PS4 System Software 5.50 Beta Key Features Confirmed

Image Sony

Today, we're getting a better idea of what will be added, as Sony has detailed some of the incoming features while at the same time launching PS4 5.50's beta on a large scale. Included in the newest PS4 Update 5.50 we'll see play time management, quick menu enhancements, importing custom wallpapers via USB and more. This feature will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on PSN.

The family manager/guardian can log into the account and set the playable hours.

Notifications will be sent to children during gameplay so that they know when they should save and quit. You can import images from a USB device, and you'll even be able to make adjustments like crop, zoom and so on to fit the dashboard.

Download them onto your PC (right-click and save), or click on download from our gallery, and place them directly onto your USB stick. With the 5.5 update, you can insert a flash drive that has the image you want, and set it as your background from the Themes tab in Settings. Sony has also added a new PlayStation Plus tab, showing you which games you own via the PlayStation Plus monthly free games promotion. When selected, the former will list all the applications installed on the overall system, while the latter will list the applications you purchased on your personal PSN ID. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock shows up next to your game so you know which games you can play if you re-subscribe. There's also a section where you can see which games you only "own" through PlayStation Plus.




Hiding apps: This convenience allows the user to disappear certain apps they won't be using again, reducing menu clutter; think betas, trials or other demos. Music controls for Spotify, the media player and USB music player apps are all coming to the main menu. You can also now manually delete notifications.

With Background Music on PS Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now.

There are many PS4 themes and custom wallpapers online, including our own gallery of hundreds of video game-related images. Now, the multinational video game company has made a decision to officially reveal the contents of the next update, which is set to introduce several changes and refinements in the console's user interface, as well as a supersampling mode for the PlayStation 4 Pro that assists those who don't have a TV that supports 4K resolution. "Because PS4 Pro's added power and modes benefit different games in different ways, please note that certain games' image clarity may not improve with this new feature". You can still sign up here for a chance to participate.
