PS4 Firmware Update 5.00 Full List of Features Revealed

PS4 Firmware Update 5.00 Full List of Features Revealed”

The existing master/sub-account system is being redesigned to be more family friendly, allowing the promotion of accounts to "parent status" and each child account can now have individual levels of restriction.

After opening registrations last month, Sony has announced in a blog post that invitations are being sent out for successful applicants to the latest system update beta test, detailing key features in the process.

Individual parental controls will also be available. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually attuned for each child. PS4 Pro can now support streaming on Twitch at 1080p 60fps, it's easy to get jealous if still running on a PS4.

Managing a friends list on any console is always a bit of a pain, PS4 is remedying that with the new feature of a "Custom Lists" tab.

This will allow you to create and edit custom lists of your friends and arrange them into specific groups, based on the games you play, or groups of friends you like to hang out with online.

Communities can now be linked to broadcasts, and PlayStation VR is getting a "Display Message to Spectators and Spectators" Comments' option which will show up comments from broadcasts even when you are in VR mode. All a spectator needs to do is click the community button and they can jump right to the community page to check out any details.

For those who own Sony's Virtual Reality platform, the new update also adds the ability to receive spectator comments during broadcasts. This makes it much easier for VR broadcasters to keep up on comments and communicate with their viewers. With the new update, users will be able to directly send songs and Spotify links via the PlayStation 4's messaging system, in addition to the PlayStation mobile app.

PlayStation VR now supports 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound on your headphones when watching Blu-rays and DVDs in Cinematic Mode.

In addition, if you're part of multiple message groups, you can now easily leave several groups at once. Then you can use that list to easily message and invite your Helldivers squad (hey, Helldivers is still really good) without disturbing your Destiny raid buddies. The new update allows users to turn off message notifications when using apps such as Netflix. This can be enabled by going to the Notifications under Settings.

You can now turn off message previews on your pop-up notifications. For example, you'll be able to check on download progress and see new party invites.

The quick menu pop up side bar has also been tweaked, and users will now be able to change the colour from the default black to white, giving the option of contrast for whatever looks better to the user. A Leave Party option has also been added to Quick Menu. The system clock is also promptly displayed in the upper-right corner of the screen when accessing the Quick Menu.

A new bracket viewer has been added that shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on the console. Making it easier to see current tournament standing.

It's a hefty update that brings some great features to the PS4 and PS4 Pro only improving upon the changes and features already added and built in.

Updated language support: With firmware 5.0 the PS4 user interface now supports Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Greek, Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese languages.
