Sony is testing a new PS5 feature that makes sharing screenshots easier
The feature is currently being testing in Canada and Japan.
Sony is working on a way to make it a little bit easier for users to share screenshots that they’ve taken with their PlayStation 5. The company recently revealed a new feature that will transfer the screenshots and video captures taken from your PS5 straight to your phone via the PlayStation app.
According to a company announcement earlier this week, this new feature is currently in the early test stages. Right now, the feature is in a limited release beta period in Japan and Canada.
Sony says that this new feature will allow you to save screenshots and video recordings at a resolution up to 1920×1080. Anything saved in a higher resolution than that, the company says will not be uploaded to the PlayStation app.
According to Sony’s frequently asked questions about the new feature, screen captures will remain on the PlayStation app for up to 14 days after they are captured on your console. The captures will even persist on the app after you have deleted them off of your console.
Sony’s page with more information seems to only be accessible to individuals in Canada and Japan for right now. Fortunately, The Verge was able to access the page and upload some screenshots of the frequently asked questions surrounding this new feature.
This will be a pretty cool feature for PS5 owners. Having screenshots and video captures uploaded automatically to the PlayStation app on your phone will help eliminate some of the annoying steps you would previously have to go through to share your gaming achievements.
