Find out how to use Share Play to share your screen, pass over the controls, or play together with a friend.
You can use Share Play to play with a friend as if you're in the same room. It allows you to invite a visitor to view your screen for up to 60 minutes a session. Share Play allows you to hand over your controller to a visitor so they can play instead. You can also invite your visitor to play a local multiplayer session over the Internet, even if the game doesn't support online multiplayer. The visitor doesn't need to own the game to use Share Play.
Your game screen appears on the visitor's screen, and the visitor plays as you. You need to be a PlayStation®Plus member to use this play mode.
To get the best experience from Share Play, both you and your friend will need a high-speed internet connection. The conditions surrounding the home network of each player may also have an impact on internet connectivity. As a guide, a minimum connection speed of at least 2 Mbps is recommended. To check your upload speed, please ask your network service provider for details.
