Comment, chat with friends and share your content while on the move
A little over a year ago we launched ‘Communities’ on PS4 – a brand-new, on-console feature designed to help bring like-minded players together.

Since its launch as part of System Software 3.0, Communities has spawned thousands of groups populated by millions of players sharing their experiences, joining forces in online play or reposting their best moments as videos or pictures.

We’re excited to announce that as of tomorrow all these features will now be available on the go, via a brand-new smartphone app for iOS and Android. The new Communities App will function exactly as it currently does on your PlayStation 4, allowing you to create, join and interact with groups from wherever you are.

Find new groups based on games you’ve been playing, or check out groups your friends are currently members of. Whenever you join a group you’ll be able to post questions and comments or join ongoing conversations with others.

The app will also notify you when others respond to your comments or posts or if you’re tagged in somebody else’s message, and notifications can also be tailored for each community. It also interacts seamlessly with the existing PlayStation and PlayStation Messages apps to keep you fully connected with your gaming world, wherever you are.


The PlayStation Communities app also functions as a handy companion even at home, allowing you to continue group conversations, or hunt down additional party members while you’re still gaming.

Download the PlayStation Communities app tomorrow, along with the latest updates for the PlayStation and PlayStation Messages apps to get the very most from your gaming experience.

Not so sure about this. So now we need 3 apps to the manage the social side of playstation?? And to think Sony wants to enter the mobile gaming market.

Edit: This launches today.
