My first day with Share Play

Jessey Nettey writes: "This has been a very interesting week for PS4 owners. If you haven’t been keeping up with the news, PS4 update 2.0 went live early this morning, bringing one of Sony’s most touted features, Share Play, to the console. I woke up bright and early to try it out and I’d have to say it was definitely worth the lost hour of sleep."

I was surprised at how well the feature works. I thought it would be broken due to lag but thankfully that didn't happen.

Truly a game changer in my opinion. As others said "its the most next gen feature on current gen systems"

i fully agree ive been game sharing alot of games with friends its awesome

my friend started playing alien isolation on shareplay and he forgot he was playing on my console until it popped up saying the session will end in 5 mins lol

Good question. I guess it will be the same as watching a twitch stream in ps4.

I think this could be the next big thing however had some issues.
I can host perfectly fine, no lag for other player, nothing. But my friend hosts and I get the message "Connection speed too slow" yet we both have pretty much the same internet speeds, same ISP etc. I went over his router settings with him, they are default except for the ports - same as mine. So were stumped.
Any suggestions feel free to PM me, if we can get this sorted Id be eternally grateful!
A bit of googling shows this is a common problem. So aside from that, when this feature works it is incredible.

Thats probably latency or jitter on his or your connection, do a speed test on both sides and check it, it also the depends on the time of the day and the number of ppl using broadband in the zone at any given time.

I have the same problem. A friend of mine lives 2 doors from me and we both have over 50 down and over 5 up with zero jitter and my ping is 24 and his is 27 to speedtest. And shareplay is almost unplayable. It is so compressed it hurts my eyes and can barley tell whats going on screen once alot of movement or alot of things on screen are happening. Im sure they will get things ironed out.

Looks like some have different experiences. I've been playing with someone from across the states, miles away and he has noticed no lag and he thought the game was streaming in 1080 evrn tho i told him it can only output at 720. My friends all bug out at how gd it works.

I can never get it to work with anyone :(

People can only connect to me,and we can play for hours with no lag, but I cant connect to them. Is it because my speed is now too slow? I used to get 100Mbps/50Mbps now I get D60Mbps/U30Mbps.. could my slower speed be the problem?
