By popular demand, the PlayStation Vue mobile app for Android launches today, giving you access to some of the best TV shows and live TV channels on your Android phone and tablet using your existing PlayStation Vue subscription. So download the PlayStation Vue mobile app for Android and enjoy!
We’re also pleased to announce today some new features and updates for PlayStation Vue coming to your PS4 and PS3, making your viewing experience even better. Let’s get to it:
Video Thumbnail in Guide on PS4
Want to keep an eye on what you’re currently watching while scrolling through the Guide? You can now do so with our new video thumbnail in the upper right corner of the Guide as you move through new options of live TV and on-demand video in the Guide.
Quick Navigation on PS4 and PS3
There’s a new Quick Navigation menu that appears over your show, so you can get to a couple of places quicker. Quickly jump to “last channel” (one of the most highly requested features), My Shows, Guide, Explore, and Search instantly while you are watching a show. Press the touchpad of your DualShock 4, or hold down Triangle on your DualShock 3 and the Quick Navigation will pop up.
Additional enhancements on PS4 include a quicker way to preview rewind/fast-forward content and your favorite channels duplicated in Guide so you can see your Favorite Channels upfront along with the rest of the channel lineup in alphabetical order. Some additional UI improvements are also added for both PS4 and PS3.
We’ll have enhancements coming soon for Amazon Fire TV as well, including Quick Navigation and a new update that brings 60 frames per second video output for great high definition picture quality to 2nd Generation Amazon Fire TVs.
Since we launched PlayStation Vue last year, we’ve been working on a number of updates to make it the best destination to get your TV fix. We hope you enjoy these new features, as well as using the PS Vue mobile app on your Android device. Tell us what you think!
