Today we are excited to announce that Backbone One – PlayStation Edition, an officially licensed smartphone controller, is now available for iOS and Android users worldwide.

The reception we got when we announced recently Backbone One – PlayStation Edition for iOS was incredibly exciting. We’ve seen many gamers take advantage of the PS Remote Play app, which allows players to play PS4 and PS5 games streamed from their console with Backbone One – PlayStation Edition while they’re out and about or anywhere in the home.* This should quickly has become one of the most popular gaming features on the BackBone platform.

We’ve heard the same best-in-class gaming experience from Android users time and time again, so we’re excited to offer Backbone One PlayStation Edition for Android the same.

We worked closely with the PlayStation team on the look and feel of Backbone One – PlayStation Edition for Android. Colors, materials and finishes are inspired by the design of the DualSense wireless controller, including transparent buttons on the front. It matches the look of the PS5 console, and if you already have a Pulse 3D wireless headset, you can connect it directly to the Backbone One via the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The latest update to the PS Remote Play app on Google Play makes it easy to set up and play with Backbone One – PlayStation Edition. If you have broadband access and a PS5 or PS4 console, connect your iPhone or Android device to the Backbone One and instantly start playing PS5 and PS4 games with the power of the PS Remote Play app – whether you’re out and about even in another part of the house*. For more information, visit the PlayStation Remote Play website.

When using the PlayStation app, players can double-tap the Settings button on Backbone One – PlayStation Edition to easily access the app. Additionally, the latest update to the PlayStation app will also support controller-based navigation in landscape orientation for an optimized user experience.

Available games may vary by region.

Backbone One also works great with Google Play and App Store games, as well as other game streaming services that support controllers, and can be used with games like Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, Diablo Immortal and more.

Players can download the Backbone app for a personalized PlayStation experience. In the app, you’ll see a variety of PlayStation integrations, such as custom glyphs representing iconic PlayStation figures and the ability to browse through hundreds of game titles. The Backbone app for Android brings all your games together in one place, including games from the app store and supported game streaming services. Players will also find a separate line in the Backbone app with new releases and updates from PlayStation.

Finally, Backbone One PlayStation Edition will soon be available in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, in addition to the existing availability in the US, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

We hope Android owners will enjoy the PlayStation app, PS Remote Play and native mobile games with Backbone One – PlayStation Edition.

*Playing games to other devices requires a PS4 or PS5 console, the PS Remote Play app, and a PlayStation Network account. PS Remote Play can be used with mobile data or Wi-Fi. Broadband Internet with a speed of at least 5 Mbps is required. For PS Remote Play to work best, a high-speed connection of at least 15 Mbps using Wi-Fi or a mobile data connection is recommended. Games that require PS VR, PS VR2 or other peripherals such as the PlayStation Camera are not compatible with PS Remote Play. Availability of DualSense features such as audio output and haptic effects depends on using PS Remote Play on Android, PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad, and some features may not be available.
