Sony has just released a brand new app for PS4 gamers called PlayStation Communities on both iOS and Android platforms.

As many of you may be wondering, the purpose of Sony’s latest entry into the app world is to basically allow its latest console owners to keep in touch with their PS4 friends or other PS4 gamers while being away from the console itself. So if you’re planning to convene some team meeting, you could do that remotely without needing to power up the console and signing in.

Of course the app is meant to serve a larger purpose as well, where gamers will be able to come across those with similar interests in gaming, or topic of their interest. As Sony tells us: “Within a Community, you can join parties and launch into games with other Community members, or talk about your shared interests. For instance, if you’re having trouble finding players to tackle Destiny’s newest raid, Wrath of the Machine, a Destiny community may help you fill out your fireteam.”

As Sony points out, the ability to identify potential team mates, or perhaps plan out a modus-operandi with the team, is what makes PlayStation Communities app a brilliant addition for those who take their online gaming really seriously.

Gamers will also be able to keep a close eye on different communities, including being able to check who else is in a community that they are a member of, and the whole experience will be based upon recommendations drawn from their existing interests, as well as the games they have been playing using their PSN account.

In addition to all that, PlayStation Communities will also highlight communities that will be trending at a time so that users can keep up with the latest happenings around them in the PlayStation gaming world. More so, the app is also designed to provide push-notifications so that users can remain alert about any incoming messages or updates on posts.

So, if you are in a possession of a PS4, have an active PSN account, and are more than just an occasional gamer, downloading PlayStation Communities app is a no brainer!

You can download the app right now for free on your iOS or Android device from the App Store or Google Play Store respectively.
