A local Disney Plus PS5 app is on the horizon almost two years after the console’s launch. Reddit consumer the_andshrew 2 noticed a PSN database entry for a beta model of the app, apparently code named “Vader.” It comes with the picture above however no additional info is out there. That mentioned, now that it’s appeared within the again finish, it shouldn’t be lengthy earlier than PS5 customers can ditch the PS4 app that they’ve been utilizing by way of backwards compatibility, compromising streaming high quality.
When to count on the native Disney Plus PS5 app
As beforehand talked about, PSN again finish database entries don’t all the time reveal launch dates, and it seems just like the app model that the Redditor discovered was a beta model. This doesn’t essentially imply that it’ll be some time earlier than we get the native Disney Plus PS5 app, although. Our guess is that it’ll be out throughout the subsequent week or two however we’ll replace our readers after we hear one thing extra official. For now, relaxation assured that you simply received’t be caught watching your Disney reveals with out assist for 4K playback, which is at the moment the case as a result of PS5 customers are caught utilizing the PS4 app by way of backwards compatibility.
Some customers have identified that video playback high quality isn’t the one factor that suffers once they watch Disney Plus on PS5 with no native app. Apparently, a number of the newer reveals on the service endure from bizarre crackling sound, making them not possible to observe on the PS5.
It’s unclear why it took so lengthy for Sony and Disney to roll out a local app, which is already out there on Xbox Collection X. Higher late than by no means, I assume.
