The feature of streaming at 1080p and 60fps will only be available on PS4 Pro consoles. Based on what many reports are claiming so far, firmware update 5.0 will improve a lot of things on the consoles' system.

Players will have the ability to block users, as well as the option to choose whether or not they want anyone or just existing friends to be able to follow their account.

There's only one crucial bit of information about update 5.0 that we don't yet know: When it will release. These x.0 version updates are the only ones where users can expect major new features. The ability to Remote Play and Share Play at 1080p is already possible with the PS4 Pro.

Lastly, with 5.0, system notifications will be visible from your Quick Menu so you don't need to head back to your Home screen. Previously, Twitch streams directly from the PS4 were limited to 720p. With the new update, pressing the PlayStation button will launch the revised menu, which nows shows notifications in addition to shortcuts and other standard options.

"According to Eurogamer, the change has been made by Sony "[to] encourage more sharing of content and more interactions". Additionally, requests can be sent by other PS4 users to join the same family. Now if you have sub or child accounts on your main console you'll be able to create a family account in which adult accounts will be able to act in a parent/guardian role and set parental controls on an account-by-account basis. Better yet, all parental controls will be accessible from a web application on your PC or phone, saving you from having to boot up the PS4 every time you want to approve your child's game purchase.

As of now, users can select only a few accounts to follow, including those of developers and YouTube personalities.
