PlayStation 4’s 4.00 Beta Starts Tomorrow – Get A Sneak Peek at Upcoming Features
PlayStation Australia today is pleased to announce that the beta for PS4’s upcoming 4.00 update rolls out tomorrow for everyone included in the public beta program. The 4.00 system software update will allow you to personalise your PS4 experience and enjoy a more streamlined interface with new ways to connect and share.
Below is a glimpse at some of the new features of this system software update to personalise your PS4 experience and enjoy a more streamlined interface with new ways to connect and share:
Lots of adjustments and improvements have been made to PS4’s main UI. That includes a range of changes, like revised pop-up notifications, updated system icons and new system backgrounds to choose from. As a whole, it all adds up to a more refined and easy to use UI.
This menu has been overhauled to make it faster and easier to use. One big change is that the menu now only covers a portion of the screen, meaning you don’t need to leave gameplay entirely. You can also customise the Quick Menu to add shortcuts for the features you want immediate access to. For instance, you can add Online Friends to your Quick Menu that will show the online status of your friends, as well as shortcuts to your Favourite Groups and Communities and lots more.
The Share Menu has similarly been overhauled, which appears once you press the Share button on Dualshock 4. Like the Quick Menu, it only covers a portion of the screen. It will save the last social network you shared video clips or screenshots to and allow you to share screenshots directly to a Community wall, making the process of sharing a screenshot or video a bit faster and more streamlined.
Folders and Library Organisation
With this update, functionality is being added to create folders on PS4’s content launcher and library. This will help collect your favourite games and select apps in one place for quick and easy access. The Library will be updated with a new tab called Purchased Content, which will show all of the content you own while your main library will only show content that is currently installed on your PS4. If you’ve downloaded a lot of games, demos, and game betas over the years, this should really help de-clutter your Library.
