There are few things that feel as bad as being in the middle of a game you’re really into and having to leave the house to spend a few days away. However, the good news is that both Xbox with Game Pass and PlayStation games allow us to continue our games from our mobile.

Below I’ll tell you how you can play PS5 from your Android phone both inside and outside the home thanks to the console’s remote play. It’s a super simple setup and the quality of service has improved a lot in recent years. Of course, you have to have a good data plan and an adequate speed.

Your PS5 on mobile both inside and outside the home

First things first, and that’s differentiating between PlayStation remote play and other forms of mobile streaming. The reason is that streaming play doesn’t require us to have a system at home playing the game locally. An example is Amazon Luna or Xbox Cloud Computing.

We simply pay for the subscription and can play whatever is available at the time. With PS5 remote play or Steam Link, things change. In this case, it is necessary that we have hardware in which the content is being played locally while sending the signal to the mobile phone.

Once the introductions are made, activating PS5 remote play to have a PS5 away from home is as simple as it gets. The first thing you need to do is download the app, which you can do from this link to the Play Store.

Once installed, it will ask for your PSN details. This is the same email and password you use to access the PSN on your PlayStation, so you should have no problem and then we should go to the console.

It’s something that’s indicated in the app itself, so it’s not to be missed. Inside your PS5, you need to go to the settings icon at the top right, the one that looks like a gear, and search for ‘System’. Inside, navigate until you find ‘Remote Play’ and make sure that the ‘Enable Remote Play’ box is… Activated.

Following the instructions in the application is very simple, but there is one more step that you must do on your mobile to be able to play, really, from wherever you want on your PS5. And that’s enabling remote use via data connection.

To do this, in the phone app, click on the gear icon that you will find at the top right and then on ‘Mobile data’. There it allows us to activate the use of remote play by data and configure the quality. By default it is set to ‘Standard’, which consumes about 2.5 GB per hour of streaming, but we can consume slightly less in low quality or up to 6.8 GB in optimal quality.

This way, you can play your PS5 away from home whenever you want and from your Android phone. Now, there is a very interesting point to keep in mind. You don’t need to leave your console on to be able to play away from home. The trick is to let it sleep so that it uses less energy than it is on, and still be able to access it from anywhere using mobile data.

Simply, in the console’s shutdown options, select “Go into Sleep Mode” and you’re good to go. In this way, you can play your PS5 from your mobile phone, both at home connected to the same WiFi network as the console, and outside the home, using another WiFi network or the data in your tariff.

And yes, as we said, the quality of the service has improved a lot over the years and even with the digital controls of the mobile, the experience is very good. In this way, we won’t need to carry a DualSense with us, since the digital buttons will appear on the screen and here it depends on each one, but I play great action and 2D platform games this way, but shooters make me feel sorry for them.
