According to a number of outlets including Eurogamer, IGN and others, following a recent system update, a new PS5 Remote Play has started showing up on the PS4 that allows you to stream games installed on your PS5 to another TV in your home via your PS4 over wifi. Streaming options include a range of resolutions (540p, 720p, or 1080p) in case your network struggles to stream higher quality video, though sadly it does not appear that streaming games in 4K using the PS5 Remote Play app is supported at this time.

Due to time zones, it appears European PS4s were among the first wave of consoles to get Sony’s latest system update, as the PS5 Remote Play app has not appeared on my personal PS4 yet, even though I went into my PS4's settings and manually checked for a new system update. On top of that, since Sony is taking down the PlayStation Network temporarily today for scheduled maintenance prior to the PS5's global launch on Nov. 12, it may be another day or so until people can properly test out the new PS5 Remote Play app.
