Sony PlayStation 5 has two main tabs on the homescreen, one for games and the other for media, which is where all streaming services will be located
Sony PlayStation 5 will come with support for popular streaming apps at launch, the company has announced through a blog post. These streaming apps include Apple TV, Netflix, Disney+, and more. The PlayStation 5 will not just be a gaming console, but an entertainment hub as well and just like the PlayStation 4 and its support for streaming apps, the next-gen console will provide a similar experience, albeit, in a more streamlined manner. Further, the Media Remote will allow users to navigate and control the entertainment experience.
Apps like Twitch and YouTube will have deeper integration with the PS5. Users will be able to watch or stream their gameplay on Twitch, as well as live chat with fellow gamers through several communities on Twitch, right from the console. With YouTube, users can broadcast and share their gameplay moments directly to their YouTube channel.
These streaming services will be available in the dedicated media section on the console’s homepage. As seen in the UI walkthrough shared recently, there are two major tabs on the homepage, one for games and the other for media, allowing players to quickly switch between the two.
