Sony has rolled out a major PlayStation 5 system software update globally.
It introduces a number of new features which have been in beta testing in some countries since late July.
The update adds support for Dolby Atmos HDMI devices like soundbars, TVs or home theatre systems. This enables the console to pass the PS5’s 3D Audio feature to Atmos devices by rendering the 3D Audio channels (including overhead ones) to Atmos speakers.
It also adds new accessibility features, including the ability to assign a second controller as an ‘assist controller’ to a single account, as well as the ability to turn on haptic feedback while navigating the PS5 system menu.
Alongside these previously revealed features, several more have been announced.
PlayStation Remote Play is now supported on devices running Android TV OS 12, which currently include Chromecast with Google TV (4K model) and the Sony Bravia XR A95L model.
Additional voice commands are also available in the US and UK, while enhancements to the PlayStation App will arrive later this month.
