Sony has finally lifted the curtains off PlayStation 4’s upcoming firmware update 2.0, and it seems to be the biggest update on the console yet, as it brings in highly demanded features like theme support, changing of background color, SharePlay, YouTube and more.
People have been craving for theme support on PS4 for quite a while now, and finally; this new update will ensure that you will be able to change the looks of your interface to your liking.
Furthermore, it will allow SharePlay to be activated with a press of a share button on DualShock 4. The same share button can also be used to upload gameplay clips straight to YouTube without any hassle.
Broadcasting and Live from PlayStation app has been revamped as well, to make them even more user-friendly.
Content Area of PS4, which displays the latest games and apps, has also been redesigned so that you can access what you are looking for rather easily, and if you want, you can re-organize the whole space using The Library App.
Sony offers some free titles every month but due to lack of space available on the console, many people just ignore them; however, they will not have to do it anymore as Sony has provided an option of “Add to Library” which will let you get the game, and then it will be up to you to download it whenever you feel like playing.
The update 2.0 will also allow you to back up your data on USB storage device, including settings, screenshots, video clips, save data, download data and more.
Apart from the aforementioned features, the update will also include new voice commands, USB Music Player and some other unannounced features. The update 2.0 doesn’t have a fixed release date yet, but Sony did hint on when you will be getting it.
We have not yet announced a date. That said we don’t want you guys playing some of the biggest games of the year without the biggest update of the year.
Knowing that, we can expect PS4 firmware update 2.0 to see the light of day in late October or early November.
