PS4 System Software Update Set to Launch This Week

On its blog, PlayStation has announced that software update, version 7.00, for PlayStation 4 is going to be launched this week all around the world. The update enables you to use Remote Play on all Android devices, and also it improves the Party feature.

The update of Remote Play will allow you to stream select PS4 games on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or higher. All you need to do to use this feature is to download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Google Play store.

Also, if you update your device to Android 10, iOS 13, iPadOS 13, or macOS Catalina (which will be released in October), you will be able to use your DualShock 4 wireless controller via Bluetooth for Remote Play on an Android, iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

When it comes to the Party feature update, it involves an increase in the maximum number of party users from 8 to 16, better network connectivity and audio quality. Also, the Party App will have a new Chat Transcription feature, which supports US English and will transcribe what you're saying and display it on the PS4 Second Screen mobile app. Also, you will have the option to enter some text that will be read aloud to other party members. However, the chat transcription feature will only be available to users in the US. It is not revealed if it will become available worldwide in the future.
