Features for PS4 Update "Musashi", Beta Starts Tomorrow

Sony has revealed some of the new features for it's upcoming update for PS4 codenamed "Musashi". If you signed up to join the beta, you'll be able to check out some new features starting tomorrow. Here is a list of features courtesy of the Playstation Blog:

New Social Features

  • Friend Online Notification – Want to know the moment your friends come online? With this update, you can, as we’ve added an option to be notified when members of your friends list sign on the network.
  • Appear Offline – Sometimes you want to play a game or watch a movie without being bothered by friends. Now it’s easier to go incognito as we’ve added the option to appear offline. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile or the Quick Menu.
  • User Scheduled Event – Time for a play date! We’ve added the ability to schedule a future gameplay session with your friends on the system. When your event starts, users who registered for the event will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.
  • Play Together – This features 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) – We’re bringing PS4 Remote Play to Windows PC and Mac. This feature won’t be available to test in the beta, but you can look forward to it soon.
  • Dailymotion – With this update, you’ll be able to live stream directly to Dailymotion on PS4. We’ll also support archiving live broadcasts, like we do for other streaming services.

These are just some of the features that are going to be in the new big update. I'm not completely sold on the social features as I don't usually get into the social features, but I think being able to setup an event is pretty cool. 

The remote play feature is pretty neat. I love using remote play on my Vita, it could be cool to be able to do that on my computer as well. Apparently we'll find out what more of the features are later as well as a release date but I'd say these are fairly decent so far. What do you guys think?

Umm play together?.... I can already do that in a party chat. Do they even look at what they have now? Party chat shows what games people are playing and I can easily join my friends on that. Hell, that's pretty much the fastest way to join squads in rainbow six. That's the only way to party up in battlefront, which was a mistake.

What they should do is fix their Damn share features. Videos are missing under what's new. I can't share to my standard facebook audience (custom) now. I have to go on Facebook to change that setting for each video now. I got a notification that someone left a comment but I keep getting errors when I try to check. I thought it was just mine but my friends are having problems with that too. Fix things before you do more stuff.
