Browse the Internet on PS5

In the Settings menu of the Sony PS5, there is a secret web browser. The browser’s aim is to display Sony PS5 user manuals and tutorials. The browser, on the other hand, can play movies and access third-party websites.

Custom URLs, on the other hand, cannot be entered directly into the browser. So there’s a way to get around this and go to the Google search menu. This will allow you to browse any website and play videos as well.

1. To get to it, go to the upper right corner and click the gear symbol.

Limitations of the Web Browser

I tried watching videos on MetaCafe, BBC, and Vimeo, but none of them worked. The videos are good, but you can’t watch them in fullscreen mode. Furthermore, because the browser uses an outdated web engine, certain modern websites aren’t rendered or loaded properly.

You can’t save bookmarks or open URLs directly in the web browser. As a result, you’ll have to go through the above steps every time you wish to watch movies or use Google on your PS5.
