New PS5 update is out now, VRR support coming soon "next few months"

The latest firmware update for the PS5 and PS4 consoles has gone live, adding some new features and tweaking the user interface. PS4 users can look forward to a retuned party experience, such as the ability to create or join open and closed parties.

PS5 users will also receive the update, while those with accounts in the US and UK can try out a preview of the new voice command system. Using this feature, users can find and open games, applications and settings, as well as control media playback with their voice.

In the user interface department, enhancements to the Game Base and Trophy cards have been added, as well as accessibility features such as headset mono audio. The PlayStation app and PlayStation Remote Play app have also been upgraded to now provide “easier” access to Friends, Party and Messages on PS5.

In a blog post, Sony also teased that the PS5 will soon support variable refresh rates, designed to make gaming smoother on HDMI 2.1-compatible TVs and PC monitors. VRR enhances the visual performance of PS5-compatible games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts, helping to create sharper images. To take advantage of VRR, games need to be optimized through a game patch, or they can provide the feature at launch.

It still works for games that don’t natively support VRR, but Sony does warn users that doing so may result in “unexpected” visual effects. Sony didn’t provide an exact date for VRR’s launch, but it did mention that it will finally launch “in the next few months.”

The previous PS5 update arrived two weeks ago, although as usual, this console patch doesn’t do much other than add standard system performance improvements. The last notable firmware update is the September 2021 release: Patch 21.02-04.00.00, which allows M.2 SSD drives to be installed into the console’s expansion slot.
