    A new PlayStation 4 firmware update is on the horizon. Releasing later this week is firmware 7.00, which will bring two new improvements to the table: remote play enhancements and larger Party groups. PS4 Remote Play will be usable on any Android device running 5.0 and higher, while the preexisting Remote Play App on iOS has gotten an update to allow for users to have onscreen controls displayed at all times. DualShock 4 controllers can officially connect to any mobile device running Android 10 or iOS 13. The Party function on PlayStation 4 will get an increase from a maximum number of 8 players to 16, while also receiving upgrades to both network and audio quality between communications online.

    Says my 5.0 tablet is unsupported. Maybe the app has an update pending?

    Wow, I didn't think sony actually cared about remote play. But i guess having it on android and ios was better than their own vita system. (had they made a hardware upgrade to 5GHZ wifi maybe) :blink:

    I don't think this update has hit yet, it's "on the horizon".
    I am looking forward to this feature. I ALMOST bought an xperia phone just for this but instead have just been using my Vita to remote play in my house. Works really well with MU-MIMO tech enabled router I've found.

    The funny thing about that.. is alot of folks on temp tend to think ppl are dumb no matter what they say. Its ok I forgive you, you just didn't get my point.
    When you have many channels ranting on about "patching a firmware" that only gives Sony valid info on how to prevent such an exploit. You'll be surprised how gaming companies use YouTube for information. I mean look at Nintendo.

    ...

    You do know many, many of the people who actually work on the exploits (aka not the youtubers that use tools made by them) have very detailed write-ups with everything related to the exploit in a much more comprehensive manner than any of those youtubers you speak of, right? There are much better ways to gather information about that than through the limited understanding most of those youtubers have .

    uh huh but still doesn't teeter away from the fact that you have many ppl including the devs you speak of literally telling/showing Sony how they hacked their shit..

    Doubt there would be another one until way after EOL as devs don't want their exploit chain broken and patched out, as I'm aware private kernel exploits (higher fw) exist already.

    Even then, SONY will patch it out, if another public kernel exploit surfaced in like 5 years. Vita has proved that by dropping support years ago, yet still release a fw update to thwart exploits.

    Well yeah I know that much, thats why I'm hoping 7.0 is patched so a new K-exploit will be a thing. The vita is abit different since there is a way to bypass firmware requirements to play newer games plus even if the vita got updates it didn't have many new games to accommodate it. The updates were to just kill off hacks to those foolish enough to system update. When Flow released his latest cfw support Sony dished an update like less than a day after.

    That too, I know it can't be sheer coincidence that everytime someone announces an exploit or a simple hack
    Sony responds with an update a day later. It happen to Flow and Mathieulh and I forget the 1st dev team that uploaded a pingpong hack via youtube.

    So what's the best remote play? Vita or Android/iOS?

    And a lot of the exploits we've seen are webkit ones. We all know how broken webkit is, despite companies like Nintendo and Sony who continue to use it.
