  • Here’s Every New PS4 5.50 Update Feature Explained

Sony's next major PlayStation 4 system update is now rolling out to selected gamers in the firm's beta program.

The introduction of the Play Time Management feature seems to be the highlight of the update, letting family members track the play time of the child family members on PSN. Child accounts will be notified during gameplay to let them know when to save and quit their game.

Hold onto your seats because a new firmware update for the PS4 Pro is about to bring your older TVs back to life.

As requested, we're adding a function that will allow you to hide certain applications under the "Purchased" tab in the Library.

This includes the ability to import images via USB and then modify pictures to get the flawless look.

PS4 has had support for both store themes and turning screenshots into custom backgrounds for a while now, so you were able to easily display pot-smoking grim reapers or sweet Uncharted 4 vistas as you wished. Restrictions can include total play time, available hours for play, and whether or not to log out as soon as play time has elapsed. With the 5.5 update, you can insert a flash drive that has the image you want, and set it as your background from the Themes tab in Settings.

It's not about one guy, it's about the team. "We're going to enjoy these next few days". "I just don't feel welcome into that house", Blount told reporters past year .

As of update 5.50, players will also be able to use custom wallpapers through the use of USB. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you'll know you can not play the game until you've re-subscribed. The PS4 section lists all of the apps and games now installed on the console, while the tab with your avatar and name shows what has been purchased with your PSN account. Under Setting Family Management, you'll see options to manage playtime for each day. The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC. If this happens, the games will be shown with a lock icon on top of the PS Plus logo, making it more obvious that re-subscribing will restore access to those games. The most notable addition though, is supersampling with the PS4 Pro - this allows those using HDTVs to get a better visual experience when playing PS4 games, according to Sony. Games that render at a higher resolution on 4K TVs will downscale to match the HDTV.

So while it is no PSN ID name change, the PS4 System Software Update 5.50 is quite substantial for anyone who owns a PS4 or PS4 Pro. Though not applicable to all games, it still allows PS4 Pro owners who haven't upgraded their television to see an improvement to image clarity. With the beta in full swing, Sony is detailing what testers can expect from 5.50. The Quick Menu has also been updated with more options when you're listening to music through Spotify.
