Various beta testers of the new Playstation 4 firmware update 5.00 have reported that the update apparently has optimized the console's homescreen, allowing it to move around faster in addition to all of the different features that have been added.

There's no telling when Playstation 4 firmware update 5.00 will actually come out, since it's still in beta testing, but hopefully Playstation will work out all the kinks and get it to us soon. The company says the headlining feature of the update is the new family management system, which makes it easier for a player to manage friends.

Sony has also added some VR-related settings as well, dubbed as "Display Message to Spectators and Spectator Comments".

Sony with the beta 5 is replacing the master/sub-account system on the gaming console with the "Family on PlayStation Network". This brand new system will give users a more flexible experience, especially for families, by providing a simpler way to set up accounts for children. This was created to make it easier to manage the user's list of friends as well as access specific groups.

For the Broadcast feature, the update is making several optimizations in the Communities, PlayStation VR, and PlayStation 4 Pro options. The System Software 5.0 will also enable users to share their favorite music to their friends through the PS4.

Apart from these changes, Sony will also add support for bundle and compilation discs, with or without add-ons, and for discs that support games and add-ons that do not require the developer to rework any code. First, the update will be providing the option to turn off pop-up notifications while watching a movie or TV show on the PS4.

You can now forget about annoying notifications during streaming content because you choose to disable them from the menu. A generic user icon will be displayed, hiding the sender's ID. However, the user will have to get the $399 version of the PS4, which was released last November.

Players who were not selected to be part of the beta will have to wait a bit more, as the official release date of the update has not been announced.
