System software update 3.00 for the PS4 is currently being tested, and some screenshots are filtering through social media, showing more of the upcoming features.
Below you can see the Communities welcome screen, the text is in German, but it’s definitely interesting, as it gives some info on how they work.
“Welcome to communities. Friends playing together. Join a Community or start your own to easily find a multiplayer party, to start a conversation, or just to spend time with people who have the same interests as you. Communities you join will be displayed in your profile, and information about game sessions in this community will be displayed publicly.”
Here’s an example of a community.
Below is the events notification, that has its own icon in the menu bar, and works similarly to the notifications screens.
The new Friends menu, which now includes an entry for Communities and Favorite Groups.
Below you can see the ability to comment on a friend’s trophy.
We also get a couple more screenshots of the screenshot format menu and of the chat stickers.
