Gamers who own a Chromecast with Google TV 4K and other select Google TV devices are receiving a pretty interesting update today, thanks to the launch of PS Remote Play app support.


PS Remote Play allows PlayStation 4 and 5 owners to stream games from their console to other devices, including phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. While Android was already supported, that support has now expanded to include Google TV devices as well.

Sony has today confirmed that the PS Remote Play app is now available to download on Android TV devices running Android TV 12. Technically, Sony is confirming the Chromecast with Google TV 4K and the Sony Bravia XR A95L smart TV as the only supported Android TV devices at launch.


However, we can confirm that the PS Remote Play app listing on the Google Play Store also shows the Chromecast with Google HD and the Onn 4K Streaming Box as supported as well. How well the app will work on these devices without being confirmed as “verified devices” remains to be seen, but the app is available to download on these devices.

To get started, simply search for the PS Remote Play app in the Apps section of the supported Android TV/Google TV player and install the app. Alternatively, remotely install the app from the web version of the Google Play Store.

For those already using PS Remote Play, other enhancements and improvements were announced today as well. For example, new voice command options, the ability to assign a second controller to one account as an assist controller, and support for compatible Dolby Atmos-enabled audio devices.


Other upgrades include the ability to mute the PS5 beep sound, use an M.2 SSD with a maximum capacity of 8TB, see a Share Screen preview image before entering a party, and react to messages with emojis in the PS app on Android and iOS.

With PS Remote Play support now rolling out to streaming players and smart TVs for the first time, it probably won’t be too long before support is extended to other popular TV platforms.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
