Playstation 4's 2.0 update launches on Tuesday the 28th of October and one of the major features of this update is Share Play. Share Play gives players more freedom and choice when it comes to creating an online local co-op experience.
...by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game for up to one hour at a time - even when they don't own a copy of it.
Share Play has 3 main features.
Share your screen with a friend, allowing them to spectate. This is ideal for PS4 owners that want to watch their friends play a game and provide helpful tips. PlayStation Plus is not required to use this.
Hand over my controller
Pass your controller to a friend, virtually, and watch them play. Your friend does not need to own, or even download the game, in order to use this feature. This is perfect for introducing your friends to new games. The host will need to be a PlayStation Plus member, but the guest does not.
Hand over another controller
If a game supports local multiplayer, you can have your friend join as player two. Again, the visitor does not need to own, or download the game in order to use this feature. Both players will need PlayStation Plus to use this feature.
