A new PlayStation update adds a slew of new features and one of them is the ability to use a second controller to assist another controller. It’s a valuable update that is set to improve the accessibility capabilities of the PS5. Here’s how to enable it.
The PS5 already offers a suite of accessibility features. With a new update, alongside adding Dolby Atmos support and enhancing voice commands on the console, PlayStation brings the ability for a second controller to be used alongside a first controller. This addition could be used to help one person who may benefit from the two controllers being used as one or for a second person to aid the first. This is how you enable the new accessibility tool.
