Connect your favorite supported PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo controllers to a Cronus Zen and a PlayStation 5, using the official Sony PS REMOTE PLAY for Android.

👉 Before you get started, please review the PS REMOTE PLAY CHECKLIST and apply the PS5 CONSOLE SETTINGS.


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

  • Make sure the device you are running PS REMOTE PLAY on is on the same network as your PS5 (preferably wired).
  • Download Astro's Playroom. It's free and great for testing all DUALSENSE controller functions.
  • Do not have any PlayStation controllers paired by Bluetooth to your PS5 (delete them).
  • There may be no DUALSENSE Adaptive Trigger or rumble support in some PS5 games.
  • Do not have any scripts or GamePacks enabled while setting up your controller.
