In early March, Sony had announced that its next major firmware update for the PlayStation 4 will its Remote Play feature to Windows and Mac-based PCs. The feature will allow one to stream and play their PS4 games on their PC without being physically present in front of their console.
Well, the Japanese giant today announced that it will start rolling out this firmware update to all PlayStation 4 users from tomorrow. The firmware has been under beta testing for more than a month now, but the ability to stream games to Mac was missing from it.
Once you install the system software v3.50 update on your PS4 tomorrow, you will have to download and install the Remote Play installer on your Mac as well.
The Remote Play feature in PS4 will work with all Macs running OS X 10.10 or 10.11. Depending on the configuration of your Mac and your internet connection’s bandwidth, you will be able to stream the games in 360p, 540p and 720p resolution; and at up to 60fps. Your DualShock 4 controller need to be connected to your Mac using a USB cable so that it can act as a game controller.
