The PS5 is now worldwide, with a far more capable GPU and CPU than that in the PS4 Pro and faster game-loading speed thanks to its internal NVMe SSD. If you already have one, you may also be concerned about whether or not it is compatible with smartphones. Well, the short answer is: yes. Though Sony hasn’t officially announced compatibility between their console controllers and modern smartphones, anecdotal evidence has shown they do pair with phones, except that the Xbox controller may not support iOS.
Thanks to the Remote Play, you can enjoy your PS5 games even when you don’t have access to the living room TV. You can use this feature to stream your next-generation games to your smartphone. Note that it is simply a feature rather than a service, which is different from how you can play Xbox Series X games on your mobile device through Game Pass. So now we’re going to tell you how to connect PS5 to your phone.
How to set up Remote Play
Your phone needs to be updated to at least Android 7.0 or iOS 12.1. And your PS5 should be updated to the latest software system. Ensure the WiFi network has at least 5Mbps speed that both console and phone are connected to.
Then enable Remote Play on your PS5 console via Settings>>System>>Remote Play. In the Google App Store, download the PS Remote Play. Log into your Playstation Network account and your PS5 console should appear on the screen.
Connect you Playstation Controller
It’s OK if you want to connect a PS4 DualShock 4 or PS5 DualSense controller to your phone, just make sure the console is updated to the latest version of Android 11 or iOS 14. There are two methods for connection: via Bluetooth and via cable.
First, you need to put your DualSense controller in pairing mode by holding the PS button on the controller until blue lights start flashing around the center of the controller. You’ll then notice “Wireless Controller” on your phone. Tap it to connect. You can also connect both devices via cable, to make life much easier for you.
