If you have a PlayStation console in your home or are planning to buy your new PS5, it would be good to install your new PS App for iPhone and Android. The changes are significant.
Sony decided to update the PlayStation app a few weeks before the PS5 launch. It is available for iOS and Android, and the interface changes, starting with the main screen and the other menus, are not negligible at all.
Now, the emphasis is equally on your friends and the games you’ve played in the past. The biggest change is that you can chat with your friends online in the same PS app. Until now, the chat part was embedded in a dedicated application called PS Messages. Not only is that no longer needed, but it has been disabled.
Trying to focus on dialogue, the chat and voice interaction feature has an upgrade. For the first time, you can have voice conversations with up to 15 friends.
As before, the application also allows you to analyze the latest PlayStation Store offers, buy various games or DLCs and facilitate their installation on the console by clicking on the phone.
An important advantage that only PS5 owners will have is the management of internal memory. If you need free space for a game, you don’t have to go to the console. You can delete anything from the PlayStation 5 directly from your smartphone with the PS App. I don’t understand exactly why, but you can also start a game on the remote console, if you want.
All in all, the update released during this period is one that PlayStation users really needed. It hadn’t benefited from an upgrade in a long time, and the PS5 launch is the perfect pretext. I’m just curious how many use it and for how many users it tends to be indispensable.
