According to Sony, the update would eventually affect some crucial areas of the PS4 system. The PS4’s system library has also been divided into two different areas. The first area of the library allows you to see all the objects that were purchased on your account. The second area only displays the objects currently installed on the PS4 gaming console.



Gamers can also check a section where they could see the games they owned via PlayStation Plus. And if your subscription has already lapsed, all the games stored on the PS4 system would be displayed with a lock icon placed on top of the PlayStation Plus logo.


Through this, gamers would also know if they could re-subscribe to regain access to the game. There will be a new option that would allow gamers to hide “certain” objects from the Purchased list, including trials, betas, and demos.


Under 5.50 update, gamers could also import any images through a USB-enabled devices if they could apply photos as a background. Previously, gamers could actually implement custom wallpaper, but Sony said that a new storage device option was added to the system’s Themes area under the Settings menu.



Also, Sony said that it added a new Play Time Management feature to impose both restriction and control on using the gaming console. This feature wants to limit the usage time of PS4, especially for children. Using the feature allows you to track the time when PS4 was used and set the daily time limits.
