A PlayStation 5 update makes it possible to stream PS5 games to Chromecast via Google TV.
A significant software update for the PlayStation 5 has been released by Sony, adding a number of noteworthy improvements and functionality. The addition of PS5 Remote Play functionality to gadgets running Android TV OS 12 or higher is one of the major highlights. Players who own a PlayStation 5 console can now stream PS5 games on their Android TV screens thanks to this update.
The PS5 Remote Play app now supports Android TV running version 12 or later in addition to PCs, Macs, and Android/iOS mobile devices. Although it requires a physical PlayStation 5 console and is not cloud-based streaming, it opens up new opportunities for gaming on bigger screens.
Both the Sony BRAVIA XR A95L smart TV and Chromecast with Google TV (4K) have received formal certification from Sony to support this feature. The phrase “so far,” however, implies that further compatible devices may be added in the future.
Users must download and install the PS5 Remote Play software on a compatible device and sign in with the same PlayStation Network account they use for their PlayStation 5 system in order to stream PS5 games to an Android TV. Sony advises a minimum of 5 Mbps for streaming, however 15 Mbps is recommended for an improved experience.
The PlayStation companion app for Android and iOS users has been improved by Sony in addition to the expansion of PS5 Remote Play compatibility. Users can now preview someone’s Screen Share before joining a party, reply to messages with emoticons, and use new voice commands designed specifically for the PlayStation 5, among other improvements. The voice commands “Hey PlayStation, help” and “Hey PlayStation, what’s new?” can be used to access resources for help and information about new features and PlayStation Plus monthly games, respectively. It’s important to note that only users in the United States and the United Kingdom can currently use these voice commands.
If it hasn’t already, the PlayStation 5 firmware update is currently rolling out globally and should soon reach your console. By going to Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings, users can manually check for the update.
