Last month, Sony announced that they will be releasing a new closed beta firmware update for PS4. The update is ow available for download, but only by the users who have registered their application for the beta test. Considering that there was very little information given about this firmware update, the owners of PS4 consoles will have the chance to individually discover the benefits it has on their user experience.
Even though the PS4 firmware update was only released in Europe, users have already begun to confirm some of the more noticeable changes that it brings.
First, it is now possible to delete the received notifications, which, up until now, kept lingering on the dashboard and were rather annoying, disrupting the whole gaming session. Moreover, the newly purchased games can simply be added to the library.
Another change brought by this new firmware update is the possibility to get notified when your friends are available online, through the use of a shortcut. Furthermore, there is now an option that can be activated for supersampling PS4 Pro high-resolution games to 1080p, thus offering users a very important graphics feature.
Last, but not least, another major improvement to the PS4 console is the option to create player teams and participate in Tournaments, chatting or enjoy multiple other social activities. Together with the graphic change option, these two modifications represent a significant evolution of Sony’s console, adding it a higher level of versatility and an improved user experience altogether.
Taking all the above into consideration, we must keep in mind that the changes identified so far might not be everything that the new PS4 firmware update 5.50 beta has to offer and that when it will be released worldwide, we might enjoy the surprise of finding other significant benefits for this console’s users.
