New Features in PS4 Software Update 4.5…..PS4 Software update 4.5 is out tomorrow, below are some of the new features
External HDD Support
With this update, you have the option to store content to an external HDD. Just plug a USB 3.0 HDD into your PS4, you now have more space on the console.
This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu.
Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.
This update adds the ability to set your favorite in-game screenshot as the background image for PS4’s home screen. Drop-shadows on text, and the option to dim the Function Area, will help keep the system icons and texts on the home screen clearly visible even if the background image you selected is super bright.
Quick Menu Refresh
Now the Quick Menu will cover even less of your gameplay screen, and you’ll be able to access handy Party features via Online Friends, like creating new parties, inviting friends, and joining parties, without transitioning to the separate Party app.
Simplified Notification List
You can quickly access the Notification settings from the Options Menu to turn off or customize which pop-up notifications appear on your screen, so you’re only being notified about your top priorities.
3D Blu-rays on PlayStation VR
If you’re a fan of 3D movies, and you own PlayStation VR — this update adds the ability to view 3D movies in stereoscopic 3D directly on the PS VR headset.
