Problems solution

  • Screen sharing can work over wifi, but sometimes the connection is bad or it can get interrupted. If you're having trouble, try using an Ethernet cable to connect directly to the Internet.
  • You will not be able to see your friend's screen when they are in the home menu or control center. Do not worry about it! It will work once they are back in the game.
  • You cannot share or view a screen if the game in question is not already on sale in one of the player's regions.
  • Restart your console.
  • If it's still not working, perform a factory reset.

How to share games on PS5

When sharing a game, make sure you and your friend are both connected to the Internet via a LAN connection (i.e. connect an Ethernet cable from the router directly to the PS5). 



Otherwise, the connection may be too unstable to work well or consistently. Also, game sharing cannot be done if either party is using remote game mode.

  1. After sharing your screen, go to the section below the screen sharing icon and select it. It is labeled Share Screen | Share the game.
  2. Select the member you want to invite
  3. Select game mode: Guest Play as You (they try your games or step in to help you get through a difficult section) or Play as Guest (Play your games together with the guest)
  4. if you are the only one sharing the game, choose the game you want them to play if not already in the game.
  5. for the visitor play like you, they take control of your game.
  6. To play with the visitor, make sure it's a multiplayer game (in which multiple controls are needed) and when you're on the screen where other players can join, that's when they can join!
