What's New in PS4 Update 5.50, All the Changes

PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset Redesign is Coming to Shelves Soon

The beta for PS4 software update 5.50 has begun, and it's a preview of the (extremely) long-awaited features coming for all of us once testing concludes.

Play Time Management is a new feature which will infuriate children as it allows parents to set limits on when and for how long each individual child can play for.

"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 child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game.

There's also the option to add extra game time an the choice to automatically log the child out of the PS4 once their allotted playtime is over. If the game is no longer accessible because your PSN subscription lapses, a PS Plus symbol will appear on the game with a lock to note that the game is no longer accessible. The update also includes a new PS Plus tab that includes all the premium content from PS Plus, as well as a new Hide App functionality that lets you hide certain apps and games from the Library. This means you can hide all those betas, trials, and demos that you didn't like. The update brings the PS4 to software version 5.50 and is codenamed KEIJI.

The Tournaments team page will be customizable with users' own team logo or background imported from a USB stick.

However, two new additions not detailed in our previous reporting are the new parental control settings and the ability to import custom wallpapers via USB images.

HDTV Supersampling for PS4 Pro. Outside of a few games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, PS4 Pro owners without a 4K TV on the other hand, have been left in a lurch in terms of supersampling since the system was released in late 2016. One of the sections allows you to see everything you've purchased on your account, while the other shows only what's now installed on your console.

The other features are mostly there to help with clutter and to make finding games in your library easier.

Additionally, users can access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu when listening to music on their PS4 and even press the square button as a shortcut for volume control when using Spotify on PlayStation Music. On the Media Player or the USB Music Player, Triangle works as the shortcut for play or pause.

Making this the third PS4 firmware in a row to tackle the notification menu, this update will allow you to delete old notifications, either individually or in bulk. Through it, you're also able to search for games you own but don't now have installed.

There are many PS4 themes and custom wallpapers online, including our own gallery of hundreds of video game-related images.
