Today Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital released a new update for Gran Turismo 7, numbered 1.07.
The update introduced a “Broadcast Mode” in the sound volume settings that basically opts out of all the licensed music tracks that could cause a copyright strike or claim when you’re livestreaming the game or publishing footage.
On top of that, there are several fixes to multiple modes within the game. Reportedly, the credits prizes for some events have also been changed, albeit the patch notes make no mention of that.
You can read the full patch notes below.

You can also take a look at the editions available to plan your pre-order, a gameplay video focusing on the return of the Deep Forest Raceway track, another showing Daytona, the new Porsche Vision Gran Turismo, videos dedicated to the music, and another trailer from a few weeks ago.
