Sony’s given a few details (and screenshots) of its new, yet to be released, PS4 mobile app, and not only does it look really cool, it does a host of things really well. Or at least promises to.
So, the simple things like comparing profiles and trophies are there, just like the current PS3 app. But this one does much more.
Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed some new details on the EU PS Blog:
- Send and receive messages to friends, who can receive them on either the app or the PS4 itself.
- Ditto for voice messages.
- Receive gaming invitations from a friend on the PS4 to you, on the app.
- Buy a game on the app and have it start downloading automatically to your PS4.
- Watch recorded or live streaming gameplay from a friend’s PS4 console.
- “Second screen” capabilities
Neat, isn’t it? Of course some of these very functions can be done on the Xbox One mobile app, but it’s great to see Sony kicking things up a couple notches in an effort to live up to its “Greatness Awaits” motto.
Here are some screenshots:
