PS5 Update 23.01-07.01.00.00 Patch Notes
- This system software update improves system performance.
One of the most significant features of the PS5 7.0 update is the integration of Discord voice chat, which allows PS5 users to chat with their friends on other gaming platforms. To use this feature, users must link their Discord and PlayStation Network accounts, then use the Discord app on their mobile device or computer to start a voice chat on their PS5 console.
Another feature that will appeal to gamers is the ability to initiate a screen share directly from a friend’s profile. Users can select the share screen icon on their friend’s profile to start a new session.
In addition, a new “Join Game” icon has been added to party chats, allowing users to quickly and easily join games their friends are playing. The new “Friends Who Play” tile also allows users to see which of their friends have a specific game, who is currently online, and who is currently playing the game.
Other notable features include support for Variable Refresh Rate at 1440p, game library enhancements that allow users to sort and filter games, and the ability to transfer data from one PS5 console to another using a local Wi-Fi network or LAN cable.
