Sony has just released the latest PS5 system software update — always a glorious day on Planet PlayStation. Coming in at just over 1GB, it's available to download and install now. The question is, as always, what does the update do?

As per the official patch notes, there are a few improvements, mostly pertaining to Game Help. A new Community Game Help feature. Essentially, this expands PS5's Game Help system by presenting you with gameplay videos from other players. You can opt in or out of having your gameplay videos shared through this feature.

You can also now hide your Remote Play connection status, if you're worried about that.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • Game Help has been expanded by adding Community Game Help features.
    • In Game Help, you will see hints labeled Community Game Help in supported games, which indicates that the hint was generated from other players' gameplay videos.
    • You can participate in Community Game Help by allowing your gameplay video to be automatically captured and added to the feature upon review.
      To opt in, go to Settings > Captures & Broadcasts > Captures > Auto Captures > Community Game Help, and then select Participate. You can also opt out at any time.
  • In Remote Play, if the persistent message "Remote Play connected." is displayed during Remote Play, you can now hide this on your game screen. Go to Settings > System > Remote Play and turn on Hide Remote Play Connection Status.
  • We've improved system software performance and stability.
  • We've improved the messages and usability on some screens.
