In addition to new features, the old features are improved and developed. Two major changes stand out from the crowd. It starts with a party feature update that lets you join groups of other PS4 players. Their size is raised with the update from eight to 16 users.

In addition, network connections and audio quality have been improved to meet the now larger number of users. In addition, there is a text-to-speech function in the USA that we unfortunately still have to do without.
