  • The Android version of the update will be released gradually, so it may take a week for the update to be available on your mobile device.

1440p monitors are finally properly supported

Until now, monitor owners* had to hope that their display could fake an output in 4K to get a sharp image from the PS5. This is no longer the case, and you can set an output resolution of 1440p under “Display and Video” in the system settings. This means that all games are crisp on a 1440p monitor. The update also completes the feature set of The Last of Us remake, which natively outputs 1440p on 1440p monitors to prevent scaling artifacts in performance mode. You can read more about this in our tech check of The Last of Us Part 1:   48 14 More on The Last of Us Part 1 in our tech check: The most technically impressive game of this generation so far. 120 Hz, but no VRR: Gaming monitors that have a display with 120 Hz or more can use the high frame rate on the PS5 in 1440p mode. However, variable frame rates (VRR), which provide a smooth gaming experience with fluctuating frame rates in the game, cannot be enabled. This is mainly because the PS5 cannot handle the most common VRR standard for monitors – AMD’s FreeSync. More about VRR can be found here:   37 4 More on the PS5 Surprise: VRR provides a whopping frame rate boost in some games.

In addition, the update offers the following innovations:

  • Screen transfers can be requested from friends.
  • If you start a game that a participating person of your PlayStation party is already playing, you will receive a notification, which allows you to join the game session immediately.
  • In the text chat of the “Game Base”, you can send Voice messages and animated stickers can be sent..
  • If you make new friends via the PSN, you will be able to View people’s profiles more quickly in the future.
  • Game activities are more present integrated on the main page of the PS5 menu.
  • 3D audio can be compared with conventional stereo sound in the sound menu of the PS5.
  • Once help is available for a game is available, you will be informed via notification.
  • The sender of a text message can be displayed with a single keystroke.
  • Markers in recommended videos show the reason why they are suggested to you – for example, because it is a speed run or another great achievement.
  • The Internet browser offers two zoom functions: The entire page can be zoomed in, but always in such a way that the layout is maintained. Alternatively, all page elements can be zoomed in without regard to the layout.
  • The Youtube search can be operated with voice commandsbut only in English and with PSN accounts from the US or UK.
  • The screen reader reads possible controller commands from now on and can be operated more smoothly.
  • If you have locked your console with a controller passcode alternative button assignments will be displayed on the unlock screen.

If you have disabled the automatic download, simply go to the settings menu of the PS5, select “System”, choose the submenu “System software” and search for “Update and settings of the system software”.
