This is a Port of the Official PS4 Remote Play App for Android. it should work on any device running Android Kitkat or higher.

Tested on my Moto G and Hudl2 works great.

root required for proper controller support.

Do you have to buy the controller app?

I am guessing there isn't much point I. this if I have a vita? Got my ps4 yesterday.

The app can't even find my ps4.

mine worked but it only acts as a controller but also shows the screen, would prefer if I could only see the screen and use my normal controller

Having problems forwarding ports on my home hub 3 ffs.

Does this actually work and will it allow me to play the ps4 viewing the screen on my tablet and using my dualshock 4?

Not unless you have a 8-10" tablet tbh.

The app just keeps searching for the PS4, probably because I don't have the ports open now I'm on Lollipop. Struggling with the home hub.

Im using my Z3 so no need for rooting but it works exceptionally well with the DS4 connected through Bluetooth. I was getting connection issues to start with but turning location services off on the Z3 certainly helped.

I didn't have to faf opening ports on the router or anything although my PS4 is wired so that should help with the connection.

check out the work around for using a ds4 . I would imagine more will come too.

Doesn't work with my Dreamcast...... Definitely cold

no but root is required if you want the offical controller app to work.

if you have set up secondary accounts on your ps4 and you want to use this as an alternate screen in your home you can just use the controller like normal, as long as its within range of your ps4.

If you cant find your system try pairing it on your ps4 in remote play settings.

Also to make things work smoother disable in remote play settings on your ps4 the addhoc ( remote play without a router setting )

I don't have a secondary account no. Just primary. I just want to use my tablet as a second screen and use the dualshock within range of the console. How do I set this up then?

Thanks. So why do you need to set up a secondary account I don't get it? Can you delete it afterwards?

I just installed the app but it can't find the PS4? Think I need to add ports to my home hub which I'm not happy about...

you need the second account so when your controller logs in it won't disconnect the remote play.

Can't get it to connect to my s4

I just can't get my Nexus 7 to connect to the PS4 whatever I do. I don't get it.

Works a treat on my Samsung Note 10.1, this kind of eliminates PS TV now if you have a mhl connector.

NOTE FOR LOLLIPOP USERS:
It seems remote play has issues connecting to the PS4 on Lollipop, in order to fix this you must forward the correct ports on your router
TCP 9295
TCP 9293
UDP 9296-9297

I tried that, unless I'm doing that wrong?

Do you assign the ports to the ps4 or the tablet?

Using a home hub.

i would imagine the tab, but it would not hurt to assign to both

another use would be to use your phone as a second controller!

yeah that looks right, just for test purposes have you tried to enable dmz, obviously this will knock the firewall out of your router so you will want to re-enable it

Tried that, the remote play app still can't connect...

sorry jay im stumped.

I managed to get it working on my old HP TouchPad, but not playable.

Working on my Xperia Z Ultra, but treats the handset like another controller. Is there something I'm doing wrong to get it to display the game/ps4 image?

got it working on my samsung s5. works brilliantly. just need to get the controller connected to my phone now. any help?
