For those of you with children, update 5.50 will introduce 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 PSN". Apart from setting this to check on their kid's playtime, 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.

The firm writes: "The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC", Sony says. Note that the picture files on a USB stick need to be located in a folder named "IMAGES" for the PS4 to recognize them. Simply head to Settings Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. You'll also be able to customize your Tournaments team page with a team logo or other artwork saved off of a USB drive. "This PS4" will show only the applications that are now installed on your system - as in, the ones that you'll actually be interested in seeing 90 percent of the time - with further subdivisions for games and apps.

The "This PS4" tab will list all of the applications that are installed on your PS4 system, while a tab with your name/avatar will list all of the apps purchased with your PSN ID. Some PS Now games will also let you listen to your own tunes while streaming a classic title from Sony's servers. If one's PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock appears next to games obtained from PS Plus.

Hide apps: This feature is great for clearing up the clutter in your "Purchased" tab in the Library. So, you can hide betas, trials or demos you may not go back to.
