In what could be a significant boost for Sony’s flagship TV aspirations, PS Remote Play from Sony Interactive Entertainment, is now available on BRAVIA XR A95L 4K HDR QD-OLED TVs, using the new PS Remote Play app for Android TV.

With PS Remote Play, PlayStation owners have remote gameplay access to their PS5 and PS4 consoles.

Regardless of their location, gamers can play PS5 and PS4 games away from their physical console.

With Sony’s A95L TVs, PS Remote Play also allows gamers to switch between devices and resume their game right where they left off.

Appropriately, the XR A95L 4K HDR QD-OLED TV is one of the first Android TVs to take advantage of the PS Remote Play feature.

Inside CI had an opportunity to test the new feature at an exclusive preview of the A95L and can confirm that it works smoothly with no obvious latency issues.

The feature joins Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode when used with a PlayStation 5, for optimised picture quality while gaming and streaming. Other A95L features include an easy-to-use Game Menu where gamers can tailor their settings to their preferences, such as turning on or off VRR or Motion Blur Reduction.

Sony’s new Game Menu also allows users to increase the brightness in dark areas to better spot objects and opponents, using the Black Equalizer mode. New this year is the ability to customise the size of the screen with the Screen Size feature to concentrate gaming with a smaller, focused screen.

Eagerly anticipated, the A95L boasts an updated Cognitive Processor XR featuring new XR Clear Image technology, which improves noise reduction and clarity with motion.

It also offers Acoustic Center Sync, which synchronises the TV’s audio system with the centre channel of a compatible Sony soundbar turning it into the centre speaker for home theatre audio. The screen also works with Sony soundbars to offer 360 Spatial Sound Mapping, which generates phantom speakers and sound field optimisation. The TV features Acoustic Surface Audio+ with actuators that vibrate to produce sound from the entire screen, perfectly matching what’s on the screen.
