Coming soon: PlayStation Preview Program with early access to updated Party features

We are getting ready to test an update to the Party function on PlayStation 4, and can use some help from PS4 owners! Soon you will be able to sign up for a chance to participate in the Preview Program for an advance look at the new Party features.

Once you have joined, you can expect to see the following updates to Party:

  • Increased maximum Party participants from 8 to 16
  • Improved audio quality for voice chat
  • Improved network connectivity

Do note, that if you participate in the Preview Program, you won’t be able to join the same Party or use Share Play with others who aren’t participating in the program.

However, the preview code we’ll be providing can be redeemed by 20 different qualifying accounts, so share the code with your friends and try out the new Party updates together! Once you participate in the Preview Program, Parties that you’re able to join will have an asterisk (*) in front of the Party name.

In addition, US testers will have early access to the chat transcription feature that will be available through Party and the PS4 Second Screen app. By using this feature, you can convert Party voice chat to text on your Second Screen app, or enter text into your app which will be read aloud to other Party members. This feature will only be available in the US, and only in English.

Many thanks to everyone who signs up! Your feedback helps us make our feature updates even better*.

*Features and changes in Preview Program are not final, with no fixed release date, and subject to change without notice.
