Sony has updated the PS5 Remote Play app, preparing it for the PS5’s launch and it has revealed that you will be able to remote play from your PS5, with HDR on, providing you have a compatible screen.
An eagle-eyed user on Reddit spotted the option when browsing through the updated application. In order to play PS5 games through Remote Play with HDR, your display will need to be HDR enabled, have the HVEC Video Extension installed from Microsoft, and turn on “Play HDR games and apps” in your Windows Settings. But, if that criteria is met you should be good to go when the PS5 launches.
This HDR support is great news for those who make a lot of use out of Remote Play and ensures they can get the best possible experience whilst streaming. Remote Play was officially confirmed and set up today with PS4 firmware update 8.00 being released.
The PS5 releases on November 12, 2020, in the US and November 19, 2020, in the EU and UK.
