Sony has released a new PS4 firmware update today that adds the ability to disable the game chat audio which was previously possible on the PS5.
Game Chat Audio can be easily muted on the PS5 through the DualSense controller but it is not the case with the PlayStation 4. Sony has added this option for those who would rather have the audio muted.
This is an optional update according to the official support website. It should be available to download now for the PS4. In addition to this, there is an update for the PS5 available today as well. Get the details on this update below.
PS4 VSH 8.03 is an optional update and the following change will be made:
This allows the user to toggle the game chat audio off and applies to both the incoming as well as outgoing audio. However, it won’t apply to party chat audio so you don’t have to worry about facing it when playing together with friends.
