Sony is working on a new system update for the PlayStation 4. The company confirmed last month that it’s developing PlayStation 4 system update version 5.0 and that a beta will be released in August. While one is yet to be released, a new report claims that the patch notes for this release have been leaked.

According to a report published by Eurogamer, which claims to have obtained the leaked patch notes for PlayStation 4 system update version 5.0, one of the major changes that this update will bring includes the ability to stream gameplay in full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames-per-second over Twitch with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

A PSN-related update will enable users to follow any PlayStation Network member without having to add each other as friends. This is similar to how it is on the Xbox One where one member can follow the other without the two having to add each other as friends.

The update will bring several minor tweaks as well. For example, the notifications and upload/download statuses will be visible from the Quick Menu that can be accessed by holding the PlayStation button on the controller.

Sony is yet to confirm when it’s going to release system update version 5.0 for the PlayStation 4. It hasn’t even confirmed when the beta is going to start.
