PS4 firmware 5.50 update launches with supersampling in tow”

SONY has detailed the changes coming in the PS4's 5.50 update, including supersampling, library hide options and custom wallpapers. Because PS4 Pro's added power and modes benefit different games in different ways, please note that certain games' image clarity may not improve with this new feature. You can split games into games installed on the machine, and those that come from PlayStation Plus. But what are the six features you simply need to know about? If you choose, the PlayStation 4 can automatically log your child out when play time ends.

You can limit how long your child plays per day, and set playable hours to prevent play late at night or other unwanted times. Beta testers have been playing around with the new features for a while but now it is available to the general audience.

For those who subscribe to PS Now, Sony's game streaming service, you will finally be able to play background music while streaming the game. 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.

The update adds a number of features like a special tab for PS Plus games on the library section, so users know which titles they have received through the program and will be able to download when they have an active subscription. It will also be possible to access a custom friends list in the Quick Menu to see what your closest pals are up to.

Music playback functions on the quick menu have been improved. If you're playing on a 1080p or 2K display, your PS4 Pro will now supersample your in-game visuals, resulting in sharper images and better graphics fidelity in general. These can be imported from a USB storage device and can contain a team logo, team cover images, background image for the home screen, or image for the message group.

The new parental control feature earned praise from Chris Byrne, content director at review site TTPM.com, which stands for toys, tots, pets and more.
