PS5 Media Remote manual leak

The Media Remote’s manual has reportedly leaked, according to reports from TrustedReviews. The manual details the purpose of the four previously unmarked buttons towards the bottom of the remote, which are to be used for Spotify, Netflix, YouTube and Disney+.

PS5 Media Remote specs

Uh, yes? We don’t know much about the specs of the PS5 Media Remote. We can see from the design though that some things have changed since the PS4 iteration.

For example, there don’t appear to be any face buttons (triangle circle and co) on the controller, which is an interesting detail.

It’s likely the battery life will be pretty good, and presumably, it’ll be rechargeable too.


PS5 Media Remote features

Aside from things like being wireless and sharing the same retro-futuristic look of the console and DualSense controller, we know few additional things about the features.


Owners of the remote will be able to turn on their PS5 with the remote, as well as navigate through the PlayStation 5’s menus.

There are all the buttons you’d expect from a Media Remote, but there are also currently four unmarked buttons at the bottom which, if the leaked manual is real, will be used for streaming and video services.

It also features a built-in microphone to allow for voice commands, which is nice.
