Genshin Impact is available for cross platform play on PS4, PS5, Mobile, and PC. Check out how to crossplay, the cross-save feature, and other information about cross-platform play here!

Yes, cross platform is available for Mobile, PC, and Playstation in Genshin Impact. So whether you're playing at home on your PC or your PlayStation, or you're on the go on your mobile phone; you can jump into the world of Genshin Impact and play with your friends no matter what device they're playing on!
|Mobile (Android and iOS)|
You can only play cross-platform if the person 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 server region!
Cross Saves has been confirmed for the game, and you can just log in with your Hoyoverse account either on PC or Mobile to continue playing where you left off.
When Version 2.0 became available, the linking between Hoyoverse Accounts (for PC/Mobile Players) and PlayStation Newtwork Accounts was also introduced. You can now crossplay and cross-save between those two accounts once you linked them!
Hoyoverse & PSN Account Link Guide
Genshin Impact on the PS5 functions similarly with crossplay and cross-save functions with the PS4
Genshin Impact on the PS5 was released on April 28, 2021. Check our guide below to see the full details:
Currently, Genshin Impact is not available for the Nintendo Switch, and there has been no announcements for Genshin Impact to be released on the Xbox. We will update this section once there have been further announcements.
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!
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.
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 PC or PS4. Keep in mind, however, that the PS4 version does not support transferring your character to other devices.
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.
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.
