1. Discord Integration

After more than 2 years of life, PS5 has finally received Discord integration. Although users could previously link their PSN accounts to Discord, the ability was limited to gameplay sharing, rather than communication. PS5 owners will now be able to transfer Discord calls to their console using their mobile or PC. After the update, users can directly join Discord voice chats from their PS5.

2. Variable Refresh Rate for 1440p display

Sony is adding Variable Refresh Rate support on the PS5 for 1440p displays. This will enable smoother gameplay and improved visual fidelity in games. This is great news especially for gamers who use monitors rather than TVs for gaming. More modes and HDMI options are now supported too.

3. Voice Commands

The 7.0 update also brings new voice command features to the PS5. Players can now capture the gameplay by saying phrases like “Hey PlayStation, start recording” or “Hey PlayStation, capture that”. Although the DualSense controller already has a dedicated capture button, this feature will add another way for players to capture and share their gameplay.

4. Wireless DualSense update

Sony’s DualSense controller is one of the best in the market. However, to update it, players still needed to plug it into their PS5. Well no more! Sony has finally added the support for wireless DualSense update, meaning you will no longer see a “Your controller needs an update” notification and be forced to plug it in.
