76, I played the witness for several hours in bed. And path of exile just came out, sat my couch in my living room and slayed some monsters. Using the screens control (slight delay and my fingers take up most the screen) got tiring and I started googling how I can connect my PS4 wireless duel shock only to discover I can’t. It’s a real bummer, and I feel it’s a really missing of the mark on this app. All in all it works but expect delayed controls as it’s just streaming to your phone. No controller really kills it. But it’s super awesome of fiddle farting through menus. Would be perfect for old school rpgs or any game that doesn’t require precious movements. 4/5 will be my rating. First review of an app. Fun gadget

  • Controller support please

    By nezi03
    Sony you guys are the smartest company around but honestly this is a missed opportunity adding controller support would not only make this the new Sony handheld it would compete against the highly popular switch please consider you will not regret love your consoles tho.
  • It’s ok

    By iLOGIC77
    I say this would be better if you could be able to connect your controller to your phone so u can play but you can’t
  • Why can’t I use it on a different WIFI?

    By ColinSniper5000-
    I’m trying to use the ps4 at a different place and it’s not working! :(
  • Can’t Use

    By MDAskey
    When you first start the app it asks you to login. Then it sends a code via text message for you to enter. The problem is every time you check the text for the code and come back to enter it, the app has you start over again from the beginning. It doesn’t stay on the screen where you enter the code. Needless to say it’s a vicious cycle that leads you nowhere. Can’t even use the app.
  • Good but could improve.

    By UseCodeLachy😂
    I really like the app but it needs improvement. 1 pro and 2 cons: the pro is I’ve heard people complain about how you can’t use a controller and the phone at the same time. They say they want to use the phone as the screen and they can’t. While not being as good, you could use a different account with your controller than with the phone. (This might sound gross) but I’d do that and bring my phone into the bathroom and my controller and grind out some fortnite😂. But you 100% should be able to use streaming devices with it. And also they need to make it portable (like you can connect it once and it will be connected whenever you go in the app). Could be better but still kinda fun.
  • PS4 remote

    By Little je5se
    Gotta say the app is great! Wanted to test a Game worth playing on my iPad so I put in Mortal Kombat 11 and it works amazingly!!! This app is one of my favorites now!
  • 3 1/2 Stars (Rounded-down)

    By K.B.T.
    The few issues I have with the app regard its settings, or lack thereof: 1) Needs an opacity slider for the touchscreen controls; 2) The touchscreen analog sticks need serious adjustments (analog stick size, thumb travel on screen, overall sensitivity and deadzone); 3) Touchscreen controls size scaling, as the entire on-screen controller should be free to make larger and smaller. Several of the instances in these issues regard landscape mode. However, if there was a option to use the portrait mode’s button size in the landscape mode’s controller placement, you probably have a winner.
  • Useless Remote for the Vue and TV/Video app

    By Apple fan 24681012
    My main purpose for downloading this iOS app was to use it while viewing PlayStation Vue or the TV/Video apps on my PS4. Was hoping to listen to streaming videos through my Bluetooth device while the Remote app was open on my phone. Instead once the apps are launched, the remote app is useless. The only thing you can do is touch the PS button to get back to the main screen and navigate between the apps on the main PS4 screen. Can’t use the remote app to control the PS Vue or TV/Video features (pause/playback, switch channels, etc). Need an update.

    Firstly, a huge fan of the concept of this app and have been waiting for something like this for years. THIS APP REQUIRES WORK. There is no way that anyone can spend hours playing on this screen the way that they have made the apps controls. I would recommend that they allow the use of a controller so that the phone would just be used as a display. But i think that you should be able to play via the phone. The response is not snappy. I should be able to use the right analog stick and buttons with ease. But this is not the case. I recommend that they use the movement of the phone to control the directions the player looks. Also the ‘r’ and ‘l’ buttons and hard to use in a quick fashion. It is difficult and unintuitive to use the phone as a remote as it is. The phone is not optimized as a useful controller!
