Find out how to make the most of PlayStation®Plus online storage on PlayStation®4 consoles.
PlayStation Plus online storage lets you save your game progress to the cloud and pick up your adventures on any other console with that game installed.
Automatic uploads add saved data from your primary PS4 console to online storage:
*Your saves won’t auto-upload from a PS4 console that is temporarily activated on your account. Always remember to manually upload your saves when playing on a friend's console.
PS4 console: upload to online storage
If automatic uploads aren't set up, or you want to upload a save from a friend's PS4 console, you will need to start uploads manually:
If you sign in to PSN on a friend’s PS4 console or PS5 console, you can pick up from the last save on your online storage. Don’t forget to manually upload your saves as they won’t upload automatically from your friend’s PlayStation console.
If you get a new PlayStation console, just sign in to PlayStation Network and download your saved data.
These games can be downloaded and played on more than one type of PlayStation console. For example, if a game is compatible with both PS4 consoles and PS Vita, you can start playing at home, upload your save and continue later on your PS Vita.
If you subscribe to PlayStation Now and pick up a game that you previously played on a PS4 console, you can start from the last point you saved to online storage.
