Sony is yet to launch its PlayStation 4 but the Japanese tech firm has already made the PlayStation app available across North America and Europe for both iOS and Android device users. The app which is compatible with phones and tablets is aimed to enable the users to view and interact with Sony's PlayStation eco-system.
Sony PlayStation App for iOS and Android devices is, in fact, designed to help the PlayStation users to connect with their PS4 console from anywhere.
As said earlier, the app enables users to connect with their PlayStation Network friends, see what they are playing, compare trophies and also chat with them. Through the app, users can also accept and send multi-player invites. Currently the app features chat facilities with friends and in the future it is also expected to include Twitter and Facebook integration.
Users can also receive notifications, game alerts and invitations on the app and can use their phone as a mobile keyboard to enter text on your PS4.
Moreover, the best feature of the app is, it allows the user to browse the PlayStation store, check the prices and even purchase the game titles through the app. The purchased games are then pushed to your PS4 and downloaded.
The PlayStation App is a similar attempt as Microsoft's Xbox SmartGlass app but both have their unique features.
The new PS4 Companion app was first announced way back in February when Sony announced their PS4. But now the app is available in North America and Europe. Even in Google Play Store India, the app has already been listed. However, it is expected to roll out globally alongside the launch of Sony PlayStation 4, which will take place soon this month.
