PS5 fans discover genius hack to fix one of the console’s most annoying features

GAMERS have found a clever way to stop that dreaded startup noise that blasts out when you switch on the PS5.

The beep is not ideal if you’re trying not to wake up the entire house as you play something late at night.

It’s been a bit of a long-running joke among fans of the console.

“Wives can hear that from across the ocean,” one user tweeted.

“Why the PS5 beep louder than a Jamaican air horn tho,” another said.

“Bro we can take our PS5 to outer space and they’ll still hear the beep!” a third added.

But it’s no longer a problem thanks to a clever workaround.

According to TechRadar, you just need the PS Remote Play app to get around the annoying sound.

The app is available for free on iPhone and Android.

Once you have it installed and linked to your PS5 console, you need to wake it up using your smartphone’s 4G or 5G data.

WiFi will have to be disabled for it to work.

And the PS5 needs to be in rest mode.

So just go into the app, wake up the console and away you go.

No sound whatsoever.

It is a bit of a fiddly process to go through but for now this is the only known way you can avoid the startup beep.

Sony has not built any way to switch it off entirely.

Or even a way to lower the sound’s volume.
