The update includes some major improvements such as PS4 Pro owners now being able to stream 1080p and 60 frames per second. PSVR is adding 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound support, and the friends list is being changed up a bit so you can now create lists for people that you only play one game with. For example, you can now create a 2k18 friends list that will only include friends you play it with. There are more smaller improvements being added, such as the quick menu and notifications are being changed up a bit and there are also some performance enhancements being added to the system.
