Sony shows its love for the PlayStation app with some new features
The app update also includes a few other features. And Sony promises more features are on the way. Oddly enough, the Wish List was available in the new PlayStation app from the time the redesign went live. But between then and now, Sony pulled it out.
As of this week’s update, the Wish List has now returned to the PlayStation app. You can now save games that you might want to try out even if you are not on the website or on your console. This update isn’t just for the Wish List. And to be completely honest, there’s a lot more to it.
The PlayStation app wishlist is just the tip of the iceberg
The wishlist is a big comeback. And the one who probably should never have left the app in the first place. Regardless of that, this update introduces two more features for users.
One of these is the ability for the app to notify you when your friends go online. This should be very useful for those who may be waiting for friends to jump online. Let’s say you all plan to play together for a few hours one night and you are the first to play. No longer will you have to sit in front of the console while you wait just to see when everyone is ready.
Instead, you can take care of some things around the house that you might be planning on doing. In addition to friend alerts, the app now allows you to change your online status. If for some reason you want to hide whether you are online or not.
Soon you will be able to join PS5 multiplayer game sessions from the app
Sony really wants to make it as easy as possible to participate in gaming sessions with friends. So to help it adds the ability to join multiplayer gaming sessions on the PS5 from within the app.
This is one of the features that will be added in the coming weeks. So it’s not something that’s available at the moment. Sony is also adding the ability to compare trophies, track and manage your console’s storage. It is already possible to download games to your console from the app.
But that poses a problem if there is no more space left. Or not enough space. In the future, you may be able to delete games to make room for new ones. All this from your phone. The update for the app launched earlier this week, so all users should have it now.
