Sony has released a new update for the PS5 DualSense controller in addition to an update for the PSVR 2 and Sense controllers. This follows the system update for PS5.
These updates are rather small in size but the new change here appears to be the ability to update the DualSense controller wirelessly. Previously, it was required that a USB cable was connected to update the controller.
Since this update appears to be related to bug fixes, there are no patch notes or changelog shared for it. However, it is mandatory to update the PSVR 2 headset, and Sense controllers, along with the DualSense controller.
The new PS5 update, which was previously available as a Beta, introduces several new features, including the integration of Discord voice chat. This feature allows PS5 users to communicate easily with their friends on other gaming platforms. Users need to link their Discord and PlayStation Network accounts and then use the Discord app on their mobile device or computer to initiate a voice chat on their PS5 console.
Moreover, the update allows users to initiate or request a screen share directly from a friend’s profile, join games their friends are playing using the “Join Game” icon, and view a new “Friends Who Play” tile that shows which friends have a particular game, who is currently online, and who is currently playing the game.
The update also includes other features such as the ability to manually upload game captures to the PlayStation App, support for Variable Refresh Rate at 1440p, game library enhancements that enable users to sort and filter games, and the ability to transfer data from one PS5 console to another using a local Wi-Fi network or LAN cable.
