Sony’s next-generation gaming console, the PS5, is now available in some countries, and along with it is its companion, the DualSense Controller. While Playstation released an FAQ page for the new controller, some fans discover interesting features. Here are some of the exciting DualSense Controller features that some users are not aware of.

DualSense Can Shut Off All Audio

Gamerant reports that the PS5 DualSense Controller can conveniently and quickly shut off all audio. This is a handy feature, especially for players who want to speak to someone or need to listen to other things outside gaming. To mute all audio, users can hold down the microphone mute button.

This button is just below the PlayStation button. It emanates an orange light if the process is executed correctly. The audio immediately returns with another click on the mic mute button. The new audio toggle feature is a convenient addition to the PS5 because of the latest immersive 3D audio technology.

Unlike the PlayStation 5, whose release will be staggered in different countries from Thursday, the Xbox Series X hit the shelves worldwide

DualSense Can Turn Off Adaptive Triggers

One of the DualSense Controller’s major features is adaptive triggers, making the gaming experience more immersive. While it is an exciting addition, it is not a design that everyone loves. While many users find the feature a brilliant concept, some players find it annoying.

Sony announced that this feature could be toggled off easily. For those who do not want to use the DualSense Controller’s adaptive triggers, they can just turn off the feature. In fact, the adaptive triggers’ resistance levels could be adjusted to match the player’s style and need. It is perfect for players who do not want to turn off the triggers totally.

Meanwhile, the PS5 is now available in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. It's scheduled to launch in the rest of the world on Nov. 19. The PS5 Digital Edition retails at $399, while the PS5 Standard Edition costs $499. The PS5 DualSense controller retails at $69.99, a $10 increase from the regular price of the DualShock 4.
