Sony only announce Lots of new features are currently under development. Features such as support for 1440 p Produce They were disturbed to sometimes Others, like the ability to join a Discord voice chat locally, feel that it should have been announced several years earlier than the console’s life cycle.
You won’t be the first to access these features unless you get opted for the beta, but they look rather promising. You’ll finally be able to take Discord calls right from your PlayStation 5 and show the game you’re playing to whoever you’re talking to (just like the mobile and desktop versions).
PS5 will get other notable social features as well. You’ll finally be able to request screen sharing directly from your friends’ profiles, join gaming sessions through “party” chats, and see which games your friends also have on their accounts. If you’re picky about who joins your games (like me), don’t worry: Sony is giving PS5 owners the ability to dictate who joins your games and who doesn’t.
These additions have the potential to be a huge benefit to the multiplayer ecosystem that Sony has been trying to build ever since Bungie earned For $3.6 billion. And according to financial call As of last year, multiplayer was the biggest reason PlayStation Plus users still paid to use Sony’s game subscription service every month.
Even if you’re not a multiplayer player, Sony is developing features that apply to all PlayStation owners. What I am most pleased with is the ability to use a voice command to capture video. You won’t be fiddling with details manually either; You can make presets for the length of the average clip.
If you’ve recently upgraded to a current-gen console, you probably remember that the game-provided transfers were a huge pain point. For now, the only way to shuffle your PlayStation 4’s save data into the new console was to dig into cloud storage. PlayStation Plus subscribers will eventually be able to transfer their save data automatically. Even if you don’t pay for Sony’s game subscription service, you’ll soon be able to transfer data between individual PS5 devices. You know, now it’s supposedly possible for the average person to do that Locking out more than one console.
