Yes, This Is
What Friends Are For
Using Remote Play Together, you’ll stream video, audio, and voice between players while using your own controllers. You can even share the keyboard and mouse. And while you’re playing, all your voice chat and game volume options are available in one place.
To keep things simple, only the game is displayed to your Friends, never your desktop or other Top Secret stuff. You can share — or limit access to — the keyboard and mouse. It’s your choice.
During play, adjust volume and voice settings, plus manage players’ access to sharing your keyboard and mouse.

MORE ABOUT REMOTE PLAY TECHNOLOGIES
Remote Play technologies deliver real-time video encoding over a custom low-latency network protocol.
When you play a game using Remote Play, video and audio are sent from your gaming PC to another device. Remote input and multiplayer voice are sent back to the gaming PC, all within milliseconds.
You can tune streaming resolution and bitrate for the best experience on your setup with Advanced Settings. Over a 5 GHz network, our target is a resolution of 1080p at 60 frames per second, with good quality for most scenes. If you have a powerful gaming rig, a wired network, and a capable client device, it's possible to stream 4K at 60 FPS.
