Sony refreshes the PlayStation app with native store integration, voice chat, and more

Sony is rolling out a refreshed PlayStation app today that should improve your gaming experience on the PlayStation 4 and 5. The updated app adds a bunch of new features including a new interface, a native messaging tool, built-in PS Store integration, and more.

The app's fresh interface will let you view the games your friends are playing via the home screen. You can also see the titles you've recently played along with your Trophy List. In addition, there's an integrated messaging system that lets you communicate with friends from within the app, no need for a separate messaging app like before. That also means PS Messages will be shuttered after this change. That said, the new PS app will contain your older messages.

In addition, you can shop and browse using the new native PS Store experience as well as remotely download games and add-ons directly to your console. The app includes new capabilities that are PlayStation 5-specific. When the new-generation console rolls out, you will be able to launch games and manage its storage, all via remote access. You can also sign in to the console directly from the app.

Another feature introduced by the new app is voice chat that lets you chat with up to 15 people. There's also the ability to create party groups and see news updates via the Explore tab.

The refreshed app will be released today worldwide. It will be available to download on iOS 12.2 or later and Android 6.0 or later.
