How to update Minecraft PS4 from other devices
How do you say? Are you often away from home and therefore can't update Minecraft directly from the PlayStation 4? Well, then you might think about using the remote download functionality made available directly by Sony. You can use it on both mobile devices and computers, but of course you must have the digital version of the game available.
Before proceeding in describing how to do it, give me a moment to explain to you what this possibility consists of. Put simply, this feature takes advantage of the rest mode (standby) of the console to receive and execute orders from other devices: smartphone, tablet or computer precisely. I remind you that to enable PS4 rest mode, you just need to hold the button down PlayStation of the pad (the one present at the bottom in the central position) and press on the voice Enter sleep mode.
To configure the remote download feature instead, just turn on the console, go to the toolbar higher, move in the path Settings> Power Saving Settings> Set the functions available in sleep mode and check the boxes for the options Stay connected to the internet e Enable power on of PS4 from network.
Afterwards, go back to the Settings, go to the path System> Automatic Downloads and enable the box Application update file. Great, now the remote download feature is active and you just have to use it through the other devices.
However, there is a limit to this possibility: only users with a subscription to PlayStation Plus active can download updates even with the PlayStation 4 in rest mode, while if you only have one account PSN gratuito you have to keep the PlayStation 4 normally on. For more details on the subscription in question, I invite you to consult my tutorial on how to get PlayStation Plus for free (for an initial trial period).
That said, I'd say it's time to see how remote downloads work. To do this from mobile devices it is clearly necessary to download and install the application PlayStation App. To proceed, then launch the Play Store (if you have an Android device) or the App Store (if you have an iPhone or iPad), search for "playstation app"And press onicon of the latter (the PlayStation logo on a blue background).

After logging in, search for "Minecraft", Press ongame icon and first presses on the voice Add to Cart and then Show carrello.
