The following features are available on PlayStation®App:

Browse the official PlayStation® website and access information

Users can access the PlayStation® official website to browse through news, blogs and

game information.  The language and content of the website will depend on the country

the user’s Sony Entertainment Network account is registered.

PS4 Second Screen Feature

Users can install PlayStation®App on to their mobile devices to use as a second screen

in supported games.  For example on THE PLAYROOM, a title pre-installed in all

PS4 systems that requires PlayStation®Camera, users can draw pictures on their mobile

device screens and flick them towards the TV.  The images then appear as a 3D object

within the game.

Spectate other PS4 users’ gameplay

When users’ friends upload or begin live streaming their gameplay on PS4 systems, the friends’ activities are displayed on “What’s New” of the PlayStation®App screen.  When users tap on this notification, they can boot pre-installed applications, such as browsers, to spectate the uploaded gameplay.  Users can also post comments on

gameplay screenshots, footage and live streams.  

Purchase game content on PlayStation®Store

Users can purchase game content*2 while away from home and download it directly onto

their PS4, PS3, and PS Vita*3 systems.

Use a mobile device as a simple remote to control the PS4 system

Once installed, users can use their PlayStation®App to control their PS4 system as long as both devices have access to the same Wi-Fi access point.  For example, users can switch their PS4 system to standby mode, startup their PS4 system from standby mode, and use their mobile phone as a keyboard for their PS4 system.

SCE will continuously enrich services and features of PS4, while striving to further expand the PlayStation ecosystem.
