Family Management is found under Parental Controls/Family Management (formerly Parental Controls), then select Family Management.
With the system update comes a terminology change from ‘master account’ and ‘sub account’ relationship to a Family Manager that can have Adult Family members, as well as Child Family members.
Family Manager - formerly Master Account, has Child Family Member(s)
Adult Family Member - formerly Master Account, has no attached Child Family Member(s)
Parent/Guardian - new permission level for an Adult Family Member
Child Family Member - formerly Sub Account
The Family Manager and/or Parent/Guardian can set unique parental controls per individual Child Family Member.
A Family can have up to six additional PSN account holders (besides the Family Manager) and a maximum of 15 total user profiles without PSN accounts.
Adding COPPA to verify parental permission for Child Family Members. This only applies to US accounts.
Actions to Take
No actions needed. Sub accounts linked to your master account will automatically become Child Family Members when the PS4 is updated with the System 5 update.

Custom Lists Replaces Favorite Groups
Custom Lists found under Friends, replaces the old Favorite Groups.
In place of the current ‘Favorite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab within Friends, which allows you to create and edit custom lists of your friends. This makes it easier for you to manage your friends and access specific groups. For example, you can create a custom list of your Destiny teammates and easily send them raid invites.
For more information, please visit the PS4 User Guide for Custom Lists.
You’ve already been able to share your favorite music to Twitter and Facebook via PlayStation Music, but now you’ll also be able to share via messages using your PS4. If your friends are on PS4, they can listen to the track right inside the message by booting up Quick Menu, and if they’re on their mobile device, they can jump directly to the Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song.
In addition, if you’re part of multiple message groups, you can now easily leave several groups at once. Click Options in the message list, select Leave, and choose the message groups you want to leave.
Quick Menu Updates
If you want to keep an eye out on what’s happening under Notifications, like the progress of your game downloads/installations or new party invites, you can now access this directly from the Quick Menu so you don’t have to step away from your game every time you want to check your notifications.
Also, we’ve added a ‘Leave Party’ option in the Quick Menu, so you can easily exit a party and go right back to playing your game, and the system clock in the upper-right corner of the screen.
Broadcast feature updates
If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen. Once a spectator clicks on the community button, they’ll be able to jump directly to your community page to check out the details.
We’ve added a new setting in PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators’ Comments. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast is displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode and displayed on stream. This makes it much easier for VR broadcasters to keep up on comments and communicate with their viewers.

PS4 Pro will now support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.
You can now toggle who can send you private messages: Anyone, Friends Only, No one
Modified organization of privacy settings within new categories: Games, Social, Public Profile
