The Major PS5 Update Bringing Internal SSD Upgrade Support And More Is Finally Coming Tomorrow

Almost two months after announcing the update and releasing it for beta users, PlayStation has confirmed that the next major PS5 update will drop tomorrow.

This update will not only bring PS5 M.2 SSD storage support meaning that users can expand their internal PS5 storage for actually playing PS5 games, but it will also bring 3D audio support for built-in TV speakers as well as a number of enhancements to control centre.

Other new features in the update include control centre changes which allows you to hide and rearrange, an enhanced game base, which allows you to write messages to friends more easily, PS4 and PS5 games will now be way more easy to tell apart and a new trophy tracker will let you track up to five trophies per game through the control centre.

Sony has said there’s a number of changes coming to the mobile app as well as the remote play app next week as well, so hopefully we’ll hear more about those in the near future. We now know that you’ll now be able to use the remote play app to play PS4/PS5 games using mobile data.
