SONY is adding a long overdue feature to the PlayStation 5 that makes sharing screenshots a million times easier.
The update allows you to access screenshots and clips contained on your PS5 on your mobile phone via the PlayStation App.
Discovered @ GamingIntPhoto1 on Twitter, the Media Library seems to give players the option to upload screenshots and clips of them.
They can then be viewed on the PS App for a limited period of 14 days.
As well as the two-week countdown, clips will be limited to three minutes.
The feature has been tested in Japan and Canada, but is available to some North American users.
However, in a next tweet, @GamingIntPhoto1 noted that this feature has been removed.
This led to speculation that it was on top of being officially rolled out in a software update and that the trigger was accidentally pulled too early.
Xbox owners already have this handy feature on their Xbox Series X | S.
When a player on the console takes a screenshot or clip, they can access it on the Xbox app.
Currently, if you want to get a clip or screen taken from a game on PS5, you have to use another solution.
One is to upload to social media from your dashboard and then download from Facebook or Twitter.
Another way is to create a chat on PSN with a friend or alt account and send your photo on it.
You can then access them on the PS App and download them to your phone.
Hopefully Sony is planning to make this feature official in the near future.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the February software update over the next few weeks.
