Step 1: Say “PlayStation”, the microphone icon and the operations that can be performed next are displayed. The microphone icon lights up in blue during voice recognition.

Step 2: Choose the operation you want to perform from the items that are displayed, and then say it.

  • If you don’t say an operation within 10 seconds or if you operate the system with the controller, the voice recognition feature is disabled.
  • On the home screen, you can enable and disable the voice recognition feature with the L2 button on the controller.
  • Even if you are playing a game, you can say “PlayStation” and then say one of the following commands to perform operations: Home Screen, Take Screenshot And Log In.

To use the voice recognition feature, you must set a checkmark in (Settings) > [System] > [Operate PS4 with Voice].

If a headset and a PlayStation®Camera are both connected to the system, only the headset’s microphone is enabled.

Depending on the system language, English might be the only language available for voice input.
