Is Honkai Star Rail cross platform?

Yes, Honkai Star Rail is cross platform and is currently available on PC, Android and iOS. A Playstation 5 version is set for release on October 11, 2023, and there are plans for a PS4 version in the near future.

Is Honkai: Star Rails cross progression?

Yes, Honkai: Star Rail supports cross progression between all currently supported devices. Players use the same account irrespective of the platform. (PC, IOS, Android or the upcoming PS5 version)

This means you can login using the same account on any device, and that any progress made on one platform will be saved. This is particularly helpful as you can auto-battle some Calyx's while on the move but then switch to PC when you're back home.

For those curious whether cross-progression will apply to the PS5 version, the answer is yes. The PS5 version of Honkai Star Rail supports both cross-play and cross-progression.
