:alert: Those not registered in Sony's PlayStation Preview Program will not be able to install Beta PUPs as they require a valid PS4 license for installation, and as DEFAULTDNB confirmed be aware that you can only downgrade to the current highest released OFW regardless of what Firmware you updated from. :alert:

  • The following changes have been made to Party and Messages
    • When starting a party, you can now choose to create a new group or select an existing group. When you create a new group, it’ll be saved even after the party has ended. You can start a new party with the same members by selecting the group that you previously created.
    • You can now use your group across party and messages. you can send messages to a group you created for a party, or start a party with a group you’ve messaged with.
    • Messages have been added to the screen during parties. When you select messages, you’ll see the messages exchanged between members of your group.

Think reason for beta is testing. Figure release it under beta to see if hackable and sense beta can patch any vunerable areas to patch for ps5 release. I mean why release it under beta and not an official release.
