“Now, you can use two controllers to control your PS5 console as if you were using just one by designating a second controller to one account as an assist controller. In a blog post on September 13, 2023, the company said, “This feature introduces a new way for you to enjoy games collaboratively with others or help a friend or child navigate a particularly challenging section of a game.”

Users now also have the option to turn on haptic feedback effects while navigating their PS5 with their DualSense controller, DualSense Edge controller, or PS VR2 Sense controller.

With the latest update, 3D Audio powered by Tempest 3D AudioTech can now be enjoyed by those who own compatible Dolby Atmos-enabled HDMI devices such as soundbars, TVs or home theater systems.


Additionally, consumers can now increase the amount of storage on their PS5 consoles by using an M.2 SSD with a maximum capacity of 8TB (up from the previous 4TB limit).

Talking about the social feature enhancements, the company said that users can now invite a player into a closed party without automatically adding the player into the group or creating a new group. Additionally, players can now send open or closed party invitations to groups instead of only individual players.


Other features include the ability to react to messages with emojis, see a preview of someone’s Share Screen before joining a party, search for games within your game library, mute or adjust the volume of the PS5’s beep sound when turning it on or off, and more.
