Sony’s “Remote Play” is a feature that enables all PlayStation 4 users to access their console via an external device. Up until recently, this feature was only available through a PlayStation Vita device or through a smartphone or tablet. It required the user to download the “Remote Play” application from the respective application store and pair the device to their PlayStation 4.

However, with the latest 3.50 software update on the PlayStation 4, one of the biggest changes comes in the form of “Remote Play” availability on either a PC or Mac device. This single change is revolutionary in the gaming front and could pave the way for deeper cross platform integration. If you have a PS4 and a computer around, you might want to give the feature a try by following the video below:

For people who don’t keep their PlayStation 4’s in their room, this feature is very useful but because the PlayStation is streaming content onto your PC, you’ll require a strong internet connection at all times if you want to take advantage of the 720p quality and high bit-rate.

We’re not sure of what the range for such a connection is as of yet but if we do find anything interesting, we will keep you posted. Let us know what you think of Sony’s newest implementation in the comments below and whether or not you’ll be taking advantage of “Remote Play” more often, now that it works on your PC or Mac.
