7 Hidden PS5 New Features

These are some of the lesser-known PS5 options and features  that we are going to detail:

  • Options in user profiles
  • Predefined settings (default game difficulty, camera …)
  • Customize DualSense Quick Access
  • Options related to managing PS5 game data and saves
  • Privacy settings
  • Screenshots and videos of the trophies
  • New Accessibility features

As we know that some -although in reality there are many- of you want to squeeze out the functionalities of your new PlayStation 5, today in this report we leave you with  7 hidden PS5 features that we have discovered playing with it. 

Are you ready to find out what you can do with it in a few days? Well, let’s go

1. Changes and news in the user profile

The new PS5 user profile is radically different. On the one hand, we have in the General Information tab a look at our trophies achieved, the accolades, our games, and friends in total. What is praise? As it is a system similar to Overwatch & watch dogs legion, you can give and receive a compliment per multiplayer game. 

Now you can also see the time you played your games and a detailed look at all the captures and videos you have shared.

2. Difficulty, camera and presets

If you are one of those who always play in a difficulty mode and with some preferred settings, you are in luck: PS5 allows you to set the preferred difficulty in games. 

It is indeed a bit annoying to change them whenever you enter a new game, now all that can be changed.

In Preset Settings you can select a single configuration for all games, selecting aspects such as difficulty, inverted axes in first and/or third person, if you prefer to play in resolution or performance mode

 in this way, those options will be the ones that will be activated automatically when entering any game and you will not have to touch anything. It’s about making the most of your time, and not wasting it on these details.

3. Customize DualSense Quick Access

With this function, you can choose what you want to appear in the console bar, such as accessibility, functions, sound, and more. 

It is the bar that appears when you press the PS button a couple of times, at the bottom of the screen, and that has fully customizable shortcuts, to choose between different functions and options of the console, such as starting a broadcast, music, accessibility … You choose what you want to appear. 

4. You will not be able to save the PS5 games or the games saved on an external medium (USB disk, pendrive …)

PS5 games will not be able to be moved to an external USB drive, much less run from external drives. The only thing, when the time comes, will be the M.2 expansion disks that will be placed in the bay dedicated for that purpose, although it is an option that is not yet available. 

What was not known is that we will not be able to make a copy of our games and remove them from PS5 with USB storage. To this day, the only way to keep our PS5 saved games safe is with PS Plus, making a copy in the cloud.

With PS4 games on PS5, everything works like on PS4, that is, we can run them directly from an external USB medium, either an  SSD / HDD connected to the console through a USB. 

In this way, you can store your PS4 games and reserve the internal SSD storage of the console for PS5 games (although you can also move them between the internal and external disk).

5. Greater privacy options

Now on PS5, you will not have to worry about privacy and everything that other console users can see. 

Sony has implemented four levels and states of privacy. Solo, Friends, Team player, and Socially open, in each one you will choose who to interact with if they do it with you and at the lowest level, no one will be able to see anything on your console.

6. Screenshots and small clips of your trophies

As we already told you a week ago, trophies have a new look and ways of being displayed and saved  – something that was seen in an example from Astro’s Playroom – and that you can now relive every time you want to see how you got a trophy. However, you can choose where to save these clips and even indicate the option so that no videos are made, their duration … They are usually quite light MP4 videos.

7. New Accessibility features

Here, as you can see in the images, is where there are more different options

You can resize the text, make it bold, activate the screen reader to read everything – even make the voice male or female – and even convert the voice chat of other players into groups and games so that everything is read in voice aloud.

Final words about the ps5 new features :

These are the 7 PS5 New features of that are not in sight and that we have discovered playing with it. 

Remember that this is just the beginning, and that on launch day there will be a new firmware, which will add new functionality that has not been available even in the analysis phase of the console (for example, all the multimedia apps part). So in less than two weeks, we may have some new secret PS5 features to tell …
