The next update for Sony's PS4, which is dubbed Musashi (or 3.50), has finally been detailed and lots of new and exciting features have been revealed.

According to Gamezone, the software update is only available to users who signed up to participate in the beta, but Sony did release some new details on the features that are coming with the update such as the ability to appear offline, scheduling an event and perhaps the most anticipated feature to remote play through a PC or Mac.

Sony's Remote Play apps for the PC and Mac will bring the company in line with competitor, Microsoft. The Xbox One currently includes game streaming to Windows 10, but does not support streaming to the Mac.

See the full list of features coming to 3.50 below:

  • Friend Online Notification – Want to know the moment your friends come online? With this update, you can, as we’ve added an option to be notified when members of your friends list sign in on the network. Notifications can be tailored to certain friends.
  • Appear Offline – Sometimes you want to play a game or watch a movie without being interrupted. Now it’s easier to go incognito as we’ve added the option to appear offline. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile or the Quick Menu.
  • User Scheduled Event – Now it’s easier to organise a game session. We’ve added the ability to schedule a future gameplay session with your friends on the system. When your event starts, users who registered for the event will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.
  • Remote Play (PC/Mac) – We’re bringing PS4 Remote Play to Windows PC and Mac. This feature won’t be available to test in the beta, but you can look forward to it soon.
  • Dailymotion, new service partner in Share feature – Dailymotion, an additional live streaming service, will become available for PS4 users to enhance their broadcast experience. Like other live streaming services available on PS4, users will enjoy the following features: Activity Feed, What’s New Broadcast Info Tile, Live Detail and Live from PlayStation.

If you were selected for the closed beta you can download the feature right now and try it out for yourself.
