PlayStation has recently announced a multitude of new features for its products, including the PS5, PS App, and PS Remote Play. These exciting features include:
The ability to use two controllers simultaneously to control various commands on the PS5 console. This feature is especially useful for games that can be played both solo and with a friend. With the second controller, players can join in without having to contend for control. This feature is compatible with DualSense, DualSense Edge, and third-party controllers.
Support for Dolby Atmos for different audio devices. While the PS5 already has its own 3D Audio feature, many users have requested Sony to incorporate Dolby into their system. This feature will enable sound devices connected via Dolby Atmos-supported HDMI, such as soundbars, TVs, or speaker systems.
Improvements to the social system on the PS5, including the UI of the Party, Share Screen Preview, easier game join with friends, and the ability to respond to chats with emojis.
Additional functionality enhancements in the PS5, such as the ability to search games in your library, improved Game Help feature, showcasing new features and providing guides on how to use different features on the PS5, as well as the option to mute or adjust the volume beep sound during console startup or shutdown.
Support for M.2 SSD with increased storage capacity, now supporting up to 8TB compared to the previous maximum support of 4TB.
PS Remote Play:
Support for devices running Android TV OS version 12 and above. Some examples of supported devices include Sony BRAVIA XR A95L TVs and Chromecast with Google (4K version).
Enhancements to user experience and the addition of new features that align with the PS5, such as the ability to update PS5 firmware directly within the app and access the new social systems available on the PS5.
