Sony launches new PS5 system software update which includes 1440p resolution support, new game listing features, and UX and social improvements. Testing for 1440p on PS5 first kicks off in Julyand now all PS5 owners will be able to access the software update.

The new 1440p option allows PS5 owners to choose this resolution on compatible TVs and monitors. If games fully support 1440p then they will produce native output at this resolution, otherwise 4K games will improve anti-aliasing by using supersampling up to 1440p output. The only drawback is that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) will not be supported at 1440p, and will only work at 1080p and 4K on the PS5.

This new PS5 update also includes a game list feature, which is basically a folder for games. You can list games from the main game library, and each list will hold up to 100 games. There is a total limit of 15 game lists, and disc, digital, and streaming games can all be added to the list.

Sony also added new social features, including the ability to request Screen Sharing from friends at parties, improved user profile UX, and notifications to help PS5 owners quickly join games from party chats. You can also send stickers and voice messages in party chats now, and easily compare the differences between 3D audio and regular stereo settings before switching.

Finally, Sony is also testing an improved voice search for YouTube on the PS5. You can simply say “Hey PlayStation, find Spider-Man on YouTube” and the relevant results will be displayed. The Voice Command preview is only available in English for PS5 owners in the US and UK at this time.
