But first to the new features of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. On consoles they added the ability to create an initially open or closed “party”. Incidentally, the name of group chats has returned on the PlayStation 5 – now, like on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, they are called “Hangouts”.

Voice chats on PlayStation 5 can now report users. In addition, changes have been made to the current-gen console UI for game maps and trophies, as well as accessibility features such as mono headphone audio.

A menu has also appeared with tips on how to use the menu and some functions.

US and UK users are also now available to test voice commands in the menu. With their help, you can find and launch games, applications, settings, and control media playback. All of this now only works in English.

Starting today, the PS app will allow users to create or join public and private parties through the app. The UI has also been updated for easier access to the Friends tab, Hangouts, and Messages. The PS Remote Play app has been given a dark theme.

Finally, on the subject of variable refresh rate support on the PlayStation 5. According to Sony Interactive Entertainment, the feature will be coming to the console in the coming months. The technology improves the visual performance of games by reducing or eliminating artifacts such as jagged frame rates and screen tearing. Gameplay in many projects for PlayStation 5 will become smoother and input lag will decrease. VRR is only available on HDMI 2.1 compatible TVs and monitors.

Notably, at the developers’ request, previously released PS5 games will be optimized for VRR using a patch, and future projects may include support for the technology right from the debut. As an additional option, you can also apply VRR to PS5 games that don’t support it. This feature can improve image quality in some projects.
