Family managers/guardians can apply playtime restrictions in two ways. If parents are feeling generous, they can extend play time from a smartphone or computer. The kid will get notifications, so they know how long they have to save their game before playtime is over.
There's also the option to add extra game time an the choice to automatically log the child out of the PS4 once their allotted playtime is over. Guardians can set play time limits via the PS4, or by logging into a PlayStation account on PC or mobile. To access this feature, go to Settings Family Management on your PS4.
The new Gold Wireless Headset features a new design that's slimmer with improved over-ear cushions to make it even more comfortable. In addition, you'll be able to hide apps such as demos, betas etc with the Hide Apps option.
The "This PS4" tab will list all of the applications that are installed on your PS4 system, while a tab with your name/avatar will list all of the apps purchased with your PSN ID.
The update also brings with it a PS Plus tab that let you see at a glance what games are in the Monthly Free Games Library.
Here's what's coming with PS4's big 5.50 update

With Background Music on PS Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now.
When you're on the Media Player or the USB Music Player, "triangle" will work as the shortcut for play or pause, and the "square" button as the volume control. If your subscription has lapsed, games on the system will be shown with a lock icon on top of the PS Plus logo. Once the image has been imported from USB, users can zoom, crop and preview them. Just go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. You can also hide any apps that seem to always be an eyesore, delete old notifications (finally), import custom wallpapers from a USB stick, customize tournaments team pages, and try out the new supersampling mode for PS4 Pro users, which enables you to enjoy an advanced visual performance boost.
Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile. As reported back in January, those who have a PS4 Pro but not a 4K TV can still take advantage of games that render to higher resolution. Xbox One added play limits previous year with the Creators Update, and the Xbox One X hardware has been able to supersample games since last November. However, users should note that certain games might not be enhanced by this new feature.
