For those that have signed up, PS4 system update 7.00 Beta 5.00 is available to download now. The full release Update 7.00 is coming to all users in about two weeks time.
The main features coming in this update are that the number of players in a party is getting a boose from eight to sixteen as well as a bump in quality of voice chat. HDR calibration is also coming as well as the PS4 being able to install system updates without having to restart and certain updates will install themselves automatically while in rest mode.
The HDR calibration is a welcome additin that can be used to get better picture quality in streaming apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime.
The update is coming in at 469.7MB so it shouldn't take too long to download.
Finally, users realized that in the settings there is an HDR calibration. That is, you can set up the PS4 image on your TV for each game before enjoying it. Currently, HDR is automatic and you cannot handle it.
Firmware 7.00 is still in this testing phase and has no release date yet.
