As a quick reminder, here are all the new features arriving in tomorrow’s update in list form, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:

PlayStation 4 Update 2.0 ‘Masamune’

USB Music Player

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.

Change colors

In addition to the ability to add a theme, PS4 owners can also change the background of the home screen from light blue to one of seven new colors: gold, blue, red, green, purple, pink, and gray.

Players You May Know

PS4 will now suggest players you may know as potential friends in the ‘What’s New’ section.

Enhancements to Live Broadcasting

Masamune brings a variety of improvements to live broadcasting on PS4. In the Live From PlayStation app, PS4 owners can now select a Featured channel, which includes official broadcasts from PlayStation, broadcasts from people on a players friend list, and any game channel that the player has followed. Additionally, Live From PlayStation now has filters for searching broadcasts on a specific game, as well as support for archived broadcasts.

Content Area and Library

PS4’s Content Area, which shows the latest games and apps a PS4 owner has used, has been redesigned to help make it easier to quickly find and access content. It now shows 15 of a player’s most used apps or games, and additional items will be added to a player’s Library. The Library on PS4 has improved filter and sort functions to help organize contented by type (game / app / TV & video), name (a – z or z – a), recently used, or install date.

Enhanced Voice Commands

The ability to control PS4 using voice has been improved. Players can now say ‘PlayStation’ to begin commands, and ‘All Commands,’ to see a list of all voice command options available. New voice commands were added for live broadcasting, including “Start broadcast,” “End broadcast,” and “Find face.”

Add To Library

The monthly free PlayStation Plus games will have an ‘Add to Library’ button in the PlayStation Store. This button will add a game to a PS4 owner’s library without downloading it – saving space on their hard drive.

      The Z3 does support remote play in sometime in November. They said that at announcement. As for the Z2, I’m not sure. Why would you want MP3’s in the HDD? Most games take up around 40-70 GB.

      • Warlon

        Sorry for the late reply, but you can upgrade the HDD to 1TB. It would be nice to have the option. Z3 is now supported and I say the older sony phones, because we all know they are more than capable of streaming video and Sony is just trying to sell their current flagship model.

  • M1ke Daddy

    So can I put all my games in a single folder instead of stretching the bar?
    And when will I be able to delete things off my dash like share factory and music/video unlimited these are thing I never use and all it does is take up space
