PlayStation 4 users are always voicing their opinions on what they want Sony to add to the PlayStation UI and new features. Throughout the last few updates, Sony responded to a few, especially allowing players to finally change their PSN IDs.
The PS4 system software update 7.00 beta is currently underway, and the studio sent out invites to people to try out the new features to get feedback and polish them before going live with it. The new software version brings up the PlayStation Party limit from eight to sixteen people, and allows users to download and install software updates without restarting their consoles.
Be one of the first players to try out the new PS4™ Party update, as part of the PlayStation® Beta experience. Play, chat and connect with even more friends online, as we’re boosting Party sessions from eight to 16 players – this brand-new feature is due to release in System Software Update 7.00.
Performance for system updates is also being improved, meaning your PS4™ won’t always need to restart after every update. Going forwards, select system software updates will automatically be installed after download if the [System Software Update Files] setting is switched on, found under:
[Settings] > [System] > [Auto Downloads]
If you participate in this Beta trial, you won’t be able to join the same Party or use Share Play with others who aren’t also participating in the trial. Once you’ve opted in to the trial, Parties that you’re able to join will have an asterisk (*) in front of the Party name.
Let us know if you are in the lucky ones who were invited to try out PS4’s 7.00 system software features.
