Earlier this week Sony released the 8.00 PS4 Firmware Update followed by a PlayStation 4 Notification on Party Chat recordings with upcoming PS5 console users, and today they clarified details on the new Voice Chat Recording functionality coming to PlayStation 5 next month. 😎

Below are the details on this PS5 Scene news from PlayStation's Global Consumer Experience VP Catherine Jensen, to quote:

Hi everyone. I’m Catherine Jensen, and I head up the Global Consumer Experience division here at PlayStation. Our department works every day to create the best possible gaming experience for our community on PlayStation Network.

We also manage the AskPlayStation customer support channel and create troubleshooting guides to help gamers find solutions. Our goal is to help foster a fun and positive experience when you’re playing online with friends and other gamers.

Managing online safety is an important part of ensuring that. We believe that it’s critical that gamers be able to quickly and accurately report abuse or harassment if they experience it while on PlayStation Network. As part of this initiative, we’ve been preparing to roll out a new feature on the PS5 console that enables gamers to report verbal harassment through a new Voice Chat reporting function.

Its sole purpose is to help in reporting of inappropriate behavior, including actions that violate our Community Code of Conduct. Please note that this feature will not actively monitor or listen in on your conversations – ever – and it’s strictly reserved for reporting online abuse or harassment.

PlayStation gamers learned about this new function in an unexpected way following the recent PS4 8.00 system update. We didn’t clearly communicate this feature or explain why we were introducing it, and we apologize for that. When the PS5 console launches in November, PS5 users will be able to chat with PS4 users — which is why we needed to include an advisory with the latest PS4 system update.

We should have more clearly explained why this function was being rolled out, along with details on how it will work on the PS5 console, so let me walk you through that now.

Once the PS5 console launches, if a PS5 player needs to file a harassment report, they will be able to include up to a 40 second-long Voice Chat clip in their report — 20 seconds of the main conversation with the other player, plus an additional 10 seconds before and after the conversation selection. Only the most recent five minutes of a Voice Chat will be available for a player to use for this reporting function.

These reports can be submitted directly through the PS5 console, and will be sent to our Consumer Experience team for moderation, who will then listen to the recording and take action, if needed. Some submitted reports won’t be valid, and our team will take this as an opportunity to provide guidance and education.

There won’t be an option to opt-out of this Voice Chat recording function because we want all users to feel safe when playing with others online, not just those who choose to enable it.

Thanks for reading, and I’m hoping this gives you a better idea about our goals for this new function. We appreciate your support, and want you to know that our team will always work to create a positive experience on PlayStation so you can focus on playing great games and having fun with your friends.

As always, feel free to share your in the PS5 Forum or directly below this topic.

It seems fine then, no need to be paranoid if they are listening to you. However if you are planning to buy the digital edition, unless it gets jailbreaked, your console might become a useless brick.

Your conversation still could be taken out of context and you might get wrongfully banned. It's too risky to give your power away like that, at least if your disc console gets banned, you will still be able to play disc games with the latest updates, so that's a no brainer.

sure feel safer now, especially since whaman explained that, same as that blizzard feminazi and many many others who spit hate to men, ubinazi even had to apologize why there is not enough whamen in games and as main character in assassins creed, maybe cos they never fight, only spread legs.

same as whamen in gaming none in 200 best places, and female team lost 35:0 so even sponsors run from that joke. do not forget that deer abomination from twitch talking about voice chat. and now we have it.

good i will not buy that leftist censored crap called ps5, ps4pro was lost money for console of remakes from ps3, and do not forget sony false dmca and last of lgbt 2 that failed due some freaks in game
