Cronus Zen now supports all official PS REMOTE PLAY platforms for the PlayStation 5.

👉 This page includes the following important information for PlayStation 5 gaming with the PS REMOTE PLAY method and the Official Sony PS Remote Play software:

👉 Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Controllers to PS5 Guides:

  • Windows
  • MacOS
  • Apple iOS
  • Android

Android and iOS devices require a USB-C OTG to micro-USB cable to connect the Cronus Zen from its CONSOLE/PC USB port. Older iOS devices use the Apple Lightning port; the Lightning to USB camera adapter should work.


Please read this PS REMOTE PLAY checklist before setting up your PS5:

  • Do not have any PlayStation controllers paired by Bluetooth to your PS5 (delete them).
  • Do not have any scripts or GamePacks enabled while setting up your controller.
  • Download Astro's Playroom. It's free and great for testing all DUALSENSE controller functions.
  • Make sure your PS REMOTE PLAY device is on the same network as your PS5 (preferably wired).
  • Enable PS REMOTE PLAY and other recommended settings to your PS5 (see below).


First, you will need to enable Remote Play settings on your PS5.

  • Settings > System > Remote Play > Enable Remote Play
  • Settings > System > Power Saving > Features Available in Rest Mode > Enable Turning on PS5 from Network

There are also a number of console settings that will improve Zen's functionality and performance. You should also delete any paired controllers to prevent accidental pairing to the PS5 instead of the Zen.

  • Settings > System > Power Saving > Set Time Until Controllers Turn Off > Don't Turn Off
  • Settings > System > Power Saving > Features Available in Rest Mode > Supply Power to USB ports > Always
  • Settings > Accessories > Controllers > Communication > Use USB Cable
