Sony is trialling some new features that could be integrated into the PlayStation 4's system software in the near future. The PlayStation system software 5.50 beta also includes a supersampling mode on the PS4 Pro that Sony says will enable players with HDTVs (1080p or less) to "enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games". Here's a look at what's coming soon.

Supersampling mode will allow PlayStation 4 Pro owners to experience the benefits of higher resolution rendering on some games, even if they do not own a 4K TV. That means you may see a boost in visual clarity when playing games enhanced for the Pro, even if you're still on a Full HD screen. Microsoft also offers the same feature for its Xbox One X 4K HDR game console and their own list of select games.

Additionally, Sony is adding a "This PS4" tab that lists all your apps that are installed on your PS4, and a "PS Plus" tab that clarifies which games you own from the PS Plus Monthly Free Games service. A helpful lock icon will materialise when your subscription runs out, letting you know it's time to renew.

Sony detailed the contents of the PlayStation 4 version 5.50 update in an official PlayStation blog post, where it said that selected beta testers will receive an email with instructions on how to download and install the firmware upgrade.

Another Quick Menu modification will allow users to listen to music on their PS4 using new shortcuts.

And music playback will get some handy shortcut controls, too: from the Quick Menu, you'll be able to use square for volume control in both Spotify and the system music player, and use triangle to play or pause a track in the latter app. Fair enough: now you'll have the tools to make that happen without watching over his or her shoulder.

Hawaii Emergency Agency Worker Says Was Sure Attack Was Real
According to the Federal Communications Commission, measures have been taken by the agency to avoid a repeat of the incident. A Hawaii state department of defense spokesman, Lt Col Charles Anthony, declined to comment on what the former worker said.

We're introducing Play Time Management, which will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on family on PSN.

Yee also proudly announced Play Time Management as the next major addition to the PS4 software. This feature should come in handy for folks who often play with their friends online, but hate having to click out of their game and tediously navigate through a labyrinthian menu.

- Along the lines of the library management tweaks above, you can also delete old notifications in v5.50.

Moving on to the new wallpaper component of the update, it lets users import images from their USB sticks for custom wallpaper creation.

The option to fully customize your team's tournament page will be available.

- And if you stream games via PlayStation Now, you'll be able to play your own background music, just like you would with locally downloaded games.
