I like the update a lot. Especially the redesigned game drop down menus are welcome. No more random youtube shit blasting and clogging the screen right as you go down the menu.

Having your trophies list for every game under the game tab is cool to keep track of what you've unlocked on the specific game without going fully to the trophy list.

how deep is it in the quick menu?
Sound/Devices - Turn Off Device - DUALSHOCK 4

The only positive is it's a little quicker now since you don't have to click on Sound/Devices. Just highlighting it brings up the next menu with the Turn Off Device on. But you still got go into that menu to select your dualshock.

same as before then. oh well. They really don't want us to turn off controllers. Can you pin rest mode at least?

Every beta are loteries, they don't care if you're a fan or been here since day one etc... they only people they are caring for are YouTubers or people that can make free avertissement for their games...

I was just about to post asking if this is new. I wasn't sure if they had extended it in a past update.

If not, then you can just hold the PS button for 10 seconds to turn it off.
I hope in a future update they change it to 5 seconds. It's actually quicker--though more work--to dive through the menu to turn off the controller instead of holding the button for 10 seconds. Plus, 5 seconds is the standard for manually turning off computers (at least it used to be from what I remember).

I know you need to hold the button to even bring up the menu, but it's only for a second or two. So, if you're holding for 5 seconds, it's likely you meant to hold it at least that long to turn off the controller. Plus, it's not hard to turn it back on if you did it accidentally.

Can anyone clear their notifications? There's no start menu in notifications anymore. Is this a bug I need to report to Sony or an intended feature?

Please post such findings on the official beta forums, it helps everyone testing the firmware :)
I will but I don't have access to it yet, I have known it take a couple of days for them to update permissions for people.

You spend like 4 seconds of your life to turn off the controller...
Yeah but it would be such a nice quality of life improvement. If you're like me and use Netflix and YouTube a lot to cue up long watching sessions then this should be, and easily COULD be a one button press setting in the quick menu that literally takes you about 2 seconds max to initiate. If you leave the controller on you get interrupted with a notification that's it's disconnected 10 minutes in to whatever you want. I turn my controller off A LOT and it would really be an easy way for me to enjoy my console that little bit more. Holding the button for 10 seconds sounds quick but it absolutely stops you in your tracks.
