How to access the PS5 web browser

If you’ve ever lamented the lack of a dedicated browser on PS5, fear not. Sony’s flagship console does actually have an in-built browser that can be used to surf the web, albeit one that’s fairly limited and can only be accessed in a certain way.

While there’s some minor hoops to jump through to make use of the PS5 web browser, we’ll show you how to access this ‘hidden’ browser, and the roundabout way in which you can browse the internet while using it.

Tools and Requirements

1. A Sony PlayStation 5 console
2. Access to the internet
3. A Twitter account

Steps

  • Navigate to the PS5 settings menu, accessed via the cog wheel icon at the top right of the PS5 dashboard.

  • Select Users and Accounts, followed by the ‘Link with other services’ option within the Users and Accounts submenu. You’ll then be greeted by a selection of social media apps that the PS5 supports linking to. Select Twitter to continue.

  • The PS5 browser window will pop up, but we don’t actually want to link our Twitter account here, as doing so will close the PS5 web browser upon successfully linking, taking us straight back to the Settings menu. Instead, we want to click the option to ‘Sign up for Twitter’ found at the top right of the window, followed by ‘Log in’ on the following page. Next, enter your sign-in credentials, and instead of being booted back to the PS5 settings menu, you’ll have access to your Twitter feed.
