The 3.50 update for Sony PlayStation 4 was released last week and has added Remote Play support for PC and Mac, a feature that lets you play PS4 games on your desktop. There are other improvements as well, but a few Reddit users have also discovered some unannounced tweaks.
The list of unannounced tweaks is long, but range from USB music playback to ability to use 4 TB hard drives without problems, improvements to the Live from PS menu, option to disable the console’s screenshot notification pop-up and others. It’s best to check the whole list below.
1.User Scheduled/Created Events
2.Play Together button – easily invite people in your party to the same game
3.Friend online notifications can be turned on or off on a person to person basis
5.Remote play on PC/Mac
6.Dailymotion Live Support for streaming etc.
7.Teens (13-17) can now create their own accounts with limited access to play offline games, rather than having to use a sub account.
8.Easier to search for communities by text, language, time zone
9.You can now share OTHER people’s activities so your friend’s can see it too.
10.Tweeks to messaging – you can see short replies to messages without jumping to a different screen
11.You can TAG other players when sharing video and screenshots (if you have your fb/twitter permissions enabled, the tags will carry over to the sharing on those sites).
12.You can check the status of PSN (this is a feature? just use the website…)
13.USB music player is back.
14.Improvements to PS+ (improvements to managing online storage and ability to see friends who play the same games as you).
1.You can disable the screenshot on-screen notification (in Settings under Notifications) allowing you to take multiple screenshots in a row without the screenshot taken popup. The sound indicating the screenshot was taken still functions as normal.
2.Life From PlayStation Improvements: – There’s a search field on the game list now. Previously you had to use the “global” search, that’d return matches for everything (pre-recorded, videos, screenshots) and not just live streams. – You can pin up to three games that will stay on the top of the list. I watch Bloodborne and DS2 streams all the time, now I don’t have to scroll down every time to find them.
3.You can set a party member limit now. From 2-8 people.
4.Issue with early PS4s and >2TB HDDs has (probably) been fixed.
