PlayStation App Gets a Facelift; PS4 Second Screen Gets a Separate App

Sony has revamped the experience of its PlayStation App, with a completely new design, to help you control your PlayStation Experience from your smartphone.

Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a new version of the PlayStation App, numbered 1.17.11.

This is actually a rather large update, as it completely revamps the looks of the app, making its use simpler and more intuitive across the board, but it also lighter, by removing some features.

The new tab at the bottom helps you easily access common features like “What’s New,” “Friends,” and “Profile.” This makes accessing them faster.

Access to other features like the store, code redemption and more has also been made easier.

On the other hand, speaking of removed features, Live from PlayStation has been removed, and the same goes for the second screen functionality that has been moved to a completely new “PS4 Second Screen” app. This new app can be found here for Android and here for iOS.

If you already have the old PlayStation App, you just need to update it. If you don’t, you can find it here for Android and here for iOS.
