 First Major PS5 April update coming tomorrow, Allows PS5 games to be Stored on USB Drives and brings new Social features.


PlayStation has announced that the first major system software update for PS5 is carrying out for consoles in all areas tomorrow and carries improvements to storage, social features, and control and personalization alternatives.

As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the April Update will permit you to move PlayStation 5 games to an external USB storage device when they're not being used, freeing up valuable hard drive space for new titles. Nonetheless, it ought to be noticed that games can't be played from an external USB device as said titles are made to utilize the Console’s high-speed SSD, even though PlayStation guarantee that it still intends to make storage expansion using M.2 drives accessible later on. 


Also included in the update will be Cross-generation Share Play features, permitting PS5 console owners to share their game screen to their PS4 companions and surprisingly let them give them a shot utilizing Share Play. A determination of joinable Share Play meetings will also be available across both consoles. 


Different upgrades incorporate an Improved Game Base element, the ability to Disable Game Chat and adjust singular players volumes within a chat, a Game Update Pre-download feature allowing you to pre-load patches similarly, as you would a pre-order game, a Screen Zoom include for accessibility, enhancements to the game library and another Trophy Settings and Stats screen so you can check your trophy at a glance and lastly, a few updates to the PlayStation application.


According to Bloomberg, a firmware update will empower the utilization of the M.2 SSD expansion slot by permitting the internal fans to run at a higher speed. Overheating concerns were a factor in not enabling the slot at dispatch, and you can't play or store PS5 games on an outside drive. These more traditional external drives can be utilized for storing and playing PS4 games, yet clients (counting me) have seen issues with the console hard-crashing with the drives connected.


The update is expected to roll out globally to PlayStation 5 consoles from tomorrow, so keep your eye out for it then.
