PS4 5.0 Update Fully Detailed, Beta Launches Today

The Family Manager can promote another adult inside the family to a Parent/Guardian, who can then customize parental control levels of children's accounts.

The new feature of dropping out of multiple message groups is now also available, making easier than ever to unclog what might be an overwhelming notifications mess that comes from being part of multiple groups. The "Favourite Groups" tab found in the Friends list is being replaced by new "Custom Lists" which lets you create and edit custom lists of your friends and arrange them into specific groups.

Have a few different groups of friends you play games with? Game invites can be sent to groups as well.

If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast.

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. Sony has added a new feature that will allow the broadcaster to view spectator comments in VR mode. PS4 Pro can now support streaming on Twitch at 1080p 60fps, it's easy to get jealous if still running on a PS4.

There are also some general ease of use improvements - music can now be directly shared in a message, allowing recipients to open the song on their PS4 or mobile device, and Notifications becoming more easily accessible through the Quick Menu.

Notifications are also being improved when watching films and TV, as you can now disable message and other notification pop-ups while watching media.

"Furthermore, you now have the option to turn off message previews on your pop-up notifications", Sony said. Turing the setting off the pop-up notification will hide the message senders' online ID, displaying a generic icon and message instead.

Lastly, you'll have the option to change the color of your pop-up notifications to either white (default) or black. Now players can check Notifications such as the progress of game downloads/installations or new party invites that be accessed easily from the Quick Menu meaning less down time. You can also leave a party from within that menu and see your current Spotify playlist.

Additionally, VR users can now also enjoy 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound through the use of supported headphones, making the cinematic experience in VR even more immersive.

This shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on the PS4.

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

To be honest, there's nothing really all that exciting here at all, so it's definitely the weakest major PS4 firmware update that the console's received since launch.
