PlayStation 5 users will get more and more flexibility in how they can share their game shots, according to an announcement made on Wednesday by Sony. The console maker has announced that it is “gradually rolling out the ability to share your PS5 game screenshots via the PS App in more regions! The Americas rose first, with more countries coming next month. ”
The PS app allows users to scroll through clips, watch them, download them to mobile devices, and easily post them on social media. It does not require a PlayStation Plus membership to use. Sony clarified in an FAQ following the announcement that “your captures are stored for 14 days on SIE’s cloud servers in order to make them available to you via the PlayStation App”.
Game capture allows players to take a snapshot or record a video from their recent game. This is ideal for sharing those great competitive moments where you hit a great shot sequence or goofy single-player campaign moments that you’d love to share with your friends.
Currently, sharing of these game shots via the PS App is only available in Canada and Japan. Now that the feature is rolling out to more regions, followed by the Americas, it will be easier for players to navigate and share their clips. Obviously not required, but it’s a definitely nice feature to have, especially if you just want to share a silly or fun moment from a game without jumping through hoops.
Sony will announce details later on which regions will get access to the feature next, but it will be “gradually rolled out in the Americas” in the near future.
