Sony Brings Game Captures to PlayStation App on the Mobile

The PS App gets a nifty, new feature.


PlayStation is now expanding its Game Captures feature on the PlayStation App to North and South America. The feature is currently live in Canada and Japan, and it looks like the feature should be available in the near future globally.

The Game Captures feature essentially allows players to upload screenshots and video clips from their PS5 console to the cloud. Players will then be able to view them for 14 days from the date of upload via the new Game Captures feature of the PlayStation App.

Players can share captures from PlayStation to their Game Pass or to supported social media apps. Screenshots and video clips can be downloaded from the app to the mobile’s internal storage within the 14-day cloud storage period.

Game Captures Feature for PlayStation App Rolling Out to North and South Americas

The Game Capture feature isn’t currently available in India so it would appear that Indian PS fans might have to wait on this for a while.

To enable the feature, all players must do is enable auto uploads from the Captures and Broadcast settings on their PS5. The feature looks like it will be available only for the PlayStation 5, but it seems like a pretty nifty feature for the PS4 as well.

The PlayStation App has been receiving all sorts of new functionality as of late and is a solid companion to the consoles. It will be interesting to see how SIE increases its utility in the months to come and if it becomes more integral to the PS experience.

Reports suggest that SIE might currently be working on a service similar to the Game Pass, codenamed ‘Project Spartacus’. If that is the case, then the PS App might become far more integral as a Game Pass-like service might open up avenues for Cloud.
