Major PS4 update adds family features and the power to hide games

The silent but deadly system software update is packing some pretty powerful features, including a whole host of parental control options that should come in handy as the console covets a more casual audience.

The effect depends on the game - not every improvement will be noticeable.

The background image of the theme is also available for you to glimpse at, while the design features multiple characters from some of the famous game titles as well as some upcoming games.

Kids will receive an on-screen notification when their play time is up, with any excess time recorded in the PlayStation app or on PlayStation's website. If needed, the family manager/guardians can apply playtime restrictions to make sure that the child is only playing for a set amount of time or within set playable hours. Beta testers have been playing around with the new features for a while but now it is available to the general audience. The "This PS4" tab lists all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system, and the tab with the user's name lists all the apps that they have purchased with the PSN ID. By pressing the options button in the purchased section you can hide games if you want, as well as view PlayStation Plus and PSVR games easily in a new menu.

Updates to photo editing allow customized logos and backgrounds with your favorite images. The third new Library tab is a PS+ tab, showing which games in your collection are from the monthly free giveaway selections.

Whenever you're listening to music on PS4, you'll be able to access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu.

You can now delete notifications. You can import your own images to PS4 from a USB stick and set it as your wallpaper.

For PS4 Pro owners who don't have 4K TVs, there is a new "supersampling mode" under Settings that allows players with 1080p or lower HDTVs to have enhanced visuals on some PS4 games. You'll then have an option to select the flash drive you have plugged into the PS4, and after choosing the photo you'd like, you can crop and move it around to get the ideal look.
