For those wanting to limit how much a PS4 is used, the new Play Time Management feature has been introduced, which is primarily intended for use with kids. The family managers/guardians can also set the PS4 to log out once the playtime session is over, and increase or decrease game time on the go, via the web portal. Sony has now announced via the PlayStation Blog some of the exciting new features that it will include when it comes out later this year. The "This PS4" tab will list all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system. You can zoom and crop the image before saving it as your background, so no need to fiddle with dimensions or resolution beforehand. Just be aware, similar to when playing a game on disc or via digital download on PS4, background music may not always be available. To avoid saving woes or untimely quitting, the child will be notified during gameplay before playtime is over. Simply head to Settings Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.
Another section of the library allows you to see what games you now own through PlayStation Plus, keeping in mind that you'll lose access to said games should your subscription lapse. The PS4 section lists all of the apps and games now installed on the console, while the tab with your avatar and name shows what has been purchased with your PSN account.
Notifications Update: This lets users delete old notifications from their notifications list. If the game is no longer accessible because your PSN subscription lapses, a PS Plus symbol will appear on the game with a lock to note that the game is no longer accessible.
For example, a parent can decide that their child is allowed to play their console for a total of two hours each day, but not play at all after 10pm.

As with all major PS4 firmwares, this one brings a host of new features, some of which have been requested by fans for a while. Games rendering to a higher resolution on a 4K TV will downscale to match HDTVs, which allows PS4 Pro owners to receive the benefits of an image clarity boost even without a 4K TV. The latter feature should come in handy if you have a bunch of content you don't plan to revisit.
