  • PS4 Firmware 5.0 Beta Rolls Out Today; Change Notification Colors, Message Improvements, Family on PSN, and More

The 5.00 update addresses this is by overhauling and retooling the entire master/sub account system.

Elsewhere, Sony is making PlayStation Network family settings more flexible. If you signed up for the beta and were selected to participate, you'll receive an email from Sony with instructions on how to download it and get started.

Broadcasting aside, the PlayStation 5.0 firmware update will also bring changes to messaging.

Prior to the update, PlayStation users were only able to have favourite groups, which now has been upgraded to custom lists, and features the option to not only add your favourite people into specific groups, but also set up teams or groups for specific games such as Destiny, making it easy to set up a fire team for Strikes, Nightfalls and even Raids.

Google Drops Big Update On Productivity Tools
This option strips out the suggested edits and comments to give a clearer picture of what the final product will look like. This feature is available from the three dots menu icon on the bottom right of the screen in all three productivity apps.

Family Manager, parents/guardians and child accounts: Each family on PSN will now have a Family Manager which can promote another adult in the family to be a parent or guardian which can customize parental control levels of each child account.

Also on tap are a bunch of broadcast feature updates, including the ability to pin your community to your broadcast, so spectators can jump right to your community page to find out about it.

The Quick Menu, which can be accessed by pressing and holding down the PS button on the DualShock 4 controller, has also been updated.

Most of the tweaks are solidly quality-of-life improvements, though some are better late than never: You'll finally be able to switch off notifications when watching a movie or TV show, for example. In addition, PlayStation 4 Pro users will be able to stream on Twitch at 1080p and in 60 frames-per-second. If they're viewing the message on their phones through the PlayStation Messages app, the track will play on the Spotify app. Not to mention, the refinements will also allowing one to change how much of a message is displayed - in addition to its color - when playing, experiencing, or watching any form of content on the console.

But the new phone might be devoid of a 3.5mm audio jack port, as Google intends to use the additional space for stereo speakers. There's also word that the phone could be dust and waterproof thanks to an IP68-certified body, but this is still a rumor.

The Quick Menu fights ever harder to justify that long press of the PlayStation Button. And there's good news for everyone who hates navigating through the menu to see notifications (which is, well, everyone): They're now visible in the Quick Menu. If your friends are on PS4, they can listen to the track right inside the message by booting up Quick Menu, and if they're on their mobile device, they can jump directly to the Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song.

Finally, the update brings new languages, and the consoles now support Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese. This means you won't have to exit your game every time you want to check on the progress of a download for example.

Improved tournaments bracket viewer: A new bracket viewer will show full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4.

Sony has not provided a timetable for when the update will be finalized and released to the general masses.
