PS4 Firmware Update 7.00 Beta invites have started rolling out today.
The PS4 Fw 7.00 update upgrades several features including the biggest change which is increasing party size to 16. Apparently voice chat quality will also be improved, hopefully it’s similar to high quality VoIP like what’s available on Discord and other services.
Luckily it’s not that hard to get your hand on a code as a single Beta invite can be used 20 times. So if a friend of yours registered for the Beta then you can simply ask them for a code.
Do note due to the major changes in the update you won’t be able to join a party or share play with players on the official firmware. You’ll only be limited to do those activities with those participating in the Beta.
Another big change in PS4 Firmware 7.00 Beta is that your PS4, no matter what model, will not need to restart to install updates. Once the new update is out, future updates will be automatically installed after they’re downloaded given the auto updates toggle is turned on.
We’re not sure exactly when the new update will be out, but shouldn’t take more than a few weeks.
