The major PS5 software update will of course bring new features and overall improvements to the user interface. There will also be improvements on the Playstation app. First of all, the new update will allow gamers to store their PS5 games on a compatible external USB drive. Players can transfer games back to the PS5 when they feel like playing the game, and they will automatically update as well. However, you cannot play the games or download directly to the external storage.

The new update will also bring new social features for both PS4 and PS5 players, allowing cross-gen Share Play through chat parties. What Share Play essentially is, is that it will allow friends to try PS5 games through the feature by getting them to view your game screen and playing game together. A new “Request to Join” option have also been added, and this allows you to instantly enter joinable game sessions from your friends on both the PS4 and PS5 platform. This will also act as a shortcut to send game invites.
