Sony has rolled out a beta version of the upcoming firmware 5.50 (codenamed KEIJI) for the PlayStation4 operating system.
Even if you are not in the beta program, we wanted to give you a sneak preview of features you can expect in this update.
Sony has revealed some features in an upcoming PlayStation 4 update that include tools for play time management, custom wallpapers, and library enhancements. Family Managers can set Play Time through the PS4 directly or through the PSN online app.
PS4 system software 5.50 adds ability to limit a child's play time
A new option has been added for parents or users to specify how long you play. In addition, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over. Microsoft also offers the same feature for its Xbox One X 4K HDR game console and their own list of select games.
Other features include new tabs that help organize content that is directly installed on the PS4 system or games you have in your library you previously played or unlocked with PS Plus Monthly free games. 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.
A slightly naughtier option which will allow you to hide certain applications that you don't want others to notice.
The update also includes enhancements to the interface, letting users quickly message or invite friends, change volume, and more from the newly revamped Quick Menu. You can also see who's now online. This will be more apparent to those whose subscriptions have lapsed as titles will still appear, albeit with a locked icon to show that players can have access to the title again once their subscription is renewed.
Tesla's losses expected to grow on Model 3 delays

A new feature called "Background Music" on PlayStation Now will allow users to play their favourite tracks on supported games. You can also now manually delete notifications. Users may also press the "triangle" button to play or pause music when they are on the Media Player or the USB Music Player.

All the reaction as England's World Cup kit is revealed
The new England kits carry on the succession of attractive Three Lions uniforms Nike have produced since they became England's kit maker in a £400m deal in 2016.
PS4 Pro users taking part in the beta will see a new "supersampling mode" under Settings, which enables those with HDTVs (i.e., 1080p or less) to enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games.
Going into more details about the new supersampling mode, Sony is claiming that it will let some games render at higher resolutions that then downscale to the native resolution of a 1080p TV.
PS4 Pro owners will now be able to supersample older PS4 games to improve the graphical quality.
