Genshin Impact has been making a lot of buzz lately thanks to the new RPG gameplay as well as cross-platform capabilities. The game is currently available for PC, mobile, and PS4 users and allows users to cross-save between all these platforms. This offers a unique gameplay experience that allows you to pick up virtually any compatible device you own and continue the game. If you are a PS4 user looking to make use of this functionality then let’s take a look at the procedure.
Sadly no, cross-save is not possible between PS4 and other platforms. This means that you can not transfer your save files or progress with the PS4 version of the game. However, if you are using a PC and mobile then you will be able to make use of this functionality.
According to miHoYo, the developers of the game, the issue arises due to the restrictions in place on PSN account. And as a result of Sony’s closed software environment, your account can not be linked to your other accounts on platforms like mobile and PS4.

‘Linking’ is a term used to denote the connection between two virtual accounts that will allow you to access all your data from both the accounts. This feature in games helps save progress from various platforms allowing you to pick up the game on any compatible platform and start the game from your last save.
This allows you to play games like Genshin Impact on the go as it is available on iOS and Android as well. This means that the progress you make on Genshin Impact mobile will be automatically transferred to your PC account.
And it’s wonderful, believe me! So the next time you try to play the game on PC, you will be continuing from the last location you played on your mobile. Kind-of, you are never sitting idle because if you can’t play on PC, you can resume gameplay on your mobile from anywhere in the world. So, when you have to kill the time, you can be in Teyvat in a matter of seconds.

Does it save progress across both?
Yes, cross-save is the main benefit of linking your accounts with each other. This allows you to share your progress across compatible devices which allows you to pick up the game where you last left it on any compatible device.
Sadly, this functionality is currently not available to PS4 users as discussed earlier due to the restrictions in place on a PSN account by Sony. And currently, the only way to play Genshin Impact on PS4 is to link your PSN account to the game.
