Not too long ago we saw Sony make their sign-ups for PS4 v5.50 firmware beta available, today the new firmware update goes live to those who signed up to the beta.




In this new firmware update Sony will be adding a slew of new quality of life features such as hiding apps, play-time management, library UI updates and background music availability.


Users that get selected for the beta will be lucky enough to be some of the first PlayStation 4 players to customize their console background, as Sony has added support for selecting new background images through USB.


Sony also discusses Supersampling on their blogpost, "PS4 Pro users will see a new 'supersampling mode' under Settings, which enables those with HDTVs (i.e., 1080p or less) to enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games. With supersampling mode, games that render to a higher resolution when connected to a 4K TV will downscale to match the HDTV - allowing PS4 Pro owners to leverage the benefits of an image clarity boost even if they don't own a 4K TV"
