While Genshin Impact works wonders on mobile devices, there are times when you want to see the world of Teyvat on the big screen. Fortunately, miHoYo’s open-world title allows you to hook your existing mobile account up to other devices. 

Genshin Impact players from around the world are currently looking forward to the upcoming Inazuma update, which will add a whole new region and plenty of characters to the game’s ever-growing roster. 

While playing on mobile is a great way to explore on the go, sometimes it’s best to just kick back and enjoy Teyvat in all its glory. In order to get the best experience, you’ll need to hook your mobile account up to a PC and PS4/PS5 devices.


Fortunately, doing this is fairly easy and doesn’t take more than a couple of minutes. Whether you’re tired of playing on mobile or just wish to see how Genshin plays on the big screen, then you’ll want to follow our handy guide to help get you up and running.

Genshin Impact’s long-awaited cross-save feature is releasing alongside the 2.0 Inazuma region update, which will hit live servers July 21, 2021. This will enable saves to be transferred across PS4, PS5, PC, Android, and iOS.

This is obviously huge news for all players, particularly for those on PlayStation, who previously couldn’t use the same account across PC and mobile. We’ll likely hear how this feature works once the Inazuma update goes live, so make sure you check back here for all the latest details.

Cross save functionality has been a hugely requested feature.

To put it simply, cross-save enables you to play on the same Genshin Impact account across numerous devices. For example, if you have a console Genshin Impact account and wish to play on PC, then you’ll be able to transfer all your progress freely between any device of your choosing. 

This is obviously a fantastic feature for those that wish to play across PC, mobile, PS4, PS5, and Switch.
