Sony launches PlayStation Communities app for Android and iOS


Sony has just released its third PlayStation-related mobile application, which is called Communities. The new application is available for free on both the Android and iOS platforms.

According to developers, PlayStation Communities is supposed to make it easier “to stay in touch with your fellow PS4 gamers while away from the console.” This means that it will only work with PlayStation 4 consoles, not with previous generations.

PlayStation Communities works like a hub where you can find players who have similar interests and preferences. For example, the application should allow you to join parties and launch into games with other members who have Communities installed on their devices.

You can even talk to them within the application. PlayStation Communities comes in handy when you can’t find enough players for a raid, as the app may help you fill out your party.

Furthermore, you will also be able to see community profiles, view a list of communities that you are already part of, as well as see who else is in your community. Obviously, you can discover additional communities that might suit your interests.

PlayStation Communities if available for free to download on both Android and iOS platforms, but it hasn’t been uploaded to Google Play and App Store yet. According to developers, both apps will be up for grabs in the next couple of hours.

Android Nougat for Moto Z and Moto Z Force is officially coming to the modular smartphone duo this week, but there’s more to this update than meets the eye.

Both are also becoming the first phones to support the new Google Daydream View VR headset outside of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL.

So in addition to enjoying new functionality like splitscreen view and inline replies to notifications, virtual reality is coming to the Moto Z family in a big way.

Android 7.0 Nougat with Google Daydream support is rolling out to the Moto Z and Verizon-exclusive Moto Z Force now through the end of this week, according to Motorola.

Today’s update gives the Google Daydream platform a whole new audience, one that’s already into tinkering with phone-transforming accessories via MotoMods.

While the Moto team never officially commented on VR headset compatibility before this, the moves makes sense for the Moto Z and Moto Z Force.

Both Android phones have beautiful, pixel-rich Quad HD displays with Super AMOLED panels, seemingly built for VR. Conversely, 1080p screens are not.
