How to turn off trophy videos on PS5

We all love celebrating our accomplishments, especially when it comes to earning trophies across the PlayStation ecosystem. With the release of the PS5, trophies are just as prevalent as ever, but the standard setting takes it a little too far.

By default, the PS5 records a 14-second video of the last trophy you earned, cluttering up your precious hard drive space, as well as your Media Gallery. It’s not too difficult to turn this setting off, and in this handy guide, we’ll show you how.

How to turn off trophy videos on PS5

The easiest way to alter the trophy video settings is to visit your profile’s trophy page. To do so, click on your profile from the PS5’s main menu. You should see your profile image at the top right portion of the screen. After you click on it, a sub-menu will appear with a few options. Halfway down, you’ll see Trophies, so click that.

This will then bring you to your trophies across PS5, PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games. From this menu, press the Options button on your DualSense.

A menu will appear with the Share Settings option. Select that.

Once you do, you’ll be taken to another menu with a few more options. You can alter whether or not the PS5 saves trophy screenshots from here, as well as change the trophy video settings. If you select Save Trophy Videos, this will toggle a slider on and off.

If you have trophy videos enabled, you can also alter the length of each video — either 15 seconds or 30 seconds.

The other way to turn off trophy videos is to visit the system Settings by clicking on the gear icon from the PS5 home screen. Then, scroll all the way down to Captures and Broadcasts.

At this point, you’ll see a list of options, so select the last one on the bottom, Trophies. You’ll then see a similar menu to the one mentioned above, featuring an option to disable Save Trophy videos by toggling a slider.

Deleting saved trophy videos

You’ll also need to know how to delete those pesky saved trophy videos that were on by default. To do so, head to the Media Gallery from the PS5’s main menu and scroll over to Trophies.

Navigate over to the video you want to delete and press the Options button on your DualSense.

Then, scroll down and pick the Select Multiple Items option.

From here, you’ll be able to pick all of the videos you want to delete at once. After you’ve made your selections, navigate to the right and press Delete to wipe them out for good. This will free up some precious hard drive space and hopefully allow you to download more games onto your new PS5.

How to use remote play on PS5

Wondering how to use remote play on PS5? Getting set up is simple as long as you have a compatible device and controller. Here's how to start.

Echo Frames second-gen now available for pre-order while Echo Loop is discontinued

Last year, Amazon launched its first Day 1 Editions products with the Echo Frames, an Alexa powered pair of smart glasses, and the Echo Loop, a smart ring with Alexa built-in. Day 1 Edition products are akin to a public beta test, where Amazon launches a device, in order to get customer feedback and determine if it’s worth mass-producing.Since last year, Amazon has learned a lot about what customers like and dislike about the products, and has come to two conclusions. The Echo Frames will continue on, but the Echo Loop will be discontinued.What that means for consumers is, the Echo Frames are now available for pre-order and will begin shipping on December 10, 2020, just in time for the holidays. While the Echo Loop will cease production and sales, however, users of the Echo Loop will continue to receive updates and support.In case you’re in need of a refresher, the Echo Frames are a pair of prescription-ready smart glasses featuring a microphone, speaker, and built-in support for Alexa. The glasses were designed to look like normal everyday eyewear while using open-ear audio technology to focus sound toward your ears.This gives you the power of Alexa while on the go, without looking too conspicuous like with the Google Glass smart glasses. While using the Echo Frames, you’ll have the ability to make calls, play music, control your smart home, hear notifications, and more with the power of Alexa.During the past year, Amazon learned a lot from users and has made some improvements to the Echo Frames before launching the second-gen version. The all-new Echo Frames now sport improved battery life, and provides you with up to 40 percent more battery life during continuous playback when compared to the previous generation.There have also been improvements to the VIP Filter, which allows you to set what apps and contacts you’ll hear notifications from. Now, this feature has been extended to support calendars and group messaging.Lastly, you can now extend your battery life even further by using Auto Off, which automatically powers down the Echo Frames when being placed upside down for three seconds.The second-gen Echo Frames are now available for pre-order for $249.99 and come in a range of colors, including Modern Tortoise, Horizon Blue, and Classic Black.

Don’t worry though, the SIM card is 100 percent free. The Edge sports a 6.7-inch immersive display that wraps around the, well edges. Not only does it looks stunning, but it also has a 90Hz refresh rate that makes it feel buttery smooth. Pair that with the triple camera setup on the back and 5G connectivity, and you’ve got quite the package.The Motorola One 5G UW is another option for all of you looking to jump onto the 5G bandwagon. This handset is packed with cameras, with four on the back and two on the front, making it perfect for the shutterbugs out there. Even better, you can grab it from Verizon for as little as $5 a month by activating a new line on the Premium Unlimited plan.The hits keep coming with the unlocked Moto G Stylus receiving a $100 discount. Meaning you can pick it up on Amazon for a total of $200 and use it on any network. This is a perfect phone for all of you looking for an integrated stylus, but find the Samsung Galaxy Note series to be too pricey.Last but not least, the Mote E is available from Walmart for $39.88 while supplies last. While it might not be as feature-rich as Motorola’s other offerings, the Moto E excels in offering a value option that won’t break the bank.
