About Share

You can upload and share screenshots and video clips of gameplay that are saved on the PS4™ system by using online services. You can also
broadcast (stream) your gameplay, and share information about things

During parties, you can also share screens and gameplay with other players in the party.
  • Sub account users can save screenshots and video clips, but cannot upload or broadcast using online services.
  • You can also use Remote Play to save and upload screenshots and video clips. However, you cannot use Remote Play to broadcast or
    share gameplay.
  • The online services that can be used vary depending on country and region. For details, contact customer support in your country or region.
  • Screenshots, video clips, and broadcasts may include personal information of yours or other players, such as real names, online IDs,
