The Sony Playstation 4 allows gamers to connect their mobile phones and portable devices to the console. The companion app is available for both Android and iOS devices.

Many PS4 users will be excited to connect their Nexus, iPhone, iPad or other popular mobile device to their PS4 system. The application can be found by searching within Google’s and Apple’s application stores. This Playstation companion app gives gamers options to buy games from the PSN and later download them to their PS3, Vita, or PS4. You can even start downloading to the PS4 immediately after purchasing.

The applications also allow gamers to check social features of the PS4 from the phone, check multiplayer invitations, view other game feeds, and even act as a second screen for supported games.  

Please note that you will need to use the same PSN login on both the PS4 and iOS or Android application. Also be sure that you have the latest version of the app and PS4 system software for best compatibility.
