We knew that the PS4 2.0 firmware update would be available today, but if you’re about this morning then you can get straight to downloading. It’s 218 MB in size, so shouldn’t take long to download if you have a half decent internet connection.
This update allows you to change themes of your PS4 as well as the colours of your home screen, play music (MP3 or AAC) through the PS4 via a USB device, upload videos straight to YouTube, and more. Perhaps the most interesting feature is Share Play, which lets you play a local game over the internet, streaming to your friend’s console. The video below explains that in more detail.
In the update notes, there are some extra features which we didn’t previously know about. Those include being able to set the length of time your controller will charge on standby (now named “rest” mode), a list of voice commands in settings, mouse functionality, easy sending of voice messages, quick access of notifications by using the PS button when they appear, and battery notifications for new devices.
