PS4 companion app update adds stream viewing functionality


The PlayStation 4 companion app for Android and iOS devices has been updated. The update includes a number of stability improvements, but the major focus seems to be on the PS4's video-sharing capability.

With a new "Live from PlayStation" feature, app users can tune in to game streams directly from the mobile device; however, the streams don't actually open up in the app itself. Both Ustream and apps either open in their own application or the mobile device browser, which is kind of annoying. I only tested it on iPhone, but Engadget reports the same is true of Android.

The update change-log also notes that notifcations from PS Store are now supported. These notifications will appear under the "What's New" tab. Addtiionally, the app will no longer connect to a PS4 system that is in standby mode.
