While it will be interesting to hear the feedback from Update 5.0's beta testers, it's important to note that PS4 consoles undergoing the firmware trial may experience "unexpected issues", but Sony has assured fans that they can always downgrade the to current version of 4.73. The firmware is now in beta testing, and it brings a wide variety of changes, not the least of which is a redesigned master and sub-account system that makes it easier for families to manage their accounts. Codenamed NOBUNAGA, it's out today for those who were selected to be a beta tester for the next major PS4 system update.

Other broadcasting updates are for PS VR and the higher-powered PS4 Pro. This new system will also make it easier to set up PlayStation Network accounts for kids and customize parental control settings.

The new "family on PSN" feature will enable users to set up PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings for each user. Once the patch is in place, users will be able to create a list of all the people they wish to jump into their favorite multiplayer titles with like Overwatch or Destiny and send them all an invite, for example, with the feature replacing the old Favorite Groups tab.

Users will be able to bind a community that they own to their broadcast.

A new setting in the PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators Comments has been added.

A more detailed look at the update is also available on the Official PlayStation Blog. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast is displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode.

For Notifications, the PS4 5.0 system update will now let users disable pop-up notifications when they're watching videos.
