The upgrades to streaming from the console is the main highlight of the update, according to an early copy of the release notes obtained by Eurogamer.

The headline feature for streamers is that you can now stream at 1080p60 to Twitch if you have a PlayStation 4 Pro, which simply latches onto what's already possible via Remote Play and Share Play.

According to Eurogamer, the PS4 Pro update will bring a series of improvements.

Other features of the firmware update include an overhaul to the console's system for master and sub accounts, the ability to follow PSN users, and the addition of notifications in the PS4's quick menu. Right now, the only accounts you can follow are verified accounts, which are mostly made up by official game accounts, developers, and popular Youtubers. On the developer side, Sony says this will "boost the viral potential of [user-generated content]". You'll also be able to follow whoever you want without needing a friend request to be verified, and without filling up your friend limit.

Players will also be able to follow any user - like Twitter or Xbox One. This means you don't have to fill up your friends list in order to get updates.

Once 5.0 drops, system notifications can be viewed from the Quick Menu without the need to go back to the Home screen. 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. Additionally, requests can be sent by other PS4 users to join the same family. You will also be able to check the status of your uploads/downloads here too.

There are more changes coming to the PS4 Pro, such as support for new languages: Czech, Thai, Greek, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Romanian and Hungarian.

Details about the PlayStation's upcoming firmware version 5.0 have leaked ahead of the software's actual launch, tipping console owners about the features and tweaks they can expect in the near future.
