How to Turn Off Home Screen Music on PS5


When navigating the PlayStation 5 home screen you’ll always hear some sort of music, whether it’s the default system beat, or the default track that plays for games when you move past them. While this is cool at first, it can get old fast. If you just want to navigate your PS5’s menu in peace without having to hear the same music constantly, you can turn the home screen music off. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.
