Now, You Can Watch PS4 Livestreams On Your Smart Devices, Through the PlayStation App

Now, You Can Watch PS4 Livestreams On Your Smart Devices, Through the PlayStation App

Sony has updated the PlayStation app for mobile devices, and amongst the throng of changes is a neat feature that allows you to watch your friends play their games on the go. Now how cool is that?

The PlayStation app version 1.60.6 brings “Live from PlayStation” to the app, showing you what your friends are streaming under the apps “What’s New” category. Currently, Ustream videos launch the UStream app while Twitch.tv broadcasts open via the web browser.

Here’s the full change log:

  • The [Live from PlayStation] feature has been added.
  • Playback of video in notifications from PS Store is now supported. These notifications appear under [What's New].
  • This app will no longer automatically connect to a PS4™ system that is in standby mode.
  • Stability has been improved.

I’m actually pleased with this addition to the PlayStation app because I haven’t really used the thing that much.  Maybe now that I can watch my friends play their games while I’m on the go, I’ll launch it a bit more.

Thanks, Sony Rumors.
