PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0 will add 1080p60 Twitch streaming

Tearaway Unfolded

The feature of streaming at 1080p and 60fps will only be available on PS4 Pro consoles.

Twitch Streaming will now run at 1080p 60fps for those running the 5.0 beta update on PS4 Pro.

PS4 Pro Streamers will be happy with this update, as it will allow them to stream at 1080p/60fps. Right now, the only accounts you can follow are verified accounts, which are mostly made up by official game accounts, developers, and popular Youtubers. According to the update notes, Sony is doing this to "encourage more sharing of content and more interactions" among players and "boost the viral potential of UGC" for developers.

Players will be able to follow anyone on the platform, regardless of verification, without filling up the 1,000 friend limit. This means you don't have to fill up your friends list in order to get updates.

You will be able to choose if you only want existing friends or anybody to follow you.

New family accounts will be able to feature multiple adult accounts in a family, able to act in a parent/guardian role and set parental controls on a per-account basis, so each child has different communications, content-viewing and spending limit privileges.

Sony is also introducing a new web application to manage family accounts via PC and smartphone.

The final major change that Eurogamer mentioned is that you'll be able to view system notifications and the status of downloads/uploads from the Quick Menu. Additionally, requests can be sent by other PS4 users to join the same family.

Other changes include event push notifications, VR mode broadcasting will allow spectator comments on screen, broadcasts can be linked to the PlayStation Community, and support for bundle and compilation discs and more.

Details about the PlayStation's upcoming firmware version 5.0 have leaked ahead of the software's actual launch, tipping console owners about the features and tweaks they can expect in the near future.
