Quality of life improvements includes the ability to search games in your library and the option to turn off that annoying beep every time you turn the PS5 on and off. Game help cards, which show spoiler-free tips about progress, have received a visual update that makes it easier to find details. Lastly, it's worth noting that the SSD storage limit has been increased from 4TB to 8 TB.

The beta version is starting today, with "chosen" users being invited by email to participate. It is currently accessible in the USA, Canada, Japan, the UK, Germany, and France. The worldwide release of the update is planned for "later this year."
