The PS5 is finally here, and even though it doesn't support Bluetooth audio, there are still plenty of devices you can connect to your new console — including controllers, media remotes, and more. Sony may have updated the menu system on the PS5, but connecting Bluetooth peripherals is just as easy as it was on the PS4.

  4. Under Accessories Found, you should see any available devices that are set to Pairing Mode. Simply select one and follow the prompts for your particular type of device.

That's all there is to it! Setting up a Bluetooth device on the PS5 is just as easy as pairing to your phone or laptop. You can connect a wireless keyboard for an easier time typing messages to your friends, or an extra DualSense controller for getting local friends in on the action.

It's worth noting that most of Sony's first-party accessories for the PS5 don't use Bluetooth, instead opting for wired connections or, in the case of the PULSE 3D headset, a USB adapter.

Get in on the action

The PlayStation 5 is nearly impossible to find in stock right now, but that doesn't mean all hope is lost if you missed out on the pre-order window. All it takes is a little patience while retailers re-up their supply, and you'll be swinging through New York City as Miles Morales before you know it.

Next-gen gaming

The ultimate next-gen gaming experience is here.

You can buy a PS5 right now, and it's set to be Sony's most powerful console with a super fast SSD, 3.5GHz CPU, and 10.28 TFLOP GPU. If you're looking to buy a PS5 for your children, you might want to set up parental controls so they don't play mature games.

No Blu-ray

For those who don't need physical copies of their games.

The PS5 Digital Edition is perfect for PS5 fans who don't plan on collecting physical game copies. It's completely identical to the standard PS5, save for the lack of a Blu-ray slot, meaning you can save some money without compromising on performance.
