Bullying and inappropriate comments in online gaming has been a constant concern over multiple platforms, and voice chat has been a difficult area to moderate.

However, with the PlayStation 5 on the horizon, Sony has introduced a feature that will allow players to keep a recording of their online chats, and submit them for moderation.

The new feature was slipped into the latest Sony update, and initially had fans concerned that Sony would be recording voice chats.

However, the company has now clarified the matter with a statement on the official PlayStation blog.

"Users are seeing a notification about Party Safety and that voice chats in parties may be recorded," said the statement.

"Voice chat recording for moderation is a feature that will be available on PS5 when it launches, and will enable users to record their voice chats on PS5 and submit them for moderation review.

"The pop up you're seeing on PS4 right now is to let you know that when you participate in a chat with a PS5 user (post-launch), they may submit those recordings from their PS5 console to SIE."
