Sony did say that their PlayStation 4 companion app would be hitting both the App Store and Google Play today and just like they promised, it arrived in the early morning hours. For those picking up a PlayStation 4 this week, you’ll probably want to download the new PlayStation App which allows you to manage many aspects of the PlayStation Network.
The main draw of the app is that you’ll be able to stay in constant contact with your friends on PSN and see what they are up to. You’ll be able to see what games they are playing, their progress, and which trophies they have obtained. You’ll even be able to send and receive messages from them. Other features include being able to browse the PlayStation Store, check out current PlayStation related news, and being able to connect to your PS4.
Right now the app is pretty limited though due to PS4 not being out yet, but hopefully we’ll be able to try this out this Friday when PS4 is released.
