If you are using PS4 Remote Play and you get interrupted by an event on your Xperia™ device, for example, an incoming call or an unexpected disconnection from the Wi-Fi® network, the PS4 Remote Play app closes and the connection between your Xperia™ device and the PS4™ console is stopped. Other examples of such interruptions include the battery running out of power or the opening of another app on your Android™ device. The behaviour of the PS4™ depends on the implementation of the game, but generally, it is implemented to pause. Depending on your power save settings, the PS4™ goes into standby mode or is automatically turned off after a certain period of inactivity.
When text messages are received by your Xperia™ device while you are using PS4 Remote Play you get notified by a vibration on the Xperia™ device. The behaviour is the same as that exhibited when notifications arrive while the screen is active during normal usage of an Xperia™ device that runs on Android™ version 4.4 or higher. You are also notified when the battery is low.
To restart PS4 Remote Play after an interruption
- From the Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.
- Find and tap PS4 Remote Play.
