UPDATE: Following this update, users see a notification about group security and that voice chats in groups can be recorded. Voice Chat Recording for Moderation is a feature that will be available on PS5 when it launches and will allow users to record their voice chats on PS5 and submit them for moderation review. The pop-up you are currently seeing on PS4 informs you that when you join a chat with a PS5 user (post-launch), they can submit those recordings from their PS5 console to SIE.


Our latest system software update for PlayStation 4, version 8.00, is released worldwide today. This update includes changes to existing Party and Messages functionality, new avatars, updated parental controls and more.

Here are some of the key features of this update:

Party updates and messages

Following this update, Party and Messages will be more closely linked and you will see changes in the user interface. The two apps will now use the same “groups” of players for voice chats and group message exchanges, instead of having different groups configured on the two apps. So now you can start a group chat or message the group that you previously chatted with on PS4, as well as PS5 when it launched.

New avatars

We are expanding the collection of predefined avatars that players can feature on their profile. An array of new avatars from your favorite games will be available including Bloodborne, Journey, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, The Last of Us Part II, The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and many more.

Mute all microphones from the quick menu

We’ve added an option to “Mute all microphones” in the quick menu, so you can easily mute your microphones while you play.

Simplified and more flexible parental controls

In the context of parental controls, we combine “Communication with other players” and “Viewing content created by other players” into a single setting – “Communication and user-generated content” – to cover both areas. UGC communication and sharing. This provides a simpler framework that is easier for parents to understand and apply to their children.

In addition, children can send a request to their parents to use the communication functions in specific games. When a child sends this request, the parent receives an email notification and can choose to make an exception for that game and allow the child to use their UGC communications and features. This will provide more flexibility for parents and children.

Improved two-step verification

Two-step verification (2SV) functionality on PS4 will be enhanced to support optional third-party authentication apps during activation flow and 2SV login on PS4, mobile and web.

Removal of event creation and private community creation

After 8:00 a.m., you will no longer be able to create events or access existing events created by other users.

We’re also removing the ability to create private communities in the Community app on PS4. If you already have existing Private Communities, you can continue to access them.

Updates to the Remote Play app on mobile and PC

At the same time as 8.00, the existing PS4 Remote Play app on mobile (iOS / Android), Windows PC and Mac, will change its name to PS Remote Play, and the option to connect to PS5 will be added. You’ll need to sign in to PSN from your PS5 to be able to access the feature, so stay seated until the PS5 launches in November!

As a reminder, a PS4 system with a wired connection via a LAN cable is recommended to download the update.
