PS5 Update 7.00 Implements Discord, Notes and more
Sony has released a new system software update for the PlayStation 5, bringing several enhancements to the console. The update’s main features include support for 1440p video output, VRR (variable refresh rate), and expanded HDMI device compatibility. Additionally, the update brings full Discord integration to the PS5, allowing players to join voice chats directly from their console.
This PS5 Update 7.00 significantly improves the console’s performance and functionality, with 1440p support, VRR, expanded HDMI device compatibility, and full Discord integration. Players can easily install the update by going to Settings > System > System Software > Update System Software.
The addition of 1440p support is a significant improvement for players who use gaming monitors, as this resolution is commonly used on those devices. VRR support ensures that gameplay is smoother and more fluid, with reduced stuttering and tearing. The expanded HDMI device compatibility means more devices are now supported, and players can easily test their compatibility by going to Settings > Output > Test 1440p Output.
One of the most exciting additions to the PS5 in this update is the full integration of Discord. Players can now join voice chats directly from their console, making communicating with friends and gaming communities easier while playing. Sony CEO Jim Ryan announced this feature in May 2021, and the company has made a minority investment in Discord as part of its Series H funding round.
