How To Set Up PS4 Remote Play On Windows And Mac

PlayStation has finally released an update that allows Windows and Mac users to stream games on their PS4 through their computer screens.

First of all, users should check that they have the required components and devices: a computer to stream content into; a PS4 and “Dualshock” 4 wireless controller; a USB cable; an account on the Sony Entertainment Network; and a high-speed internet bandwidth at about 12 Mbps for both download and upload speeds.

For Windows users: a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system (OS) of either Windows 8.1 or Windows 10; an Intel Core i5-560M Processor 2.67 GHz or faster; free storage of about 100 MB or more; RAM of 2 GB or more; a minimum of 1024 x 768 screen resolution or higher; an updated sound card; and USB ports.

For Mac users: an OS of either OS X Yosemite or OS X El Capitan; an Intel Core i5-520M Processor 2.40 GHz or faster; free available storage of 40 MB or more; RAM of 2 GB or more; and USB ports.

If the user’s systems pass all requirements, they can now download either the update for Windows PC or Mac. On their computers, users should run the downloaded installation file and follow onscreen instructions. If the application asks for additional software to download, which are needed to run PS4 Remote Play, onscreen prompts will pop up with instructions on how to do so.

Once all that is done, head on over to your PS4 system and boot it up for initial setup.

1. Enable Remote Play by selecting “Settings,” then “Remote Play Connection Settings,” then check the box beside “Enable Remote Play.”

2. Assign your PS4 as your primary system by selecting “PlayStation Network/Account Management” under “Settings,” then “Activate as Your Primary PS4,” then select “Activate.”

3. Lastly, if users want to start Remote Play while their PS4s are in rest mode, they can go to “Power Save Settings” in their “Settings” menu, then “Set Features Available in Rest Mode,” then select the boxes beside “Stay Connected to the Internet” and “Enable Turning On PS4 from Network.”

If some of the options mentioned above do not appear, users should check that they are running the latest firmware of PS4 or at least version 3.5.

To use Remote Play, PS4 users can either boot up or put their console system to rest mode. By using a USB cable, they can connect a controller to the computer. Users should now run the Remote Play application on their system then click “Start.”

They will then have to log in their Sony Entertainment Network accounts for their PS4 system; after which, they can finally start playing their PS4 through their computer monitors.
