Sony <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/sony-is-officially-working-on-ps4-remote-play-apps-for-your-pc-and-mac-1309912">announced</a> that it was working on PC-to-PS4 streaming functionality back in November. </p><p>Technically the functionality already exists courtesy of a dubious third-party app called <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/remote-play-software-enables-you-to-play-ps4-games-on-your-pc-1309692">Remote Play PC </a>that uses the PS4's built-in Remote Play software to trick PCs into thinking they're another Sony device, before accepting a stream from the nearby console. </p><p>Sony's decision to officially support streaming to the PS4 gives Mac users a reason to pick the console over the Xbox One, which lacks such compatibility.</p><h3>Requested features</h3><p>PS4 Remote Play for PC/Mac won't be included in the PS4's 3.50 system software update that's set to push onto consoles tomorrow (if you signed up to the closed beta, that is).</p><p>The new system software version adds a host of other features, including an option to be notified when friends sign into PSN, the long-awaited ability to appear offline, a new way place to manage storage in Playstation Plus, and the ability to create user-scheduled gaming events. </p><p>Additionally, Sony has partnered with French video website Dailymotion, which is bringing a live streaming service to the PS4 as part of the update. </p><ul><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/consoles/ps4-vs-xbox-720-which-is-better-1127315">PS4 versus Xbox One: which is better?</a></li></ul><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/247393196057/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4df3b382/sc/27/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/669/f/9809/s/4df3b382/sc/27/mf.gif' border='0'/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/techradar/allnews/~4/OicJg5R6Vj8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
