PS4 System Update 7.0 Releases this Week along with Remote Play to Devices Running Android 5.0 and Up
Sony has finally announced that the PS4 system update 7.0 will be released globally this week. Until now, it was in beta from the past few weeks, but now the latest update is finally going to arrive for everyone globally.
The latest system update brings a lot of changes to the PlayStation 4 including some refinements in Sony’s gaming system. However, one of the biggest highlights of this update is the party capacity is being doubled, jumping from 8 players to 16. Sony also promises that gamers will get better connectivity and audio quality across the board.
Apart from some additions to the platform, Sony is also removing one of the significant features from the platform. According to a new post on Reddit, Sony is about to end Facebook support on the PS4. PlayStation Asia seemingly confirmed as much in a message to a user in need of assistance. According to PlayStation Asia support, Facebook functionality will end on October 7.
Apart from that, Sony is extending the reach of its Remote Play. Smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 or higher will be able to stream PS4 games – all you need to do is go download the PS4 Remote Play App from the Google Play store. Update 7.00 also brings some neat iOS Remote Play improvements, such as the ability to display the on-screen controller at all times.
As of now, Sony didn’t announce any fixed date for the arrival of update 7.0. But the company confirmed that it could be launched anytime this week. Normally, we’ll let you know when it’s available to download.
