Update: New PS5 Update Includes Dolby Atmos, Larger SSD Capacity, And More Following Beta Period

Update, 9/13/23:

Earlier this summer, a forthcoming PlayStation 5 update entered a beta period for select users to try. This beta update featured Dolby Atmos support, increased SSD capacity, and more. Now, that beta is over and the update has begun rolling out to all PS5 users. Alongside the previously mentioned Dolby Atmos support and increased SSD capacity, this update also features new accessibility features, like being able to use a second DualSense controller for assistance, new voice command options, the ability to mute the console’s start-up/boot-down beep sound, additional social features, and more PS App functionality. 

Let’s break everything down:
