PlayStation App Adds ‘Live From PlayStation’ Integration

playstation

PlayStation’s official app has received its first update — adding several notable features to the service, which functions as a second-screen app and social networking hub for PS4 players.

Chief among the updates is “Live from PlayStation” integration, which allows users to view live streams from Ustream and Twitch — although it is worth pointing out that this service works by redirecting you to an external Web browser — or corresponding live-steaming service app — to watch the footage, rather than streaming it directly within the PlayStation App.

Another key addition is support for video playback in notifications from the PlayStation Store.

The app further improves stability, while developers also note that it will no longer automatically connect users to a PS4 system that is in standby mode.
