Sony Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet get PS4 Remote Play

The Sony Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet are getting a software update to Android 4.4.4 KitKat that brings PS4 Remote Play and a host of other new features.

PS4 Remote Play, which was launched on the Sony Xperia Z3 series last week, lets you play your PlayStation 4 from anywhere when you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the console. It’s the biggest leap in mobile gaming for years.

The software update also adds compatibility for high resolution audio so you can listen to even better music. And all your old MP3 files will sound better too as Sony’s brought its sound enhancement software to the update.

The Z2 and Z2 Tablet will also get all Sony’s latest camera features like AR Fun, which adds more quirky animations to your photos and videos.

And the update includes Ultra STAMINA Mode, which Sony says will let the Xperia Z2 last more than a week on a single charge in standby.

Finally, you’ll now be able to unlock your Xperia Z2 or Z2 Tablet just by having a Sony Bluetooth device nearby. Gadgets like the Sony SmartBand or a Sony Bluetooth Speaker are recognised as trusted, so your device won’t lock when one’s nearby.

The new software started hitting the phone and tablet yesterday, so keep an eye out over the coming weeks for an update. And let us know if you notice anything new that we haven’t mentioned.
