How to play PS4 games on your Android device – [Video]

How to play PS4 games on your Android device – [Video]

One of the perks of owning a PS4 is the remote play functionality that the console offers. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Remote Play, here’s a quick look. The Remote Play feature lets users cast their consoles content on any external device such as a laptop, tablet and even a smartphone. Till now, the feature only worked on certain Sony devices and required other phones to be rooted for the app to work. As of today, things are about to change thanks to our friends at XDA developers who have come up with a modified version of the app that runs on any device running Android 4.0 or higher. Just follow these few simple steps and you’ll be good to go: On your Android device, go to Settings > Security and turn on Unknown Sources Visit XDA-Developers and download the modified PS4 Remote Play app When the download finishes, go to Downloads on your device and tap the Remote Play apk file Follow the on-screen instruction to install the app Turn on your PS4 Open the Remote Play and tap Next Log into you PSN account The application will then connect to your PS4 Once the connection is made, you’ll see the content from your PS4 on your Android device with a virtual controller below it. If you rotate your device to landscape mode, the PS4 content will rotate and fill the display with the controls overlaid on top. While the PS4 Remote Play feature works perfectly fine, it can be a bit slow and laggy at times if your WiFi network is bogged down. For best performance, we recommend that your PS4 is wired into your router. There is also the option to reduce the stream resolution in the PS4 Remote Play app on your Android device. So the next time you’re in the mood to play but the rest of the family has taken over the TV, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. For those of you who give this a try, do share your experiences with us in the comments below. Cheers!! Source:...

Consume less data on Chrome using Google Data Saver – [How-to Guide]

With a continuous rise in mobile data usage in recent times, the fear of consuming your entire data plan keeps looming in your mind. For this, Google has come up with a good solution that lets you reduce the amount of data Chrome uses on your Android mobile device, computer, or Chromebook by using Data Saver. Please note that Data Saver isn’t available for iPhones or iPads. How Data Saver works When you use Data Saver, most of your web traffic goes through Google servers before being downloaded to your device. Less data gets downloaded to your device, because Google servers will compress it. Note: Even with Data Saver, you won’t reduce the amount of data you’re downloading when you’re on secure pages, whose addresses start with https, or Incognito pages. With Data Saver turned on: Some websites might not be able to accurately determine your location. Some images might look a little fuzzy. Internal websites, such as your company’s internal sites, might not load. Sites that your mobile carrier uses to authenticate and bill you might not work. For example, you might have trouble logging in to your mobile phone provider’s website. Local settings will be ignored if you manually modified your /etc/hosts file. Turn on Data Saver Android device Open the Chrome app . Tap More Settings. Under “Advanced,” tap Data Saver. Slide the switch ON. You can switch this off at any time. Computers and Chromebooks You can use the Data Saver extension if you’re running Chrome version 48 or higher. Turn on Data Saver: Install the Data Saver extension from Chrome Web Store. Data Saver should be turned on by default. If it’s not, click Turn On Data Saver. Turn off Data Saver: Open Chrome. In the top right, click Data Saver . Click Turn Off Data Saver. Safer Chrome browsing on mobile devices When you turn on Data Saver for your phone or tablet, Chrome uses Safe Browsing technology to protect you from malware and phishing attacks. Chrome will warn you if you’re about to visit a dangerous site. Safe Browsing is always available on Chrome for your computer and Chromebooks. Source:...

Infinix Hot 2 – Unboxing [Video]

Infinix Hot 2 is the third device to be launched by Infinix Mobility this year. It is the only device which comes with Android 5.1 out of the box, not only that it has a perforated back which provides better grip with one hand use. Also, the Hot 2 comes with a 2,200 mAh battery, which is removable (unlike the previous two devices). That being said, Infinix has confirmed that, they are going to take out a 3,000 mAh battery for it as a separate accessory in the future. Sounds great right? On the hardware front the Hot 2 comes with a 5 inch 720p display and 1.3GHz Quad Core processor, 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory. The device currently comes in 3 colors, Gold, White and Black. Two new colors Red and Blue will be available soon, but only for a Limited period. One thing to note though is that the Hot 2 comes in two variants, a 1GB version and a 2GB version, for PKR 9,999 and PKR 11,399 respectively.
