Several new additions

by Damian Seeto


Update 9.00 has arrived for the PS4 console, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

The PS5 is not the only console that has been a system update today. Rolling out now is a new system firmware update for the PS4 console. The update is version number 9.00.

If you have a PS4 console, you’ll have to download around 490 MB of data for the update itself. For most people, this shouldn’t take too long to download and install.

One of the new features is that you can view PS5 trophies that you’ve earned through the PS4 console. You can read the full patch notes below.

PS4 System Firmware Update 9.00 Patch Notes

Main features in the system software update

You can now view trophies for PS5 games on PS4:

  • In (Trophies), you can now view PS5 trophies in your trophy list.
    You can also view PS5 trophies in the trophy list on the profile screen under the [Games] tab.
  • In (Messages) we’ve updated the following:
  • If you’re the owner of a group, you can now delete it. To delete a group, open the options menu and then select [Delete Group]. If you delete a group, it will be deleted for all members.
  • Now when you block someone, you can choose to also leave the group that only you and they are in at the same time. You won’t leave groups that include other players.

Other updated features

  • On an Android or iOS/iPadOS device, you can now use the PS Remote Play app to access your PS4 via mobile data.
  • We’ve made the following improvements to parental controls:
    • Now when a child requests to use communications features for a game, their parents or guardian will receive a notification on the PS4 and PlayStation App.
    • The child will also receive a notification when their parent or guardian accepts, denies, or stops allowing the child to use communication features for a game.
  • You can now select whether you’d like to receive notifications on your PS4 or via email about new products and special offers. To do so, go to [Settings] > [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Communication Preferences]
