Play Time Management was another important feature added into the update which allows the family members to take the control of the playtime and set the time accordingly.It has the ability to control when and for how long each individual child can play for. For example, you could allow your child to play for one hour between 3-4pm during the week and then for 4 hours between 9am-7pm on the weekend.
Along with the parental management, you can monitor and change the settings on the go from your PC or smartphone via a PSN account web portal. Library improvement allows you to add a new set of tabs and filters which makes it easier to organize and find content in your library.
