Here's what's coming with PS4's big 5.50 update”

The PS Plus tab also gives you a clear indication of the PlayStation Plus games you own, complete with a new lock icon that appears when you no longer subscribe.

"If needed, the family manager/guardians can apply playtime restrictions to make sure that the child is only playing for a set amount of time or within set playable hours", Mary Yee, vice president of PS marketing, wrote in a blog post. The "This PS4" tab will list all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system.

Stay tuned for further details about more features and improvements are coming with system software update 5.50.

There's no word on when update 5.50 will launch for the general public, but we'll hopefully hear some feedback from those accepted into the beta.

Sony will also be using Update 5.50 to add some quick menu enhancements to the PS4 related to finding friends more easily in a "Friends" tab, and shortcuts for those using the system to play music.

Go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.

Outside of parental controls, update 5.5 will allow users to import images from a USB stick to use as a custom wallpaper for a more personal look.

'Notifications on PS4 will be sent to the child during gameplay so that he or she knows when they should save and quit. Once imported, you can even zoom, crop and preview them in-situ to help get the flawless look on your dashboard.

Other features in this patch include new Quick Menu improvements (shortcut buttons for volume and Pause/Play when listening to music, faster access to individual friends) and customization options for team pages in Tournaments.

"This feature also makes it easy to search and find games you've already purchased but have not yet installed". Meanwhile, those of you who regularly game on PS Now can listen to your favourite songs while streaming content, and you can now organise your notifications by deleting unwanted messages.

Following on from this, there's a new function that lets you hide certain apps under the purchased tab in the Library.

Let us know which features you're most excited about, and remember it's not too late to join the beta. Music controls for Spotify, the media player and USB music player apps are coming to the quick menu. You'll also be able to delete old notifications to help clean up your list. The new firmware will introduce several changes and conveniences in the user interface plus a supersampling mode for PlayStation 4 Pro that accommodates those who don't have a TV supporting 4K resolution.

Previously, we had gotten word of a PS4 Pro supersampling feature that will allow users without a 4K TV to see their games rendered at a higher resolution that is then downscaled to the resolution of their TV's display.
