Sony Is Testing 16-Person Parties For PS4

While PC Gamers are well familiar with the likes of Discord or Skype, console gamers have to rely on built-in voice chat functions to talk with their friends on their consoles. Bigger parties is something that players have been asking about for a while now, and it's good to see Sony expanding the options available to PlayStation 4 users.

Sony is also testing a new accessibility feature that would turn party chat to text on the PlayStation mobile app and would also convert typed text to speech.

In the new update, Sony is increasing the maximum party participants from 8 to 16.

For now there's no time frame on when the new preview will be available or indeed when Sony might look to roll out the features to the wider public. This will give you the ability to have double the amount of people (16) in a single chat room*.

UAE: 'Sophisticated' tanker attacks likely work of state actor

PS4 firmware update 6.71 has been released today and you might be wondering what it actually does, so here's some information on this new system software update.

With a preview code, however, these can be redeemed on 20 different accounts, so you can share the love with your buddies. Remember, though, that if you take part in the preview program, you can only join groups that include other members of the program.

While Sony is not attending E3 2019 next week, the PlayStation company still has news to share, specifically about its much-anticipated next-generation console. From the app, you can voice chat to text or enter the text manually and the app will read aloud what you said to the other members in the party.
