New PlayStation 5 Update Brings a Number of Great Features to the System, Including 1440P Output and Game Lists

A new update is rolling out globally as we speak for PlayStation 5 owners. The biggest addition is the ability to set your games to run at 1440p 120hz, if your monitor supports it. However, if your monitor supports Variable Refresh Rate, you won’t be able to take advantage of it, as it only works for 1080p and 4K.

Another big feature is the ability to create gamelists, which lets you organize your games in what are basically folders sorted by genre, the system it was released on, whether you own the game or it’s on PS Plus, and whatever else crosses your mind.

For the multimedia enjoyers, you can now use voice commands to open YouTube and tell it to search for something to watch, no matter where you are on the console. This is especially useful if you’re having trouble with a boss in a video game. For instance, you can say “Hey PlayStation, find God of War Valkyrie fight on YouTube”.

Lastly, there’s some improvements to the PS App. You can now start Remote Play from the PS app, and you can also request a screen share from another party member from there.
