Sony’s PS4 Remote Play makes its way to unrooted Android devices

Sony introduced Remote Play for their newer Xperia devices, letting users stream PlayStation 4 games to their smartphone. The games work with a Dualshock 4 controller, so you’ll get a near-console quality experience on a portable, smaller screen. This feature was obviously only intended for Sony devices, but thanks to some clever work by developers over at XDA, you can get it working on just about any modern Android device.

The port of Remote Play works on any Android device running Android 4.4 and up (although there are some kinks on Lollipop), but it looks like a few people are getting it to work on software as far back as Android 4.2. Best of all, you can get it up and running even on non-rooted devices, which is pretty weird for a hack like this. If you have a rooted device, the process works a little smoother, but it’s not a requirement.
