Sony has added a new icon to the PS4’s friends list, indicating which console your friends are currently playing on.
Although it is easy to overlook at first, you will notice it along with the name of the game they are playing. Here you can look (thanks, Push Square):
Of course right now everyone has the same icon as we are still patiently waiting for ours to come PS5 consoles, but after November 12 or 19 – depending on where you are in the world – friends who were lucky enough to secure a PS5 will probably have another icon that matches the PS5’s bold new design.
It is also assumed that PS Vita players will also get a special icon.
It should not have a massive impact on your experience in any way – friends should be able to participate in voice chats and lobbies, whether they are on Sony’s current or next generation systems – but it’s nonetheless a practical visual reminder.
