PS4 System Software 5.50 Beta Key Features Confirmed

Child accounts will be notified during gameplay to let them know when to save and quit their game. 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.

All of the new features are described in this PlayStation Blog post.

The "This PS4" tab lists every app now installed on the PS4. You can import images from a USB device, and you'll even be able to make adjustments like crop, zoom and so on to fit the dashboard. Xbox One added play limits previous year with the Creators Update, and the Xbox One X hardware has been able to supersample games since last November. Like the previous feature, this one is all about giving players the choice to truly make things their own.

Just hop into the system settings menu to activate it and you should be good to go. There's also a section where you can see which games you only "own" through PlayStation Plus. For instance, many are still crying out for the ability to change their usernames, and others are just waiting for the company to allow PSN parties to hold more than 8 players at a time. When selected, the former will list all the applications installed on the overall system, while the latter will list the applications you purchased on your personal PSN ID.

Certain games already have "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. Sony also made tweaks to the music function, "Whenever you're listening to music on PS4, you'll be able to access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu". Like all the updates that came before it, this will add a bevy of new features and quality of life improvements to the PS4.
