PlayStation 4 Update 2.00 i.e. the latest advancement that Sony is making on their console is said to introduce a lot of customization options along with providing new features to the users.

Scott McCarthy the director product planning and software innovation at Sony America took to the official PlayStation US Blog with a detailed account of the changes and additions that they are making to the console.

While the highlights of the PlayStation 4 Update 2.00 known to us previously were Share Play, YouTube Support and the introduction of Themes, McCarthy also detailed some other features; most notably the ability to listen to music through a USB while you play games.

PS4 owners can play their own music in the background while playing a game using USB Music Player. After inserting a USB stick loaded with music into the PS4, a new option for USB Music Player will appear. Supported filename extensions include MP3, MP4, M4A, and 3GP.

However, you will still not be able to copy the music files to the PlayStation 4 and you will not be able to use the USB Media Player at the same time when Music Unlimited is being used.

That being said, the update is going to let you customize the background colors of the home screen (you can choose gold, blue, red, green, purple, pink or gray). Moreover, you will get a detailed content area with the latest games you have played and apps you have used.

There is a lot more that the PlayStation 4 Update 2.00 is going to bring to the tray, you may go here to read up on what they have detailed so far.
