The very lucky PS5 owners are getting their first massive update today. You’re not the only one in the PlayStation family. The PS4, which is owned by more than 100 million people around the world, is also undergoing a makeover.

PS4 firmware update 8.50 is available. It weighs just over 480MB and brings many new features to Sony’s previous generation console. As always, when you want to access the PlayStation Store or play online, you have no choice but to install it. That’s how it goes la vida, that’s where we live where we go, you could say.
Here are the contributions (and the pa yout) caused by this update:
Main functions of the system software update
- You can now share the game with PS5 players in Party.
- In Messages, you can now turn notifications on or off for any of the groups you belong to. From the group screen, open the Options menu and select Turn off notifications.
Other updated features
- On the game session details screen, you can now use the “Ask to join” button to request the session host to join their game session. The session leader can then send you an invitation to join the game session.
- If you are playing a game that you have hidden, other players will not be able to see that you are playing that game.
- We have updated the file format for stretched storage.
– When you connect a stretched storage unit, its file format is updated.
– Then you will not be able to use this device on a PS4 that has an earlier version of the system software installed.
- Communities are no longer available.
And as expected, the ax fell on the communities for several weeks. All that’s left is news and the PlayStation app to have fun with friends.
