How To Import Custom Wallpapers via USB To PS4

Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

Update 5.50 will include Play Time Management, Library UI updates, Quick Menu enhancements and more. This feature will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on PSN. Notifications will be sent to the player about the impending cut off allowing them to find a place to save, but there's also the option for an immediate sign out as well. This will also allow parents to set playtime limits - even from a PC or smartphone. "In addition, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over". This makes the PS4 Pro render the game in 4K, and then downsample it to your TV's resolution. Sony describes it as: "Certain games already have the "supersampling" benefits as part of their "PS4 Pro Enhanced" feature set, but this new mode can enhance the experience for those games that don't already have the feature".

Version 5.5 also adds several new tabs to Library, including "This PS4", which lists all the apps that are installed on your system, and a tab with your name and avatar, which lists all the apps you've purchased with your PSN ID.

Another section of the library allows you to see what games you now own through PlayStation Plus, keeping in mind that you'll lose access to said games should your subscription lapse.

The PS Plus tab will show every game that users own from PS Plus' Monthly Free Games. If this happens, the games will be shown with a lock icon on top of the PS Plus logo, making it more obvious that re-subscribing will restore access to those games. So, you can hide betas, trials or demos you may not go back to.

Import your own images to the PS4 through a USB to use as a background image.

All of the new features are described in this PlayStation Blog post. The main new feature seems to be a slightly updated design, and a giant "NEW" on the front of the box, lest you forget for a few minutes that this was in fact an item fresh off the production line.

As of update 5.50, players will also be able to use custom wallpapers through the use of USB.

The Quick Menu is being made, well, more quick to navigate in update 5.5 with the ability to access custom friends lists. Once imported, you can even zoom, crop and preview them in-situ to help get the flawless look on your dashboard.

Just hop into the system settings menu to activate it and you should be good to go. On top of that, pressing the "square" button will let you change up volume controls for both Spotify and PlayStation Music. You'll also be able to delete old notifications to help clean up your list. Xbox One added play limits past year with the Creators Update, and the Xbox One X hardware has been able to supersample games since last November.

Sony notes: Certain games' image clarity may not improve with this feature.
