PS4 Remote Play is now possible on a number of non-Sony Android smartphones.

Sony's official PS4 Remote Play app allows owners of supported Xperia handsets to stream games from their console. However, Polygon reports that an unofficial version of the app brings this functionality to a wide range of non-Sony smartphones – with the Samsung Galaxy S3 demoed in this video.

Effectively, this lets users play titles such as The Last of Us, Destiny and the upcoming The Order: 1886 from anywhere where there is an internet connection. An on-screen virtual button overlay means that no peripherals are required, although controller support is offered – albeit with an extra layer of technical tinkering.

As the app is unofficial it's not as simply as simply downloading it from Google Play, but there are guides out there for those with the technical nous.
