PlayStation’s second major PS5 software update is coming to all PS5 tomorrow globally. This update includes a variety of enhancements to the PS5 console experience as well as 3D audio support for built-in TV speakers, which include M.2 SSD storage expansion, which enables PS5 players to store and play PS5 games, PS4 games, and media apps directly from the expanded high-speed storage.
Apart from PS5 mobile features will also receive feature updates with support for PS Remote Play over mobile networks, and the ability to view Share Screen broadcasts on PS App which beginning next Thursday, Sept. 23.
Here are the Keys Feature on the upcoming updates;
- Control Center customization.
Players can now customize their Control Center more freely by rearranging or choosing which controls to hide or unhide at the bottom of the screen.
- Enhanced Game Base.
Players can now easily view and write messages to friends and Parties directly from Game Base in the Control Center.
- Game Library and Home Screen updates.
If you have PS4 and PS5 versions of the same game installed, they’ll now appear separately in the “Installed” tab of the Game Library and on the Home screen. Each game’s tile now also clearly indicates its platform.
- Screen Reader controls.
Players can now pause or resume Screen Reader (Press “PS + Triangle buttons”) and have it repeat anything it reads (Press “PS + R1 buttons”).
- PlayStation Now resolution selector and connection test tool.
PlayStation Now subscribers can choose between 720p or 1080p (depending on the individual game) to accommodate their preferred video resolution for game streaming. A streaming connection test also helps them identify and troubleshoot any problems with their connection.
- New Accolade Type: “Leader.”
Following an online match, players can award others with a fourth accolade type, “Leader,” which is visible on players’ profiles.
- Automatic capture of “personal best” videos.
When players compete in challenges for a better time or a higher score and set a new personal best, a video clip of the action will automatically be recorded. Players can also share clips of their personal bests directly from the challenge card in the Control Center, or from their Media Gallery. Players have direct control over this functionality via their Captures and Broadcast settings.
- New Trophy tracker.
A new Trophy Tracker that lets players quickly access up to five trophies per game through the Control Center.
- 3D Audio Support for Built-In TV Speakers
- M.2 SSD Storage Expansion
Important: M.2 SSDs must meet the minimum performance and size requirements outlined on this page. Using an M.2 SSD also requires effective heat dissipation with a cooling structure (such as a heatsink) that meets the dimensional requirements.
- PS Remote Play App over mobile networks
- View Share Screen broadcasts on PS App
Starting next Thursday, Sept. 23, a PS App update will begin rolling out globally and give users the ability to view their friends’ Share Screen broadcasts together. To start, join a party voice chat from your mobile device with a friend who’s playing on a PS5 console. Then ask your friend on PS5 to start their Share Screen broadcast. Please note, only players on PS5 can broadcast via Share Screen.
*The Android version of the update is a phased release and may take one week until the update is available on your mobile device.
