Now You Can Play PS4 Games on iPhone and iPad Sony decided to release a PS4 remote play app for iOS, which means the days of questionable remote play are over! 4,5 years after being launched on Android and other platforms, PS4 remote play is now available on iPhones and iPads with the PS4 6.50 update. It’s quite strange that it took so long for Sony to finally release it on iOS, but better late than never, isn't it? In order to play, you need to have: iPhone or iPad, a stable Internet connection (WiFi is good to go), remote play device, and, of course, your favorite PS4 game. All users have to download PS4 Remote play app and then connect consoles via WiFi or manually. The app will display your PS4 home screen and give the full access to your game library. Previously, iOS users were desperate to stream their games using third-party apps such as R-Play for the price of $12. The new app is totally free and available at App Store. As with the other platforms, the idea of the remote play application for iOS is to let you enjoy favorite games “on-the-go” on your mobile device, using on-screen overlay buttons. Unfortunately, Sony confirmed that you cannot use Dualshock PS4 Controllers that come with the console. Instead, users may consider a third-party option. It’s a good start for iPhone. However, lacking access to the Dualshock makes Android and Mac and other platforms better options, at least at this stage.

Sometimes you set up remote play on your PC and prepare for the game only to find out that everything works properly except for the sound. You reboot the system, fix settings and still have nothing. “PS4 remote play no sound”  is not a game we’re fond of, so here are some tips on where to find the solution to this problem. 1. PC confuses your USB adapter with a speaker One of the reasons why the sound on PS4 remote play not working is because of the USB settings. If you’re using a wireless adapter, it may kill all the sounds on your PC, because Windows confuses your USB adapter with a speaker. Do this: on the bottom right side of the screen, you can see the “speakers” icon. Go ahead and hit it with the left click. Here you may see “Speakers USB Audio device”, which is your PS4 controller. For some reasons, your PC reads it as a speaker when you plug in via USB. You have to switch to “Speakers VIA HD Audio” as it is shown below and see if this works for you. You may also try this: go to your control panel > hardware and sound > sound while the adapter is plugged in. Disable the USB as a speaker. This will allow you to use whatever speaker you want (your headset, for example). Use the latest input matter and the official DualShock adapter, which allows you to wirelessly connect to your PC and get full sound without dropping. 2. You’ve started the game without plugging the mic in Sometimes you can start the game and only then plug your microphone in. If there is no sound, restart the game with your adapter unplugged and reinserted. Also, make sure the speaker's volume is turned up.  Don’t forget to check if your microphone is generally working.  3. PC confused your USB adapter with headphones For some reasons, Windows may recognize your remote play as headphones. This problem also usually happens with Mac. Try this: Go to the sound icon in the taskbar and choose “playback devices”. Right click on the headphones and hit “disable”. Tried everything above and nothing happened? If you still have no sound, don’t forget that with Dualshock 4 you have a 1-year warranty period, so there is a possibility to send your device for a free diagnostics.
