Today, Sony launched the all-new Communities app for Android and iOS. Similar to the Communities tab on your PlayStation 4, the Communities app will allow you to connect with players like yourself.
"Within a Community, you can join parties and launch into games with other Community members, or talk about your shared interests. For instance, if you're having trouble finding players to tackle Destiny's newest raid, Wrath of the Machine, a Destiny community may help you fill out your fireteam," said Sony Interactive vice president of brand marketing John Koller on the PlayStation blog.
Communities joins a number of PlayStation-connected apps for Android and iOS. The list includes the base PlayStation App, PlayStation Messenger, PlayStation Vue, and PlayStation Video. All that's missing is the ability to play PlayStation games on your mobile phone. Wait, the PlayStation 4 Remote Play app allows that too.
Sony wants to make sure players stay tied to the PlayStation ecosystem and in a world where everyone has a smartphone, apps are one way to pull that off. And I'm sure out there somewhere, there's an avid PS4 player who's download every app to their phone. I salute your love and enthusiasm.
