Check out Sony's blog post for an even more detailed rundown of the new features in the 5.50 update.

The update introduces a new family Play Time Management feature, the ability to upload custom wallpapers via USB, enhancements to notifications and the Quick Menu, and more. All the while, notifications will be sent to the child accounts during play so they know when to save and quit.

"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". Some games already have supersampling as part of their PS4 Pro Enhanced features, though this new setting will bring that same experience to games that don't already include that feature.

First off, your Library will now automatically be divided into two tabs: "This PS4" and one displaying your username. Images can be zoomed and cropped to get them looking just right. Background music will also be coming to PlayStation Now, though as with local gameplay, background music may not always be available.

Play-time management: This utility is geared more to parents, or players who can't control their habit.

From the dashboard go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.

Import Custom Wallpapers via USB: Users can now import images and use them as their background wallpaper. Guardians can also remotely add additional play time, and the system will notify the user when time is about to expire so they can find a spot to save their game if necessary.

The "This PS4" tab will list all of the applications that are installed on your PS4 system, while a tab with your name/avatar will list all of the apps purchased with your PSN ID. You can also now manually delete notifications.

Additional features include Quick Menu improvements that add shortcut buttons for media controls and access to individual friends, as well as customization options for team pages in Tournaments.

With Background Music on PlayStation Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now. As previously leaked those with a PlayStation 4 Pro but who do not own a 4K TV can take advantage of the Supersampling mode, which renders the image at a high resolution but then squishes it back in to 1080p. 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. Over the course of a console's life, it's all but guaranteed to get new features, interface overhauls, and tweaks to make it more user-friendly. With the beta in full swing, Sony is detailing what testers can expect from 5.50.
