Top 7 PS4 Tricks and Tips you should know:

1. Make headphones wireless

Well, wireless when it comes to stretching between the sofa and the screen that is. A 3.5mm jack handily positioned on the DualShock 4 means you can plug your own headphones or headset into the controller. The default setting is for chat audio only but this can be easily tweaked by holding down the PS button in game and selecting ‘adjust devices’ on the resulting menu. Select the ‘output to headphones’ option and choose ‘all audio’. Voila, the digital crackling of Watch Dogs is in your ears and, if you have an inline mic you can use this for in game chat or even commentary recording for Twitch.

2. Take easy screenshots

The default set up of the share button means that a quick press will bring up the share menu and a longer press is needed to take a screenshot. However, an ‘easy screenshots’ mode is available that allows you to reverse the settings and means you’ll never have to leave the action if you want to take a quick snap of the scenery/carnage. This setting can be found within the options menu of the share screen.

3. Use the Share Factory

A big part of the recent 1.70 update was the Share Factory. A free editing app, it delivers more personification options for your videos with the ability to add commentary, soundtracks and effects to your footage. You can add a unique PS4 intro and outro to each video you post and it delivers a user friendly interface for editing and splicing clips together. Videos can be uploaded directly to Facebook from the PS4 or alternatively you can save them to a USB stick in order to upload to YouTube via your computer.

4. Quick-switch between your apps and games:

It’s not full multitasking but if you want to flick between applications on the PS4, a double tap of the PS button will quickly switch between the two most recent apps. This means if you are checking the trophies required for an elusive platinum you can switch easily between the game and the trophy application without having to go to the home screen and trawl along to the desired section. As a side note, if you press the home button once mid game, the game will be paused and you are free to browse to other settings without the game closing.

5. Download games remotely:

Not just a pretty keyboard accessory, your phone can also set your PS4 to download new games while you are out and about. Using the store on the PlayStation App you can browse for new content and if your PS4 is on standby with its power save settings with ‘connect to the internet’ selected then you can set games downloading immediately after purchase so they are ready for you arriving home.

6. Keep up to date

PS4’s equivalent of your Facebook wall but without the ‘most recent’ problem, the activity feed shows off what your PSN friends have been up to. Initially just showing everyone playing the exact same four games on launch, it’s now much more interesting and gives you information on what trophies have been earned, what new releases are being played and any shared video content from your online friends.rd accessory, your phone can also set your PS4 to download new games while you are out and about. Using the store on the PlayStation App you can browse for new content and if your PS4 is on standby with its power save settings with ‘connect to the internet’ selected then you can set games downloading immediately after purchase so they are ready for you arriving home.

7. Mange your PS 4 power settings:

If you’re the type of gamer who falls asleep in front of the TV or if you’re prone to just walk off and leave your gear switched on, you can tell your PS4 to auto-poweroff or go to sleep after a set length of time. If you don’t want it to do so, you can choose that also.
