PS5 Beta Adds 1440p Resolution, Social Fixes, and More

Sony is testing several new PlayStation 5 personalization and social features in the latest PS5 beta.

Sony’s latest beta for the still somewhat hard to find console is testing several new features (which may or may not see a larger release in the future).


In this beta, Sony introduces 1440p as a resolution option for compatible TVs and computer monitors. Sony says using the 1440p setting on a higher resolution monitor could improve anti-aliasing and make things a little smoother.

Playlists, which allow you to sort the games in your library into different categories of your choice, have also been added as an organization option. The feature now allows up to 15 separate lists, with each list containing up to 100 different titles.


Many social features are also being tested, including an option for group members to request screen sharing from others if they want to watch their gameplay. If one of those party members starts playing, you can log in to join them directly via the pop-up notification.

The latest PS5 beta test is available today for selected attendees via email invitation in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, UK and US Sony said it expects these features (subject to change or removal as is one more beta) will be publicly available later this year.
