Sony has launched the new System Software Update 5.00 for the PlayStation 4 for all PS4 players, after over a month in beta testing. The update brings a ton of new features, both minor and major. These include the new Family option for parental control, changes to the follow option, and much more.
The new PlayStation 4 System Software Update 5.00 has been released for everyone. The update has been in beta testing for about a month and a half now, thanks to players who volunteered to test it out. Now, everybody can enjoy the new features that System Update 5.00 brings to the table.
First off, let’s go over some of the main features from the update. You can now add up to seven family members to your account. This will allow parents solid control over their children’s accounts, including restricting some features. Each kid’s account can be configured separately, from your PC or smartphone. You can also add several adults to the list, as parents or guardians. The second addition is that you can now follow any account you want, even verified accounts. Simpy go to the person’s profile and select the “follow” option. You’ll automatically follow everyone that’s on your friend list, with the option of unfollowing them. The system will give you recommendations on who to follow, based on the games that you play. Also, you can choose who can follow you, as well as create custom lists of friends, view your notifications in the quick menu, etc.
There’s a host of other changes that the new update brings. For example, the screen layout of the Messages has been improved, including the option of receiving music and URLs giving you previews of what has been linked to. There’s also a number of other new features in the quick menu, notifications, broadcast options, and so on.
