After quite the wait, Sony is rolling out the new global system software update for all PS5 players which adds 1440p display support. This was accomplished thanks to the support and feedback from PS5 beta participants.
The update includes several highly-requested features like 1440p HDMI video output for PS5 consoles, gamelists, and additional social and quality of life features. This update was previously rolled out as a beta back in July.
One of the primary feature being introduced is the “YouTube through Voice” command which essentially enables a verbal Youtube search at any time for as long as you’re using the Playstation 5–including during gameplay. Quite helpful for game guides.
Also, PS App users will be able to launch a PS Remote Play session directly from the PS App onto their iOS and Android devices. Of course, the PS App and the PS Remote Play app should both be installed for this to work.
Lastly, in the same fashion as the PS5 feature, PS App users will be able to request another party member playing on the PS5 to start a Share Screen session. This will enable them to watch their friend’s gameplay from the app itself.
As of now, these are the current updates that PS5 users will have access to. This has been rolled out, globally, and can be enjoyed as early as right now. For more details on these features, check out the official Playstation Blog.
