Here's What's Coming in PS4 System Software 5.50 Update

In the meanwhile, details on what the update will include have been revealed. The new system software will introduce supersampling for Ps4 Pro, play time management, library UI improvements and more.

One of the key features included is Play Time Management which allows users to set limits on when and for how long an individual child can play for. Like the previous feature, this one is all about giving players the choice to truly make things their own. Notifications on PS4 will be sent to the child during gameplay so that he or she knows when they should save and quit.

The firm writes: "The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC", Sony says. This allows accounts listed as family managers to manage playtime for child accounts. To access this feature, go to Settings Family Management on your PS4.

Two new tabs are being added to Library to make it easier for you to see which apps you've installed and purchased. This means you can hide all those betas, trials, and demos that you didn't like.

"The "This PS4" tab lists all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system, and the tab with your name/avatar lists all the apps that you purchased with your PSN ID", Sony continues. A new PS Plus tab will show all the games you've received for free as a member. There's also a section where you can see which games you only "own" through PlayStation Plus. They can do so via the pulldown menu under the Friends tab in Quick Menu.

The Friends tab in the Quick Menu now lets you quickly access specific friends, and it'll also show which of them are online. It will also display who is now online.
