New Social Features

 

  • Appear Offline

On your Profile tab, we’ve added a new option called ‘Online Status.’ From here, you can choose to ‘Appear Offline.’ This could be useful if you want to play games or watch movies without your friends knowing you’re online. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile, or by holding down the PS Button on DualShock 4 to bring up the Quick Menu.

 

  • Friend Online Notification

Now you can choose to get notified when your friends come online. To receive notifications, select a player on your friends list, press Options, and select ‘Notify When Online.’

 

  • User Scheduled Event

On the Events tab, we’re adding the ability to schedule gameplay sessions with your friends. Just select ‘Create Event,’ and you’ll be able to make an invitation for an upcoming gameplay session. Choose the day, time, game, and send it off to your friends. When your event starts, users who registered will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.

 

You can also share an event to a group, or a community that you’re a member of. Once shared, the event will be sent as a message, or posted to a community wall, and members can register from there

 

  • Play Together

This feature allows all members of a Party to see what each person is playing so that you can easily join a friend’s game, or start a new game together.

 

Other New System Features

 

  • Remote Play (PC/Mac)

With this update, we’re expanding PS4’s Remote Play capabilities to work with Windows PC and Mac.

Remote Play on PC / Mac is compatible with the following system software:

  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 10 or later
  • OS X 10.10
  • OS X 10.11

 

You’ll be able to select from the following resolution and frame rate options, depending on your Internet bandwidth.

  • Resolution options: 360p, 540p, 720p (Default: 540p)
  • Frame rate : Standard (30fps), High (60fps) (Default: Standard)

 

You can use one DualShock 4 as the controller for Remote Play, which needs to be connected to your PC / Mac via a USB cable.

 

 

Along with PS4’s 3.50 system software update, PlayStation App version 3.50 is out tomorrow as well. The main new features of this update are as follows:

  • User Scheduled Event
  • Users can schedule gameplay sessions with friends
  • Dailymotion has been added to Live from PlayStation
  • Other players’ shared activities appear in your activities

 

That’s a look at some of the big additions in this update. Of course, there are lots of other refinements and improvements to the system software overall.

"You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in" you wont have to, you can set it to default offline.

 

There are some interesting features in this update.  I like it,

Disappointing that PC Remote Play isn't compatible with Windows 7, was hoping to ditch the unofficial version this week.

When will it go live though? I can't download it yet.

 

Only thing I am interested in is the friend notifications when someone comes online, other than that the others don't matter to me.

 

 

I still wish we could put our trophy list in Alphabetical order like on Ps3.

 

 

 

Nevermind, I went to the official blog and it says it is out tomorrow.

Remote play on PC/Mac looks interesting. I'll be testing it out on my Mac with a wired connection and maybe I'll give it a shot on my 8" Windows tablet, just for kicks.

Why did this topic say it's up now when it won't be until tomorrow? :hmm: Not trying to nitpick.

Yet we still can't see communities in the Playstation App. That's my biggest wish these days.

Still no "see trophies while offline" feature. 

Disappointing. 

The only thing I'm looking forward to is the sign in notification for friends. 

Appear offline feature won't be used by me... i actually love the attention I get when online. 

You wouldn't believe the how many cute dudes ask me for nudes every time I sign in. 

I'm sure all the pretty ladies on psnp can relate... I'm sure they both suffer with the same social affliction. 

It's so tough being cool and beautiful.

i'm not really complaining, I just don't think these are features worth all the hype, apart from remote play on PC :)

I get so sick of reading these comments. Obviously, some people will have opinions one way, and some will have them the other. I don't think the same person is complaining that a feature is absent, and then complaining that a feature is present.

 

Anyway, getting back to the thread, I could care less about these new features, but not much. Mostly, I'm happy that the notification of friends going online is optional.
