    An open party lets your friends join without an invite. Friends of party members can also join.

  • From the Game Base control menu and cards, you can now do the following:
    View all your friends under the [Friends] tab in the control menu.

    Add a player to a group, or create a new group directly from the messages card. You can also send video clips, images, quick messages and view a group’s shared media from this card.
  • Now when someone in a party is sharing their screen, you’ll see the on-air icon. You can check this in the [Parties] tab.

  • We’ve made it easier to decline friend requests by adding a [Decline] button to your friend request list.

    The screen reader is now supported in six additional languages: Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Korean.

  • Voice Command (Preview) understands speech commands for finding and opening games, apps and settings, as well as controlling media playback.
  • To get started, go to [Settings] > [Voice Command] and turn on [Enable Voice Command (Preview)]. Then, call out “Hey, PlayStation!” and ask your PS5 to do something.
  • You can use this feature to help you find and open games, apps and settings, control your media without even touching a button, and much more.
