PlayStation 5 will include voice integration for Discord
A lot of new features that are currently in the works were just announced by Sony. Some features, like the ability to natively join a Discord voice chat or support for 1440p output, have been teased for some time. On the other hand, others, like the ability to natively join a Discord voice chat, feel like they should have been announced earlier than several years into the console’s lifespan.
Even though you won’t be the first to use these features unless you get selected for the beta, they look pretty good. Just like in the mobile and desktop versions, you will soon be able to make calls directly from your PlayStation 5 to Discord and show the game you’re playing to the person you’re talking to.
Other important social features will be added to the PS5. Finally, you will be able to request screensharing directly from your friends’ profiles, participate in gaming sessions via “Party” chats, and see which games your friends also own on their account. Don’t worry if you’re as picky as I am about who gets to play in your games: Sony is giving PS5 owners the ability to choose who can play in your games and who can’t.
Since Sony bought Bungie for $3.6 billion, it has been trying to build out the multiplayer ecosystem. These additions could be huge boons. In addition, a financial call from the previous year stated that multiplayer was the primary reason PlayStation Plus subscribers continued to pay each month to use Sony’s gaming subscription service.
Sony is developing features that are applicable to all PlayStation owners, even if you are not a fan of multiplayer. The ability to record video with a voice command is the one I’m most excited about. You wouldn’t manually alter any details either; Presets can be made for the typical length of a clip.
If you recently upgraded to a console of the current generation, you probably remember how difficult it was to transfer game saves. At the moment, accessing your cloud storage is the only way to transfer your PlayStation 4 saves to your new console. Automatically transferring save data will eventually be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers. You will soon be able to transfer data between individual PS5s even if you do not subscribe to Sony’s gaming subscription service. You are aware that currently, it is alleged that the average person can acquire multiple consoles.
