PlayStation is rolling out a limited beta update for the PlayStation App on mobile devices. Said beta lets PS5 users upload screenshots and video captures, which can then be viewed and shared through the app. However, this test run is currently only available in Japan and Canada, on both iOS and Android devices.
In any case, this is clearly Sony testing the waters. By enabling the update on the app, your linked PS5 will automatically upload screenshots and videos saved to your console. These shares will stay up there in the cloud for 14 days after being uploaded, and in this timeframe, you can do whatever you want with them through the app, which includes downloading them to you mobile device.
There is a limitation on video capture, though: gameplay videos have to be under three minutes in length and not captured in 4K for them to be uploaded.
This all sounds like a welcome update for the PlayStation App, which hasn't received any major changes or additions in quite some time. Hopefully this beta period goes smoothly, and Sony considers rolling the update out in full at some point in the future.
Yessssss I need this feature for my Guilty Gear clips lol
very sluggish this, this was available for stadia right around launch as far as I can remember, previously a huge pain to get stuff on your phone if you don't bother with awful awful social media
Finally! I’ve been wanting this for years.
Doubt I'd use this much personally, but seems like a welcome and useful addition.
Only 14 days? This is a good feature but could have been better.
I have Xbox screenshots from several years available still.
Canada gets everything first.
Who did Canada sleep with?!? Or what incriminating evidence does it have?!?
It’s ok they’ll be super polite and apologetic about it. Good eggs that they are.
@Jarobusa tbh Xbox does absolutely everything better. Except games and controllers and their UI…. But on the whole they do stuff better…. Fridges especially.
Not really bothered about sharing stuff, but maybe might be cool to grab stuff to use as wallpaper on the phone.
I wish I was Canadian
Bring back to where we can change our Profile Cover Art (Background Image), idk why they even took it off the app
On behalf of all Canadians, we are sorry we got it first, Sony believed that we wouldn't just fill it with video and screenshots of RDR2 horse poops. (Sorry sony we are just as bad as every other country, and not as polite as every one thinks)Sorry this note is so long everyone
Good day eh!
Oh hey, another excuse to move to Canada.
I actually enjoy the app. It's way easier messaging Friends on it than with a controller.
I'll never use this, but nice feature!
Does this mean I don’t have to upload my ESO parses to YouTube before posting to Discord?
I'm not interested in the pictures I take in the real world, as they are just a crappy version of your memory, or the random ones the PS5 saves to the console every now and then, nevermind anyone I would share it with. Need to find the option to turn the random saving off as it is taking up space on the SSD.
Is this cloud space that these videos take up free or only for PS Plus members as people who make a lot of these will take up more space on the cloud than their save games?
Nice, it's a hassle to upload ps5 games screenshot pictures to twitter and then downloading it, or using usb. Can't wait for this update.
@Stocksy controllers definitely better , lol .
We need it on the console dash again too. Still one of the major advantages PS4 holds.
