System update 7.00 comes to PS4 later this week and introduces some huge changes

Sony's popular PlayStation 4 console is due to receive another big firmware update this week, and 7.0 patch is poised to introduce a slew of new features to the PlayStation 4 – many of which will improve the general quality of life for gamers, no matter what thir tastes.

Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that the PlayStation 4 System Software Update 7.00 will launch worldwide in the week commencing October 7.

The update, which has been available to beta users since July, will introduce larger parties, HDR calibration, but lose the ability to browse Facebook on the console – which may be a shock to some users.

Via Reddit , a PlayStation user was noted that they could not access their Facebook account from PlayStation. PlayStation Network replied and noted that the site will no longer support Facebook starting today – 07 October 2019. A further explanation was not given.

Which PlayStation exclusive are you most excited for?


The first thing to note is that now players will be able to join and host bigger parties when playing on the PS4.

The 8-person party limit will double to 16 once the update has rolled out, meaning you can assemble far larger groups for games or viewing parties.

Update 7.00 also introduces better network connectivity and audio quality, and US users get a new accessibility function that includes text-to-speech and transcription options in parties and in games, which is a useful tool to have for people that may have hearing or communication issues.

Update 7.00 will also add Remote Play for Android 5.0 and higher.

Remote Play is already available on iOS (and we highly recommend it! It's how we used to go get our Xur fix in Destiny 2 when we were away from the console), and now Android users get a slice of the pie, too.

Yes, that was an OS joke.

This update also comes with controller support for mobiles, so players using Android 10 can use the PS4 pad on their device. This has been available on iOS for a while.

No specific date has been added for the update, but expect to see it hit your console by the end of the week, latest.
