New PS5 System Software Update Includes Exciting Features for Gamers

Sony is rolling out a new system software update for PlayStation 5 (PS5) consoles worldwide. This update includes several features from the latest PS5 beta, as well as other enhancements designed to improve the gaming experience.

One of the notable additions is new accessibility features. Gamers now have the option to use a second DualSense controller to assist them in gameplay. This feature allows players to collaborate with others or help friends navigate challenging sections of a game. To enable this option, users can go to the Accessibility settings and select “Use Second Controller for Assistance.”

Another noteworthy feature is the support for larger-capacity M.2 SSDs, with the ability to expand storage capacity up to 8TB. This allows players to store more games and downloadable content on their PS5 consoles.

Additionally, the update introduces new audio options for 3D Audio powered by Tempest 3D AudioTech. Gamers with compatible Dolby Atmos-enabled HDMI devices, such as soundbars and home theater systems, can now enjoy immersive audio experiences in PS5 games.

The PS5 system software update also brings new ways to connect with other players and customize multiplayer sessions. Users can now invite players into closed parties without automatically adding them to the group or creating a new group. There is also a preview feature that allows gamers to see a preview image of someone’s Share Screen before entering a party.

In terms of software compatibility, PS Remote Play is now available on additional Android devices. This feature allows players to stream games from their PS5 or PS4 consoles to smartphones, tablets, PCs, and Macs over the internet or home network.

Furthermore, the PS App will receive enhancements on iOS and Android devices, including the ability to react to messages with emojis and preview someone’s Share Screen before joining a party.

These updates aim to enhance the overall gaming experience for PS5 users, providing new features and improvements that cater to accessibility, audio, connectivity, and convenience.
