Sony has unveiled the next major PlayStation 5 software update, rolling out to all owners.

The second major update to Sony's latest console, this patch is bringing a number of quality of life updates.

Exciting new features include M.2 SSD compatibility, 3D audio and mobile functions.

The hardware has supported an M.2 from launch with a dedicated slot, however until now it wasn't functional.

Now, if you have a compatible M.2 SSD you can install it and expand your console's storage.

Games can be played directly from SSD storage.

The September System Update also includes broad UX improvements.

New social features include a new kind of accolade, 'Leader', which will appear on player profiles.

Another fancy new feature is 3D Audio support for TVs with built-in speakers.

The built-in microphone in the DualSense controller can be used to measure room acoustics when setting up 3D Audio.

This PlayStation 5 System Update is rolling out as we speak.
