  • What To Expect From The PS4 5.50 Update

We certainly hope it's soon, though, as a lot of the changes coming with the PS4 5.50 update seem as if they will change the system for the better.

Play Time Management is a new feature that allows guardians and family members to manage PS4 playtime for their child. This allows you to check out how many hours your child is playing games, and you can limit the amount of time that are playing. The kid will get notifications, so they know how long they have to save their game before playtime is over.

By popular demand, you can now import your own images via USB stick to use as custom wallpapers on PS4. A new USB storage device option has been added to the Themes area of the Settings menu.

While custom wallpapers were previously implemented to some extent, the PS4 5.50 update allows users to import any issue they'd like to apply as the PS4 background. To set your logo and background, head over to Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile.

On the user interface front, two new tabs are added to Library to make it easier to see which apps you've installed and bought. The PS4 section lists all of the apps and games now installed on the console, while the tab with your avatar and name shows what has been purchased with your PSN account. This will make it even more easier for you to find the games and apps that you have already downloaded.




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. Below that will be a section with your PlayStation Network ID, which will show all the PlayStation Store items you own. You can hide content like betas, trials, and demos.

The Friends tab in the Quick Menu now lets you quickly access specific friends, and it'll also show which of them are online. If your PS Plus membership has expired, a lock icon will appear next to the game showing that you'll be unable to play until you've re-subscribed to PS Plus.

Background music may not always be available, however, you will be able to listen to your own music while streaming a game on PS Now. When listening to Spotify on PlayStation Music, the Square buttons act as the shortcut for volume control. You can also now permanently remove old notifications from the PS4 as well. From the Notifications menu just hit Triangle or the Options button to open the appropriate dialog.

Other details on what may be coming with the PS4 supersampling update will be forthcoming, but at least those of us with lower quality TVs may see a bit of a graphics bump in our favorite games.

PS4 Pro owners will receive a "supersampling mode" which will enable those with HDTVs (1080p or less) to experience enhanced visuals in PS4 games.
