It's been in beta for what feels like an eternity, but PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.50 will finally be released to the public starting tomorrow. The update, as previously reported, includes a whole host of new social features and system software improvements – including oft-requested options like the ability to appear offline and enable friend notifications.

Other additions include the ability to create scheduled gaming events for you and your friends, as well as Remote Play compatibility on the PC and Mac. To take advantage of this, you'll need to connect a DualShock 4 controller to your computer via USB, but it seems like you'll have plenty of options to select the resolution and framerate that suits you best.

The remaining improvements are minor but welcome, with the ability to livestream to DailyMotion among them. Teenagers will now also be able to create PlayStation Network accounts, while you'll be able to check the status of Sony's servers directly on the console. Moreover, you'll be able to "retweet" shared videos and screens, while the PlayStation Plus hub will be given a makeover.

Lots and lots of features, then – but are these things that you're interested in? Personally, we reckon that this feels like a necessary update, but it's lacking that headline feature – like folders, perhaps – that we've all been screaming about for years. Oh well, there's always PS4 firmware update v4.00 to look forward to, right?
