How To Import Custom Wallpapers via USB To PS4

PS Plus February 2018

Sony today announced a new Gold Wireless Headset for its PlayStation 4 consoles.

If you signed up to beta test the update, keep an eye on your email for details on accessing it.

As a feature primarily designed for parents of children, the new Play Time Management feature coming with the PS4 5.50 update will allow tracking of how much the PS4 is used.

If you've not been accepted into the beta, fret not, as Sony has provided a sneak preview of some of the major features you can expect when update 5.50 arrives. This new feature will come under the console's parental controls and will allow Family Manager profiles to set limits on when their children can play and how long they're able to do so. "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". The system is set up to notify your child during gameplay so that he/she knows when they should save and quit. The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC. This feature makes it easier to see what games have been purchased but not installed.

Hiding apps: This convenience allows the user to disappear certain apps they won't be using again, reducing menu clutter; think betas, trials or other demos. 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. A new PS Plus tab will show all the games you've received for free as a member. If your membership has expired, you'll see a lock next to it, until you've resubscribed. Now players can view their friends (and who is already online) in the Quick Menu.

The mightily useful Quick Menu is also receiving some quality-of-life improvements, including the ability to quickly access specific friends in your custom list via the pulldown menu under the Friends tab. This also shows which friends are now online.

Listening to music on the PS4 will now feature Quick Menu shortcuts.

When you're on the Media Player or the USB Music Player, "triangle" will work as the shortcut for play or pause, and the "square" button as the volume control.

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. Notifications can be deleted at the press of a button.

The Tournaments team page will be customizable with users' own team logo or background imported from a USB stick. With the 5.5 update, you can insert a flash drive that has the image you want, and set it as your background from the Themes tab in Settings.
