Whenever you turn on your PlayStation 5, the first thing your console will do is greet you with a beep. The same thing also happens when you turn the console off or put it in stand-by mode. This has annoyed players around the world. However, a recent beta patch suggests that this is coming to an end soon.

The dreaded beep is finally customizable. This gives you the chance to turn it off entirely! To do this, all you have to do is to go to your settings, pick the 'System' option and to find 'Beep Sound'. To mute the beep sound for good, pick the 'Mute Beep Sound' option.

If you want to keep it, you can adjust its volume too. All you have to do is to pick the 'Volume' option instead.
