Sony has revealed that the release date for PS4 update 3.50 will be tomorrow. They also revealed the several major features that it comes with.

All of the announced features for PS4 update 3.50 were revealed via the PlayStation Blog. It should be rolling out on April 6th, 2016 for all PS4 owners. Be ready to update your system in order to experience the new features outlined below.

Appear offline: On your Profile tab, we’ve added a new option called ‘Online Status.’ From here, you can choose to ‘Appear Offline.’ This could be useful if you want to play games or watch movies without your friends knowing you’re online. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile, or by holding down the PS Button on DualShock 4 to bring up the Quick Menu.

Friend Online Notification: Now you can choose to get notified when your friends come online. To receive notifications, select a player on your friends list, press Options, and select ‘Notify When Online.’

User Scheduled Event: On the Events tab, we’re adding the ability to schedule gameplay sessions with your friends. Just select ‘Create Event,’ and you’ll be able to make an invitation for an upcoming gameplay session. Choose the day, time, game, and send it off to your friends. When your event starts, users who registered will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.

You can also share an event to a group, or a community that you’re a member of. Once shared, the event will be sent as a message, or posted to a community wall, and members can register from there.

Play Together: This feature 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 features that PS4 update 3.50 includes is Remote Play via a PC or Mac computer. You will need to have Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 or later for it to work. For Mac users, you need OS X 10.10 or OS X 10.11.
