The PlayStation 3.50 update has a ton of unannounced features

Reddit users have discovered there's a lot more to PS4's Firmware 3.50 update than we know.

Shortly after the release of PS4's firmware 3.50 update, players have discovered several new features that were not previously announced by Sony.

According to the PS4 Firmware 3.50 [Megathread] on Reddit, these features range from the reintroduction of USB music playback -- a feature that was removed in a previous update -- to the option to disable the system's screenshot notifications (you can now take more screenshots with fewer pop-ups).  More hidden features include the ability to set a member limit for parties, the ability to use 4TB drives with (almost) no problems, and improvements to the Live from PlayStation menu.  

PlayStation 4's firmware 3.50 update launched a few days ago and was the biggest update the PS4 has had in a while.  The update was notable for a few reasons:  It finally brought remote play to Mac and PC and gave players the ability to enable notifications when their friends are online.  Finally, it added an "Appear Offline" mode if you would like to play your games with no interruptions. 

What is your favorite new feature of the 3.50 update?  Sound off in the comments below!

    I love Remote Play on my PC!

    It runs so smoothly. Just a shame for me, it had a rocky start, wouldn't recognise my controller even though Windows had. So all it needs to do now is allow for 1080p streaming like the Xbox One does.

    Totally agree. I booted up the Phantom Pain to test it out and I was floored at how smoothly everything ran. Fingers crossed 1080p streaming comes soon!
