The NOBUNAGA 5.00 update also brings a lot of features to the social aspects and online communities within the PlayStation 4 environment. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen.

The Quick Menu, which can be accessed by pressing and holding down the PS button on the DualShock 4 controller, has also been updated.

While it will be interesting to hear the feedback from Update 5.0's beta testers, it's important to note that PS4 consoles undergoing the firmware trial may experience "unexpected issues", but Sony has assured fans that they can always downgrade the to current version of 4.73.

A new setting in the PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators Comments has been added. This can be enabled by going the new "Display Message to Spectator and Spectators' Comments" settings. 1080p 60fps streaming is now supported on Twitch for those who own a PS4 Pro. There's now also an option to turn off pop-up notifications while watching TV or other video content, as well as disabling message previews. This setting is set to "off" by default, so go to Settings Notifications to enable it. Users can also choose between white or black as the color of pop-up notifications. Now, users will be able to view more notifications inside the Quick Menu.

The Quick Menu will now show download progress and invitations. The Quick Menu is also getting a "Leave This Party" option.

The PS4 5.0 system update also adds a new tournaments bracket viewer.

You can now share an individual Spotify or PlayStation Music track via a message. The update is not bringing PSN ID changes or anything like that, it's bringing an overhaul to parent accounts, an expanded friend management system, 1080p support for Twitch on PS4 Pro and more.
