Sony plans to roll out software release 3.50 for the PlayStation 4 console tomorrow. This impending update will implement a bunch of new features, including the ability to play remotely on a PC or Mac.

As well as Remote Play, version 3.50 will also add the ability to appear offline, notifications when friends come online, user scheduled events, as well as making it easier to connect to and join friends in-game. For Remote Play, you'll need to be rocking either Windows 8.1/OS X 10.10 or later.

The default resolution is 540p, but you can bump it up to 720p if you so wish, while the default frame rate is set to 30fps, but can be raised to the silky smooth 60fps. More details on the update, as well as new features, can be found on the PlayStation blog.

  • My desktop has a better graphics card than my PS4, so why the low resolution? IJS..
  • coz the game runs on ps4 plus it has to stream
  • I feel the same way about the res Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's streaming, not native. Your graphics card has no effect on the resolution. Posted via the Android Central App
  • +1 for Destiny
  • I swear if someone gets butt hurt because of Playstation content on here u.u Posted with ❤love❤
  • Yeah, I actually like it. Posted via Nexus 6 running on any data plan I want
  • I have a PS4 as well so I don't mind. It's kind of out of place but oh well.
  • It's not butt hurt, just...why? I own a PS4 but when I want news or information on it, I go to a gaming website. This type of news is well out of scope for this site and has no bearing on Android. That would be akin to iMore posting about Linux based news or Crackberry posting about WebOS.

  • This is an awesome update! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I love doing this with my Xbox. Lay on the couch playing a game on my laptop while my family watches stuff I have no interest in lol
  • So what kind of hack would be required to get this streaming over the internet? I am assuming when they say streaming they mean locally anyway...
  • No hack needed. Posted via the Android Central App
  • If only they would make an update that let you change what you see on the home screen. I don't care about all your apps Sony! Let me customize it!
  • Does 60fps streaming mean games that run at 30 fps be displayed at 60? I kind of doubt it, but that would be awesome. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I would like to know the size of this update. I'm tired of 10GB updates every other week from COD Black Ops 3 so this better not be a ******* huge file. When I'm ready to play after a long day I don't want to wait 2 hours for a 10 GB update Posted via the Android Central App and my Galaxy S7
  • That's a rather slow Internet connection if it takes 2 hours for just 10 GB of an update. Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's a rather fast Internet connection if it takes just 2 hours for 10 GB of an update.
    Funny how things are different for different people.
