The company has yet to detail the patch publicly, but Eurogamer has obtained a copy of the update's release notes.

With the upcoming firmware update for the PS4 Pro, the console will let players stream from Twitch at 1080p resolution and 60 frame rates per second. Currently, the console allows for Shareplay and Remote Play in 1080p.

Once the update is applied to either PS4 consoles, users will be able to follow anyone's account, which at present is only possible for verified accounts such as games, developers and YouTubers.

The PlayStation 4 next big system update, update 5.0, is going to introduce plenty of new features which will make sharing of content and interactions better than ever, according to a fresh report.

For developers, the change is to "boost the viral potential of UGC". There will be settings to prevent non-friends from following you, and users can be blocked as well. You could previously follow specifically curated and verified accounts but this allows players to expand their content networks without pushing the limits of their friends list on PlayStation.

Copper poisoning can cause people to experience nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and liver failure. If you search for mule mugs on Amazon, numerous top sellers are unlined pure copper.

More options will be made available for those with sub or family accounts. There can now be multiple adult accounts, and these can set parental locks on specific accounts so personalize the communications, content, and spending limit of each child. Adult accounts can also send requests to each other to join the same family. To help manage family accounts, there will be a new PC/smartphone web app.

One small but handy change is that system notifications will now be visible from the Quick Menu, so you don't need to return to the Home screen each time.

Other additions to the interface include push notifications, additional languages including Czech, Thai, Greek, Vietnamese, Romanian, and Hungarian, and the ability to see spectator comments on screen while you're playing a VR game.

The PlayStation 4 5.0 firmware update will launch on a yet to be confirmed date.
