To get the best experience from Share Play, you and your friend will need a high-speed internet connection.
The surrounding conditions of the home network of each player may also impact the connection. As a guide, a minimum connection speed of at least 2Mbps is recommended. To check your upload speed, please check with your network service provider.
Tips to improve your network connection:
- It is recommended that you use a LAN cable to connect your PlayStation 4 system to the network.
If you are using a Wi-Fi connection, place the PlayStation 4 system and the router closer together, and make sure there are no obstructions between them.
- Other devices on your network might be using a large amount of bandwidth. Wait until they have finished.
- Check the connection status of the PS4 in Settings > Network > Test Internet Connection.
