Gotten your brand new PS5? Use these 5 Tips and Tricks for it.

Now that you’ve finally gotten a brand-new PlayStation 5 for yourself, you’re afraid that you won’t be able to keep your hands off it. I know the feeling, and I must say congratulations to you.

But here’s a big idea. While the PS5 is a super cool play station on its own, you can get the best out of it and probably explore the PlayStation to have a different level of gaming experience.

So do you want to learn all of these tricks and be a master of your new PS5? I’ll walk you through the whole process.

  1. Preserve energy

Make no mistake about it, the DualSense battery that comes with your PlayStation 5 lacks an automatic turn off feature. 

But, there’s a way for you around that. All you need to do is to visit the gear icon located at the upper right-hand side of the main interface. 

After that, proceed to open the system and power saving. Once you’ve cracked it, set the turn off time according to your preference.

Note: Set the time to either a value of 10 minutes, 30 minutes, or 60 minutes.

  1. Manage notifications

Just like smartphones, managing notifications can help you save the battery life of your PS5 and also improve the user experience for you. 

Think I’m exaggerating? You should give it a trial. Here’s how to go about blocking unwanted notifications on your brand new PlayStation 5.

At the upper right-hand side of your screen, select the gear icon, and proceed to choose notifications. This is the point where you get to block the notifications you consider unnecessary and also set the notifications you deem fit to appear on your console screen.

Remember that these notifications can befriend requests, trophies, messages, system functions, etc.

It does not stop there. You have the power also to designate when these notifications should come up, probably while playing or during video playback. 

  1. Stay off spoilers

Both the screenshot sent and that which the developer termed a spoiler can be well hidden and included respectively by your PS5 if the gameplay is viewed exceeding the points reached.

But, that’s not a problem. Put to use the gear icon located at the upper right-hand side of your interface and select saved data and game/app settings. This is finalized by choosing a spoiler warning. 

That’s how ridiculously easy it is for you to verify the protection on your PS5.

  1. Control your PS5 with the app

The good news is that you can control your PS5 from your android or iOS using the PlayStation app. With some updated aesthetics and added new features, you can access your PS5 store, manage storage, and kick-off download to start games.

  1. Clean dust collectors

One of the keys to the smooth running of your PS5 is to clean the dust collectors from time to time. You can gain access to these dust collectors, which are located at the side of your PS5 after you must have removed the plate.
