Find out how to check notifications and how to mute or delete notifications on your PlayStation®5 console.
Notifications help you stay informed—know when you receive an invitation or a friend request, a game you purchased is ready to play, an add-on goes on sale, and more.
When a pop-up with a PS button icon appears on screen, you can press the PS button to expand the notification so you can check it. Notifications often provide extra information and actions you can take on the spot.
To mute all notifications temporarily, go to the control centre and select Notifications, and then turn on Do Not Disturb.
Pop-ups for notifications don't appear on-screen until you log out of or restart your PS5 console, or until you turn off Do Not Disturb.
To configure notification settings, go to the home screen and select Settings > Notifications:
Allow Pop-Up Notifications
Turn on to see pop-ups for notifications on screen.
Turn on to see a preview of notifications you receive.
Turn on to hear a sound when you receive a notification.
Change how long you see a pop-up before it disappears.
Select which pop-ups you want to see, and when you want to see them. For each notification type below, choose to have pop-ups turn off automatically while you're playing games, watching videos, during broadcasts, or any combination of the three:
