Sony today released a new messaging app for PlayStation users for iOS
and Android. Called PlayStation Messages, the app allows PSN members to
chat with their friends without having to use your PlayStation console.
While it was also possible to use Sony’s official PlayStation app to chat with your PSN friends, the clunky UI and slow performance of the app made it tough to do so. Even worse, the app was never optimised for the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus. In comparison, the dedicated messenger app has a prettier UI, feels significantly faster to use and has been optimised to use on the new Plus sized iPhones.
PlayStation Messages will allow you to:
Check your Friends List to instantly see who’s online and what they’re playing
Send text messages or voice messages to individual friends or to groups of friends anytime you like
Upload and share your own photos and swap PlayStation themed stickers
Search for Friends
Sony also rolled out an update to its official PlayStation app to remove the messaging feature from it.
