When the PlayStation received it’s new firmware update 3.5 earlier this week, Sony focused on some of the largest features included: the ability to appear offline, setting notifications for when friends go on or offline and the expansion of remote play to PC and Mac computers.

However, there are a number of small, unannounced features that one Reddit user named IceBreak has compiled that were included in the new patch as well.

  • The screenshot notification can be disabled allowing for multiple, consecutive screenshots. The noise is still present to indicate the function activated.
  • Live from PlayStation now offers a search function for its games list from which players can pin up to three games to the top.
  • The USB music player function has returned.
  • Chat party sizes can now be set by the party leader, offering 2-7 member options on top of the default amount of 8.
  • The PS4’s hard drive can now be upgraded to support up to 4TB worth of memory. (some complications are known to occur in this feature)

What is your favorite feature from update 3.5? And more importantly – what feature are you still waiting to see come to your PS4?
