Sony’s PlayStation app reaches 100 million installs on Play Store
SonyThe PlayStation app has racked up 100 million installs from the Google Play Store. The companion mobile app for PS4 and PS5 allows players to connect with their friends, send voice and text messages, see what games they are playing and their trophy collections, and schedule multiplayer sessions. You can also go to PlayStation Store to buy new titles and manage your PS5 console storage with this app.
The app is not perfect in all areas, but it is improving. Sony redesigned the app last fall, just before the launch of the PS5. A more recent update brought the Wish list function the app had weirdly lost some time ago. The app can now also notify you when a friend goes online. Overall, PlayStation App is a decent companion app for the PS4 and PS5 that makes your gaming experience more enjoyable. Perhaps 100 million installs on the Play Store are a testament to the user-friendliness of the app.
The feat came just five months after the PS5 launched in November last year. The next-generation console from the Japanese company is available in two versions: Digital Edition and Disc Edition. He was sell like hot cakes since its launch, make the record books as the best-selling console in US history.
However, the continued global shortage of semiconductor chips has affected the production of the PS5. As a result, the console is currently out of stock at most retailers around the world. Reports suggest that Sony had sold more than six million units of the gadget by the end of March of this year. The PS4, meanwhile, sold over 115 million units over its lifetime. No wonder the PlayStation app has surpassed 100 million installs on Android devices alone.
Moto Photo Editor and myAT&T also hit the 100 million mark
Besides Sony’s PlayStation app, two other apps also have reached this coveted milestone of 100 million installs on the Google Play Store – Moto Photo Editor and myAT & T.
Moto Photo Editor is a photo editing app exclusive to Motorola phones. The app hasn’t been updated since 2018 but seems quite useful for Motorola users. The only notable feature offered by this app is the ability to replace the background of your photos and resize and move the selected parts.
myAT & T, on the other hand, is an all-in-one app for AT&T subscribers. It allows you to check your mobile data usage, manage your phone bills, upgrade to a newer plan, or purchase new devices.
