The PS5 Scene recently saw the first PlayStation 5 PKGs surface, a PS5 Game Downloads library, the PlayStation 5 UI / UX, PS5 Streaming Apps, several PS5 Unboxing Videos and in PS5 News today Sony officially introduced the new PlayStation App that is redesigned to enhance gaming experiences on PlayStation 5. 📱

The updated PS App now includes a new UI layout, integrated messages feature, support for voice chat and more as outlined below from Sony Platform Planning & Management SVP Hideaki Nishino to quote:

Today we’re introducing new ways to amplify your connections with friends and the games you love to play even when you’re away from your console. We’re pleased to unveil the updated PlayStation App, reimagined to enhance your gaming experiences on both PS4 and PS5.

Starting later today, the PS App will begin to roll out globally through updates on iOS (12.2 or later) and Android (6.0 or later) mobile devices. The PS App introduces fresh features such as voice chat, native PS Store integration, and a smoother experience delivered in an all-new design.

Here's a list of the key features for PS App:
  • Updated user interface – The first thing you’ll notice is the sleek new user interface of the redesigned PS App. The new home screen lets you quickly see what your friends are playing and access details about your recently played games, including your Trophy List.

  • Messages integration – For a unified experience, the PS Messages app feature will now be integrated in the updated PS App so you can seamlessly message your friends all in one place. As part of this integration, PS Messages will no longer be available as a standalone app. Your existing messages and threads in PS Messages will be carried over to the updated PS App.

  • Voice Chat and Party Groups – You can now create party groups from PS App, and voice chat with up to 15 other friends though your mobile phone. Also, a note to fans: the PlayStation team is looking into your feedback around the Parties changes introduced in the PS4 system software update 8.00. There are no updates to share today, but thanks for speaking up about your concerns – we’re listening and evaluating.

  • Natively integrated PlayStation Store and remote downloads – The new native PS Store experience enables fast and smooth shopping and browsing, with the ability to remotely download games and add-ons directly to your PS4 and PS5.

  • New features for PS5 – When PS5 arrives, you’ll be able to remotely launch games, manage storage on your console if you run out of space while downloading a game, and quickly sign in to PS5 straight from the PS App.

  • All the latest PlayStation news – The Explore tab surfaces Official News from game developers and PS Blog content to help you stay up to date with the world of PlayStation.
If you don’t have the PS App yet, you'll need an account for PlayStation Network to access the updated app. If you don’t have an account yet, please visit this link and follow the steps to sign up.

As much as I have a jailbroken console, I just wish it was possible to buy DLC for my PS4 physical DVD library from the PS Store, download it using the app and install it using a USB or external hard drive instead of the console. More like we do for game update packages and firmware installation pup files.
