Best Friends

Want to know how to manage your friend requests? Not a problem.

It's slightly different on PS5 compared to the previous PS5 console.

Don't worry though, we've got you sorted with this quick help guide, but keep reading for more handy tips and tricks to get the most out of your PS5.

How to accept a friend request on PS5?

When you receive a friend request you'll typically see a notification in the top right corner of your screen.

If you press the PlayStation logo button on your DualSense controller at the same time you can accept or decline the request right away.

However, if you missed this notification and you want to see your pending and received friend requests, all you got to do is follow the steps below.

1 - Go to your PS5 control centre, which you access from pressing the PlayStation logo on your DualSense controller.

2 - From the PS5 control centre menu, scroll right until you find the 'Game Base' option. It will have a logo that shows a small outline of a person. Select 'Game Base'.

3 - Press the options button on your DualSense controller - It's the button next to the triangle button, with 3 horizontal lines showing above it - and select 'Go To Game Base'.

4 - Next select 'Friend Requests'.

5 - Select the player you want to become friends with. The Player's Profile should then appear.

6 - Select 'Add Friend' to send the player a friend request.

7 - To become 'close friends' with a player, select the checkbox for 'Share Your Real Name'.

8 - An invitation to become friends is sent to the player. When your friend request is accepted, that player is added to your friend's list.
