a7x/a6000 - Can I start video recording from my smartphone?

Hey a7x and a6000 owners!

I used to have a NEX 5r. I remember that I could take photos with the playmemories app, but couldn't start recording a video. Is that still the case with the a7 series or even the a6000?

The NEX 5R had a 180 degree tilting screen, so I could be sure I was framing myself correctly after hitting the record button on camera. With the a7/a6000, I wouldn't be able to do that, and would have to wait till I was done self-recording to see if it was framed correctly - unless I can finally use my smartphone to remote view, then start recording.

Also, a long shot, can you manual focus with a smartphone yet?

Thanks for any help!
