PlayStation 5 New Firmware Update

Several new features introduced in the latest firmware update were tested in July with a software beta. The major highlights from that beta are:

  • New accessibility features, such as using a second DualSense controller for assistance
  • New audio options that allow 3D Audio powered by Tempest 3D AudioTech to be enjoyed on compatible Dolby Atmos-enabled HDMI devices
  • New ways to connect with other players and customize your multiplayer sessions
  • Support for larger-capacity M.2 SSDs (up to 8TB).

There are also some new additions that aren’t carried over from the beta. For one, Android phones and select Android TVs now support remote play. Fans can now play any game of their choice through the power of the cloud on iOS and Android. Further, there will also be some new PlayStation App updates: You can now react to messages with emojis and see a preview of someone’s Share Screen before joining the party on the app.

Additionally, the new update includes some new quality-of-life updates. These include:

  • The ability to use a second controller for assistance
  • Support for haptic feedback while navigating the PS5
  • Share screen preview
  • Search for games in the library
  • Game help improvements
  • Mute PS5 beep sound
  • Party UI features are much more ease-of-use

Certain features, such as game help, are exclusive to PlayStation Plus members. Regardless, most features in the new firmware update can be used by all PS5 owners. The September 13 Firmware Update for the PlayStation 5 is available worldwide.
