Just recently the open source PlayStation Remote Play app for Steam Deck, chiaki4deck, got a big update but it came with a few issues that needed solving and a new v1.6.1 is out now. Plus a fun new feature was added.

This is a great app for those of you who have either a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 and a Steam Deck, especially when you want to continue gaming but someone else wants the TV it's connected to. This is actually a fork of the original Chiaki, with enhancements to make it work better directly on the Steam Deck along with better documentation.

New features and fixes in v1.6.1:

  • Fixes console registration.
  • Fixes fullscreen double-click and F11 shortcuts.
  • Don't close main window when closing stream session on MacOS.
  • Adds option to sleep PlayStation when sleeping Steam Deck.

Available via an AppImage from the release page or Flathub.

See more on the official site and GitHub.

Having wrong PSN Account ID issues but I assume it'll be fixed in a week or 2, just in case anybody else is having issues so they don't feel alone 👌
Edit; got updated today and logins working great now! YUSSSS!

If this is a fork for the Steam Deck, why do they have binary releases for win and macos?
