Players of both console and mobile versions can play together with cross-platform online play. Learn all the details of cross-play and which platforms are best suited for cross-play.

Is Crossplay Available?

Cross-Platform Play Confirmed

Console and Mobile.png

Genshin Impact supports crossplay across all platforms, console and mobile, allowing players with different versions of the game to enjoy playing together. Although the console and mobile versions have significant differences, players can adventure as a group smoothly without significant obstacles.

Crossplay Only Available On the Same Server

You can only play cross-platform if who you're trying to play with is on the same server as you. If you want to play with your friends make sure you all pick the same region!

Cross Saves Available for PC and Mobile Only

Cross Saves have also been confirmed for the game, but PS4 users are currently not supported. Consider a different platform if you're hoping to take the game on the go with you.

How to Use Cross Saves

Crossplay Benefits

Play Together On Different Devices

The main benefit is, of course, to not have to own the same consoles or devices to play with friends. Boot up your device of choice and get to playing together!

Online Multiplayer and How to Play

Setting For No Crossplay As Well

You can also limit players who can join you to the same device as your own! Head on into the settings and you can choose the option that will allow only other PS4 users to play with you.

Increases Number of Devices You Can Play On

Another benefit is the amount of devices you can play Genshin Impact on increases. If you're more of a smartphone player you can take the game on the go or you can relax at home on your PS4. Keep in mind, however, that the PS4 version does not support transferring your character to other devices.

Difference Between Mobile and Console Versions

Crossplay Downsides

PS4 Load Times Are Longer

Compared to smartphones and PC, the PS4 version's load times are much slower. Playing together with PS4 players will have you waiting for them to load in so you may want to play with people using other devices.

Smartphones Heat Up

Genshin Impact is a pretty big game, especially for smartphones, making them heat up pretty quickly. You may find yourself only playing for 30 minutes to an hour before the heat gets too much so this version isn't quite suited for long play sessions.
