Nothing like Sony dropping news regarding cool new firmware updates at 4AM! Are you ready to go BEYOND 8-player party chats? How would you like to have up to 15 of your closest Brahs yelling over one another at the same time?
By joining the PlayStation Preview Program you’ll get the chance to do so before the feature launches later this year! There is one stipulation though. You won’t be about to join non-beta testers parties/use share play. Thankfully Sony is allowing your voucher code to be shared with 20 other PSN Users. (Note: parties you can join will feature an asterisk before the chat name)
The other features? ‘improved voice chat quality’ along with ‘improved network connectivity’. Chat transcript is also coming to party chat and the second screen app. Transfer your chat to text thanks to the SSA. You can then enter text on the SSA which will then be read aloud to the party chat. Praying for a swanky robo-voice, Brah! (Note: this feature is only available in the US and is only in English)
We will update this article with the EU link once it’s live.
