What is PS4 Remote Play?

PS4 Remote Play for PS4 lets you stream and play your PS4 games, switch between games, view your PS4 home screen, and browse the console's menus, on any compatible device that's connected to your broadband network.

That means you can start playing with your PS4 connected to a TV, pause your game, and access the PS4 Remote Play app on your chosen device, and your game will be there, ready to keep playing from exactly where you left it. Or you can switch on your PS4 and start playing directly from the app, with no need to ever switch on your TV.
