PlayStation 5 getting huge update completely overhauling the UI

There is some big news for PlayStation 5 users as Sony appears to be rolling out a huge update which is set to completely overhaul the system’s UI.

This news comes courtesy of YouTuber Mystic who posted a video earlier today showing off the impressive new PlayStation 5 UI. The update comes before an official confirmation from Sony but players are already eager to get their first look at the first major UI update since the system first launched in 2020.

Check out the PlayStation 5 below!

As you can see from the video, there are quite a few dramatic changes including the ability to change background images. Whereas the previous display featured gaming news, advertisements and eventually widgets showing trophies, the new update expands on this by adding widgets dedicated to battery life, headset and controller life, console storage, friend activity and more.

Not only can you change the background image but you can also add dynamic wallpapers to give your PlayStation 5 home screen a new lease of life. If you see something you don’t like on your Explore page, you will now seemingly be able to adjust it. However, you will not be able to rearrange any widgets.

According to Mystic, this UI update is still in beta and available to players in the United States. However, we can expect it to be rolled out to all players when Sony makes an announcement.

In the meantime, players have taken to the comments to share their thoughts. One viewer said: “I love that they included a friends activity tab! The PS5 felt like I was completely disconnected from my friends when playing single player. I loved it when you could see trophies and what people were playing on PS4.”

Another player suggested another way Sony could improve on the update. “More of our downloaded games on the home screen would be cool so we can easily start them,” they wrote. “Maybe have two rows of games instead of one? It's a pain if you have too many and some stay hidden until you start/play them.”

It will surely not be long before this huge upgrade is rolled out to all PlayStation 5 players so stay tuned!
