Sony has released an impor­tant firmware update for users in its PlaySta­tion 5 sys­tem soft­ware beta pro­gram. It adds numer­ous improve­ments to the con­sole inter­face, among oth­er adjust­ments. The PS5 beta now allows users to enable 3D audio sup­port through TV speak­ers, which can be fur­ther opti­mized using a DualSense controller.

You can also mea­sure the acoustics of your room using the micro­phone on your DualSense wire­less con­troller to apply the 3D audio set­ting that’s opti­mized for your room,” says the beta notes–which was spot­ted by The Verge.

Beta update 2.0–04.00.00 also includes more per­son­al­iza­tion options for rear­rang­ing or choos­ing con­trols in the Con­trol Cen­ter inter­face, adds a mes­sage-writ­ing func­tion for friends and par­ties from the Game Base, and adds more man­age­ment options to the Friends tab. An irri­tat­ing issue was also addressed, were a PS4 ver­sion of a game would be down­loaded instead of the PS4 edition.

Under the [Installed] tab, each game’s tile now clear­ly indi­cates its plat­form (such as PS4 or PS5),” the beta notes detail. “Also, just in your games home screen, dif­fer­ent plat­form ver­sions of a game will now appear separately.”

A tro­phy track­er will allow play­ers to access up to five tro­phies per game through the Con­trol Cen­ter. Tro­phies will also pro­vide more infor­ma­tion, as they will be dis­played ver­ti­cal­ly by default. 

PlaySta­tion Now is adding 720p and 1080p options for stream­ing, along­side a new auto­mat­ic video clip for PS5 users when they’ve com­plet­ed a high score chal­lenge with­in a game. 

Parental con­trols have been updat­ed as well, so par­ents will now be noti­fied via the PS5 or the PlaySta­tion app when their child requests to play a game or com­mu­ni­cate online.

Final­ly, Sony has made it eas­i­er to set up an inter­net con­nec­tion and has added anoth­er sta­bil­i­ty update for the DualSense controller.

On the hard­ware side of things, the PS5 beta is final­ly enabling the use of the inter­nal SSD expan­sion.

The PS5 has become the fast-sell­ing PlaySta­tion con­sole in the com­pa­ny’s his­to­ry, and they announced ear­li­er this week it’s sold over 10 mil­lion units since its release.
