Sony's really pushing Remote Play at the moment. A dedicated Remote Play handheld machine, the PS Portal, is coming later this year, and now, the functionality is being brought to even more devices. As announced on the PS Blog, those with certain Android devices running TV OS12 will be able to use Remote Play.

To be specific, Sony says the Remote Play app is now available for use on the following:

  • Chromecast with Google TV (4K model)
  • BRAVIA XR A95L model

Presumably, more Android TV OS12 devices will follow in due course. Android smartphones are also compatible with Remote Play, as well as iOS devices, PC, and Mac. You can play your PS5 or PS4 on a lot of different screens nowadays, and as mentioned, the PS Portal is on the way too.

As ever, whether Remote Play works well for you depends on your connection speed. Sony states you need a minimum download speed of 5Mbps, but recommends at least 15Mbps. The platform holder notes for Android TV OS12 devices that performance may vary, and recommends setting your TV or monitor to low latency mode.
