Sony Improves Your Game Quality: PS5 Receives New Update
Sony is rolling out a major new PS5 update today, just a month after it first started testing changes in beta.
Voice Command for Support Pages
The new update adds Dolby Atmos and you can now turn off the PS5 beep when you turn the console on or off, or even when it goes into rest mode after idle. If you just want to adjust the beep volume, there’s now an option for that too.
Another update is the ability to use a second DualSense controller for assistance. “You can now assign a second controller to an account as an auxiliary controller and use two controllers to operate your PS5 console as if you were using a single controller,” explains Hideaki Nishino.
Sony is expanding support for expandable M.2 SSD storage to 8TB on drives. It’s also adding a number of UI improvements and some general navigation changes with this latest PS5 software update. You can now enable haptic feedback from the DualSense controller when navigating the PS5 UI.
Voice commands for finding support pages, such as “Hey PlayStation, help” and “Hey PlayStation, what’s new?” have also been improved. There are some welcome changes to some of the PS5’s social features. You’ll now be able to invite players to a closed party without adding them to a group, and you’ll also be able to send open or closed party invites to groups instead of a single friend.
PS Remote Play support is being extended to additional Android TV devices. The PS Remote Play app is now available on Android TV OS 12 devices, including Chromecast (4K) with Google TV and Sony’s Bravia XR A95L 12.
