PS4 update 5.50 includes Play Time Management and PS Now background music

PS4 Update 5.50 Officially Revealed With Full List Of Features Shannon Grixti

A PS Plus tab will also be added, showing what games are in your library via PlayStation Plus.

Most PS4 system updates usually consist of "stability updates".

Here's what Sony had to say about the redesigned headset on the PlayStation Blog, "The headset maintains everything you loved, while featuring a new sleek design with refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions".

The holiday quarter was pretty big for the PlayStation 4: Sony affirms that strong hardware and software sales drove up its Games and Network Services segment sales by 16% year-over-year, and that it shipped 9 million PS4s during the season, or more than both of its previous quarterly shipments combined.

For those wanting to limit how much a PS4 is used, the new Play Time Management feature has been introduced, which is primarily intended for use with kids.

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

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. Notifications on PS4 will be sent to the child during gameplay so that he or she knows when they should save and quit.

This includes the ability to import images via USB and then modify pictures to get the flawless look. If PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to the games until users have re-subscribed.

The final coup-de-grace for messy libraries: you can finally hide apps.

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.

Several new quick-menu enhancements will be added, including accessing specific friends from a custom list as well as additional audio controls when using Spotify or the USB music player.

Listening to music on the PS4 will now feature Quick Menu shortcuts. On the Media Player or USB Music Player, the triangle button works as a shortcut for play or pause and the square button can be used to control the volume.

With Background Music on PS Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now. 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. This gives PS4 Pro owners who do not have a 4K TV another benefit beyond Boost Mode.

Let us know which features you're most excited about, and remember it's not too late to join the beta.
