Find out how to set up automatic updates for games and system software on PS5 and PS4 consoles.
Game updates (patches) and system software updates are automatically downloaded and installed.
Games purchased from PlayStation™Store can be downloaded remotely.
Game saves are automatically saved to PlayStation Network so you can pick up where you left off on another PlayStation system. Feature available for PlayStation®Plus subscribers only.
Trophies are automatically synced to PlayStation™Network.
To allow automatic updates, set your PlayStation console to stay connected to the internet when in rest mode, enable automatic downloads and leave your system in rest mode when not in use.
Turning on Install Update Files Automatically lets your console install updates automatically while in rest mode, so your console is up to date and ready to go the next time you play.
Once you have enabled automatic updates, remote downloads are available when purchasing content through PlayStation Store online or on mobile.
