Would also like to remind the reader about the concern about the recent notification that even the Senior Director of SIE Content Communications addressed since the update went live, it concerns Party Safety and the Conversations in the Party’s voice chat may be recorded. Here is what the Senior Director mentions:

“Following this update, users are seeing a notification about Party Safety and that voice chats in parties may be recorded. 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. 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.

Sid Shuman, Senior Director of SIE Content Communications
