When using Remote Play, the connected device displays the same screen as on your PS4 system. You need to press the PS button to display your home screen. Try the following steps!

1) Go to your PS4 Settings > Remote Play Connection Settings.
2) Check the box to Enable Remote Play.
Then you can successfully enable the remote play feature in your PS4.
After setting up the PS4 setting, you’ll need to configure settings in your Android device. First of all you need to download the application, and then you further set up the connection after installing the application. Follow the instructions below:
1. Configure the settings in your Android device
1) Go the Settings app in your Android device.
2) Go to Security > Unknown sources. Turn on Unknown sources.
