The times, they are-a changing.
PlayStation 4 players can expect to get an update tomorrow which will add several cool new features to the console. According to the official PlayStation Blog, update 3.50 (codenamed MUSASHI) will start rolling out on Apr. 6.
The update will add several new features, including:
You will be able to now hide your presence online when you boot up your console. This will be useful to all those who want to play or watch a movie without being interrupted, and for those pulling a “sick day” when a big new game is released.
Friend Online Notification
This feature will give you a notification when a friend comes online. Simple, but very useful when you want to play some online multiplayer.
User Scheduled Event
On the events tab, you’ll now be able to schedule game sessions with your chums. You can send the schedule to your friends individually or as a group. When the event begins, all those who’ve accepted the invitation will automatically be added to a party. You can also share events on community pages.
This will allow all members of a party to easily see what other games players are playing and allows users to easily join them.
Remote Play for PC and Mac
The remote play function will now be compatible with both PC and Mac. The post stated:
Remote Play on Mac / PC is compatible with the following system software:

When you share a screenshot or video, you will now be able to tag friends when you upload them to Facebook or Twitter.
PSN Status Check
You can now quickly check on whether PSN is down by going to Settings – Network.
Teen Account Creation
