Sony has today made available to download the latest PlayStation 4 System Update 5.00 Beta, which brings with it a completely overhauled family management system, 1080p60 broadcasting with PS4 Pro together with other enhancements.
The beta for the PlayStation 4 system’s next major system software update 5.00 (codenamed NOBUNAGA) is now available for those interested in trying out the new features ahead of its official global rollout.
Sony explains a little more about the new features and enhancements and additions you can expect from the latest PlayStation 4 System 5.0 Update.
We’re overhauling the current master/sub-account system, and introducing the new “Family on PlayStation Network.” This new system will offer a more flexible experience for families on PS4 by making it easier to setup PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings.
Family on PSN will allow multiple adults to be part of a single family. 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. In place of the current ‘Favorite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab within Friends, which allows you to create and edit custom lists of your friends.
If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen. Good news Twitch users: with this update, PS4 Pro will support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.
