Streaming what you play has become a way of life thanks to the explosion of Twitch. The existence of the game streaming platform means that anyone is able to play and comment on videogames. This popular idea has led others to start creating similar apps and Sony is the latest to jump on the bandwagon with PlayJ. This native Android app lets you share your screen with a friend to comment on the games you play, as you’re playing.
While it’s true that it’s pretty simple to stream what you want, the truth is that you need a series of gadgets to do so: a camera and a microphone, at least. PlayJ serves this purpose perfectly, creating a simple experience that uses basic features offered by any modern smartphone. Since your device already has a camera and microphone, it makes streaming incredibly easy. You just have to choose a game, invite a friend, and then you’ll start sharing the screen. It really couldn’t be easier.
In addition to seeing the game on the screen, you’ll also see two floating windows showing the view from the front camera on each device. You can move them and change their size freely to make the streaming experience as pleasant as possible. You can also activate or deactivate the sound of the participants as you please. PlayJ gives you all the possibilities you need to make it one of the easiest services of its kind to use.
Not only can you stream what you play, you can also share your screen directly. This means you can easily show friends videos on YouTube, a new app, or whatever else you want. It’s easier than you could ever imagine thanks to PlayJ. Although it’s still in beta, this app from Sony is already available for all Android devices, Sony or not. All you need is Android version 5.0 or higher.
