PS4 Update 5.00 Beta Available Now
18 August 2017, 01:04 | Yvette Williams
PS4 firmware 5.0 beta rolls out today with PS4 Pro 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming, message and notification improvements
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 updatebeta test, detailing key features in the process. The 5.00 update addresses this is by overhauling and retooling the entire master/sub account system. If you managed to get into the beta, you'll be able to download firmware 5.00 and try out some new features as of today.
As noted below, firmware update 5.0 introduces Family Accounts, friend management, new features for broadcast, notifications, messages and other additions. The firmware is now in beta testing, and it brings a wide variety of changes, not the least of which is a redesigned master and sub-account system that makes it easier for families to manage their accounts.
When the update is live, it will make it easier to set up PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings for each user. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually controlled for each child account.
The "Favorite Groups" tab is being replaced with a new "Custom Lists" tab that allows users to create and edit custom lists of their friends. For those who missed out on the opportunity, below is a detailed list of all the new changes and features Sony has added to its popular console. When a live broadcast is linked to a community, the community button will appear on the Live from PlayStation section of the screen.
A new setting in PlayStation VR has been added: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators' Comments. Prior to the update this only occurred during cinematic mode, but now users will still be able to read and keep up with messages from viewers even when in VR mode.
The 5.00 update (codenamed NOBUNAGA) is headlined by the launch of 1080p/60fps streaming on Twitch.
You can now disable notifications pop-ups for movie or TV show viewing. The pop-up color can also be changed from white to black. Now, users will be able to view more notifications inside the Quick Menu.
Through the use of PlayStation Music and Spotify, users were able to send their favourite songs to other users through social media apps such as Facebook.
Speaking of VR, those watching Blu-Rays or DVDs in cinematic mode get 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound when listening on headphones.
You can now share an individual Spotify or PlayStation Music track via a message.
Finally, several new system language options have been added to the console, which include: Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai, and Vietnamese. This ensures that users won't have to pause or leave their game and dig through menus just to see the notifications.
Furthermore, the Quick Menu is set to be updated to have more options after the PS4's Update 5.0 is implemented.
Improved tournaments bracket viewer: A new bracket viewer will show full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4.
