Introducing the redesigned PlayStation App and new PS4 Second Screen App

Get the new PlayStation and PS4 Second Screen Apps now from Google Play and Apple App Store

Over the last few years we’ve made a number of changes to our family of Apps, as part of an ongoing mission to help our players get the most out of their PS4 – whether at home or on the go.

In this spirit, we are pleased to announce that the PlayStation App has a new, improved altogether more intuitive design, making it easier than ever to stay connected to your PS4, friends, and the games you love to play.

For instance, new tabs at the bottom of the screen make it easier and faster to switch between viewing who’s online, checking notifications, and keeping up with the latest activities and posts from your friends and the PlayStation community.

The updated interface also features a new central PS button, which is similar to the well-received PS4 Quick Menu, which ensures the Apps key features are never more than a touch away.

From the PS Button menu you’ll have instant access to a whole host of features, from browsing the PS Store and remotely managing PS4 downloads to checking out upcoming events.

For a more seamless experience between our family of Apps, you can also access PlayStation Messages (Apple Store / Google Play), PlayStation Communities (Apple Store / Google Play) and the all new PS4 Second Screen App (Apple Store / Google Play) via the PS Button menu too.

For a more bespoke, tailored user experience the PS4 Second Screen now has its own dedicated App too (Apple Store / Google Play). Accessible via the PS Apps quick menu, you can use PS4 Second Screen to navigate your PS4’s menu, use the on-screen keyboard and even view extra content in compatible games, such as map and radars.

If you don’t already have PS App installed in your mobile devices, it’s free to download through the App Store on iOS 9.0 or later and through Google Play on Android 4.1 or later.
