Taking screenshots while you play your favorite games on the Sony PS4 or PS5 is completely doable and it’s pretty easy and straightforward. However, sharing those screenshots might be a bit tricky, but Sony is hoping to remedy that with an update to its PlayStation app.
How this works is pretty much the same as how you would normally sync photos in the cloud. Basically, as long as you’re signed into the same account on the app as your console, whenever you take a screenshot or a video, it will sync in the cloud so after a few minutes, it should show up in the app.
We’re gradually rolling out the ability to share your PS5 game captures through PS App in more regions! Americas are first up, with more countries next month. Details: https://t.co/yskER3hn8t pic.twitter.com/8sfrm6PZZj

From there, you can open the photo or video and then share it with your friends or on your social media channels. According to Sony, it will support both photos and video, but the videos need to be non-4K and be under three minutes long. These photos and videos will stay in the PlayStation app for up to 14 days where you’ll be able to save it onto your device if you want to keep it for longer.
Sony notes that the changes are now being pushed out for users living in the Americas region, but should eventually be made available to all users. Also, users not need to have a PS Plus subscription in order to take advantage of this.
