PS5 Can Record Voice Chats and Report Them to Moderators

PlayStation 5 users will be able to record voice chats and send them to moderators. The news was revealed alongside the latest system software update for the PlayStation 4, version 8.00.

PS4 users have been reporting seeing a notification in party chats where they are told that “voice chats may be recorded for moderation.”

According to the PlayStation Blog, this is a pre-emptive measure for the upcoming feature, which will launch alongside the PS5.

“Voice chat recording for moderation is a feature that will be available on PS5 when it launches, and will enable users to record their voice chats on PS5 and submit them for moderation review,” explained Sid Shuman, Senior Director at SIE Content Communications.

“The pop up you’re seeing on PS4 right now is to let you know that when you participate in a chat with a PS5 user (post-launch), they may submit those recordings from their PS5 console to SIE,” he added.

It’s not clear just yet what the ramifications of this new system will be: will it be a means for Sony to find and ban users who break the code of conduct in voice chats, as reported by other players?

The rest of the Version 8.00 update offers small tweaks to the PS4 UI, likely to bring it in line with features coming to the next-generation console and to mitigate cross-play issues.

Version 8.00 includes new avatars, a means to mute all microphones from the quick menu and enhanced 2-step verification. It also removes the ability to create or access events.
