IN A NUTSHELL:
- Sony has begun beta tests of automatic replay uploads in Canada and Japan;
- Videos can have a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and last up to three minutes;
- After two weeks, the replays will be automatically removed from the app.
Sony's new console has a number of interesting features and solutions, among them the ability to take a look at the game guide through the corresponding menu. These facilities may soon be joined by a feature that will appeal to gamers who like to store their gameplay recordings. Sony has launched beta tests in Canada and Japan, enabling the console to automatically upload gameplay clips to our phone via the PlayStation app. However, there are a few conditions that need to be met in order to use this feature.
The video recorded by the user can have a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, and its length must not exceed three minutes. In addition, they cannot be captured automatically, which means that recordings of achievements are out of the question. Materials that do not meet these requirements will not be uploaded to the app.
If the console is not connected to the Internet or has been turned off, the files will not be uploaded either. It will also be impossible to manually add content for upload. In addition, videos will disappear two weeks after appearing in the cloud. Please note that our recordings will appear in the app only after activation of the service, even if such a video was recorded a few seconds before its launch.
