Yes … that means you no longer need a PS5 to update your DualSense Controller. You can do it on Windows!
Taken from Engadget … You’ve long been able to use a DualSense controller with your PC, but it wasn’t quite so appealing when you couldn’t update the firmware without access to a PlayStation 5. Thankfully, that’s no longer necessary. Sony has released a firmware update tool for Windows that lets you upgrade the DualSense through a USB connection on your PC — no console required. You won’t miss out on bug fixes or refinements just because you prefer computer gaming.
The software requires Windows 10 or 11. You’ll need to update multiple controllers one at a time.
PC players can now update their DualSense wireless controller with the latest firmware from Windows 11 and select Windows 10 devices, without connecting to a PS5. Details: https://t.co/PF5E3VnoXM pic.twitter.com/PF2ASo8Fw6

The tool will be helpful for PC-only gamers who want the same controller functionality as their PS5 counterparts, of course. At the same time, it might also useful for Remote Play. You can keep a DualSense by your computer knowing that you won’t have to visit the living room (and partly defeat the purpose of Remote Play) just to bring the gamepad up to date.
